Kevin Hart Rumors
The National Basketball Association and ESPN have announced the participants for the annual NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, with Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry tabbed to participate for a second straight year. This year’s game will tip off at 6 p.m. CT on Friday, Feb. 17, as part of NBA All-Star Weekend. The game will air live on ESPN from Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Last year, Lasry tallied eight points and six rebounds but his U.S. Team, led by actor and comedian Kevin Hart, fell to recording artist Drake and Team Canada, 74-64.
During an appearance on “Conan” Tuesday, Draymond Green trashed comedian and actor Kevin Hart’s basketball skills. Green and Hart competed in a three-point shootout during NBA All-Star Weekend, which somehow ended in a tie.
His slate of celebrity clients is growing again, too. Hamilton recently made a jacket for Slash of the newly reunited Guns N’ Roses. When he wanted to dress up as Martin Lawrence last Halloween, Kevin Hart had Hamilton recreate the jacket the ’90s sitcom star wore in the opening credits of his eponymous show. Then there’s Drake, who this winter asked Hamilton for a one-of-a-kind piece that paid tribute to Kobe Bryant. While sitting courtside the All-Star game in his hometown of Toronto, the hip-hop star showed off the $7,000 “Farewell Mamba” jacket.
That’s right: An NBA All-Star, one of the game’s best players, could not beat Kevin Hart in a shooting competition. We will never stop hearing about this. Hart is on every other commercial — including one, naturally, with Green right after this exhibition — and he is seemingly ominpresent on our television screens. The result was so surprising that a scripted bit after the competition — Green hoisting a trophy the size of Hart and pinning a runner-up ribbon on the comedian — fell flat when they tried to force it after the upset.
The NBA All-Star Celebrity game is just around the corner and the stars involved are gearing up for it. But who might those people be? The NBA announced this morning that Drake will coach the Canadian team while Kevin Hart will helm the team from the United States.
