Little Davis Spin Comedian Kelvin Hart In NBA All-Star Celebrity Game
This is like an enlightenment. For starters, the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game is typically not a particularly good showcase for quality basketball. At its best, it's an opportunity to see if a handful of famous people can play without embarrassing themselves. Come to think of it, it's a contest best viewed with Twitter at hand and a willingness to make jokes.
So it was interesting to see Thirteen-year-old Little League World Series sensation, Mo'ne Davis, one of the participant and she wasted no time in showing everyone what they wanted to see in the 2015 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the Madison Square Garden.
A few minutes into the game, Davis took on actor, comedian, and Kevin Hart and got to the hoop with a very impressive spin move.
The similarly short Davis and Hart were paired on the game's opening tip and immediately set about going at each other at both ends of the court. Hart made sure to post up Davis, which seems like a joke from one of his movies, and Davis tried to take it to him whenever she had the ball.
Those interested in the result of this utterly meaningless game should know that the West won 59-51 behind strong performances from Davis, Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera and Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler.
Pera seemed to take the game more seriously than anyone else, even attempting to beat New York Knicks legend Allan Houston with a Eurostep in the second half that sent him to the free-throw line. Houston responded by nailing a jumper in his face on the next possession.
And Hart decided that he will retire from the event despite winning the MVP for the fourth straight time; like anyone will believe him.
