Kevin Hart won his fourth MVP of the annual NBA Celebrity Game last Friday, but afterwards all anyone could remember from the game was Mo’ne Davis. The 13-year-old Little League World Series star, crossed him up with a ridiculous spin move.
The play left the 35-year-old comedian so embarrassed, in fact, he has since announced his retirement from all future NBA celebrity games.
“I’m officially retired from the Celebrity All-Star Game,” Hart told The Jim Rome Show. “I can’t do it anymore, I’ve done all there is to do, my kids are happy, they feel like their dad went out on top. I think if I go back it’s only going to get worse, I can’t go down, I can only go up, and I left with a bang. I did what all the greats say you should do.”
The actor then admitted the real reason why he’s walking away from the game, 13-year old phenom, Mo’ne Davis.
“That little girl embarrassed me on live television,” said Hart. “It’s only going to get worse if I keep going back. I don’t want to see what’s going to happen next.”
It appears Hart has come to the sad realization all athletes eventually face by the time they reach their mid-30s. It’s a young person’s game and we’re just here to watch. But then Hart went on to teasingly call for some investigation into some PED use:
“Basically, any 13-year old girl that can throw an 80 mile-per-hour fastball, something’s wrong. I want the girl checked for substances, I said it. I want her checked, the girl’s too good.”
Don’t try to guard Mo’ne Davis one-on-one.
