Kevin Hart challenges Draymond Green to 3-point shooting contest

Kevin Hart, listed at 5′ 4″ by Google, is challenging a man who’s over a foot taller to a 3-point shooting contest. Since the guy he’s calling out rarely backs down from challenges, Hart will probably get a chance to compete some way or another.

Surprise, surprise … Hart’s claims/threats look positively ridiculous.

— Draymond Green is making 41.9% of his threes against NBA defenders.

— Hart already lost a 3-point contest to a professional basketball player: a power forward named Cody Ellis, who plays in Australia. They battled from the FIBA distance, which is almost two feet shorter than the NBA 3-point line.

— Hart destroyed the competition in the Celebrity game, eh?

From USA Today:

Despite winning the game’s MVP award somehow, Hart acknowledged that it was time to retire on The Jim Rome Show.

“That little girl embarrassed me on live television,” Hart said. “It’s only going to get worse if I keep going back. I don’t want to see what’s going to happen next.”

Hart correctly pointed out that he won four straight Celebrity All-Star Game MVPs, but they were under questionable circumstances.

From NBA.com:

In last year’s Celebrity Game, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan dominated, posting 20 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. After fans voted Kevin Hart the game’s MVP despite finishing with just 7 points and 4 assists, Hart gave the award to Duncan.


This sounds like a fun event that could generate some money for charity, but Hart is going to meet the same fate as former Warriors head coach Mark Jackson.


“I told you, he can’t mess with me,” Green proclaimed. “When it’s crunch time, I show up!”

Green hasn’t responded to Hart’s tweets yet, so there’s still a chance for the pint-sized comedian to rescind his challenge. That would probably be the smart move, except Hart probably doesn’t mind getting embarrassed and knows Golden State’s gregarious power forward will play along.
