When Kevin Hart Challenged Draymond Green To A Three-Point Contest At The 2016 NBA All-Star Game: "I'm A 4-Time MVP, You Go First!"

Kevin Hart is one of the biggest celebrity NBA fans in the world today. The famous actor is constantly spotted at NBA games, mostly to cheer for his hometown team, the Philadelphia 76ers. On top of that, Hart has also been a regular participant at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game and has been quite successful, winning 4 Celebrity All-Star game MVP trophies.

But Hart wanted a new challenge in 2016 and called out a professional NBA player who was an All-Star and an NBA champion at the time. Ahead of the 2016 three-point contest, Kevin Hart called out Draymond Green and challenged him to a three-point contest, a challenge that Draymond accepted.

Hart ruled out the coin toss and told Green to start the contest because he was a 4-time Celebrity All-Star game MVP. Green, despite not being a great three-point shooter, put up a respectable showing. Hart had a slow start but began making shots toward the end, but his final shot wasn't counted, and his score wasn't enough to beat Draymond Green.

After their contest, Green was handed a massive trophy to commemorate him as the winner of the shooting contest. And hilariously, Kevin Hart was given a small ribbon, despite how well he shot the ball. It was a truly hilarious interaction from what is considered one of the best All-Star weekends in NBA history.

Hart has been a lifelong NBA fan, and constantly hangs out and meets with NBA players. Given his nature as a comedian, most of his interactions are pretty funny. Dwyane Wade once gave Kevin Hart a toddler-sized Miami Heat jersey to troll him. On top of that, Hart once revealed the story of how he roasted Michael Jordan so much that he hasn't seen Jordan ever since.
