Draymond Green and Kevin Hart tied in a three-point shooting competition during the 2016 All-Star Weekend in Toronto. While you may think that Green would recognize Hart’s game, as it turns out, this doesn’t mean the Warriors star respects the diminutive actor’s basketball ability. In a recent appearance on Conan, Conan O’Brien brought up some of Hart’s comments about his basketball skills, and Green simply wasn’t feeling it.
Even though video evidence exists of Hart tying Green in this three-point competition (side note: I saw it happen with my own two eyes in Toronto), Green refuses to dignify Hart’s trash talking with a response.
“There were a few times when he was shooting well,” Green told Conan. “And I was shocked.” That’s as much credit as he gives the comedian in the entire segment. When Conan brings up the image of the two sharing the trophy afterwards, Green deflects it with a joke about Hart’s size compared to the trophy.
That’s all he can do to avoid being confronted with the fact that a non-NBA player tied him in a shooting competition in front of an arena full of people. With that said, Hart’s comment that Green doesn’t wash the backs of his knees deserves a more thorough response.
