Secretary of Education Arne Duncan Schools Everyone In Sprint Celebrity Game


by Maurice Bobb / @ReeseReport

Turns out film star Kevin Hart actually has a heart. After winning the Sprint Celebrity Game MVP Friday night via the fan vote for the third straight year, the diminutive funnyman did the right thing and bequeathed the hardware to its rightful owner.

“Hold on, everybody,” said the 5-2 actor, who, besides over-dribbling, only finished with 7 points and 4 assists. “You know what? I think this shows that I have fans that I love but unfortunately I can’t take this one. I have to be a humble loser. Arne Duncan man, I got to respectfully give you the MVP trophy. Arne Duncan, phenomenal player, I’m going down as a loser this year but on the bright side, my movie About Last Night is in theaters this weekend. Go see it. Arne Duncan, congratulations man.”

Secretary of Education Duncan, who dropped an impressive 20 points (a new record for the Celebrity Game), 11 rebounds and 6 dimes to seal the 60-56 win for his East team, schooled the entire West squad with his court vision and hustle. Case in point: his nifty behind the neck pass to a cutting Skylar Diggins was SportsCenter-worthy for sure.

In a losing effort, Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan finished with 16 points and 7 boards. The New Jersey native was breakin’ ankles and taking it the hole all game, forcing the East head coach Jalen Rose to command his players to hone in on him to stop the bleeding.

All in all, it was the most competitive contest in recent memory. Rap star Romeo Miller played well, retired NBA player Bruce Bowen played well and, let’s face it, even Hart kept the game entertaining with his on-court banter and shenanigans. Hart riffed with the refs, went rogue on West head coach Bill Simmons, got into it with mascots, played to the capacity crowd and gave Bowen the business the entire game, getting tangled up with him on the floor and, before a jump ball between Bowen and Jesse Williams, yelled out that Bowen “had the knees of an 80-year old woman.” 

Other pleasant surprise included Snoop Lion, who hustled and dazzled on the court as a last minute entry. The “Nuthin But A ‘G’ Thang” MC played stingy defense, crashed the boards and even dropped a pretty J from behind the arc on ‘em. Snoop is welcome back anytime.

    Damn, that pass was actually legitimately great. If I saw that in an NBA game I would be impressed.

    Micheal Jordan played well, but I am tired of Kevin Hart, he actually hurt the game. Also why hasn’t any NFL stars played in the game, TO played won two MVPs, needs some NFL stars.

    I think Jimmy Graham would be pretty good on it. I can see him thrown down a 360.

    Kevin Hart didn’t win MVP and then let Duncan have it. The way the rules go, the player with the most fan votes from the winning team wins MVP. Kevin Hart could get 99 out of ever 100 votes and he still wouldn’t get MVP because he was on the losing team. To be funny, ESPN named Hart MVP who knew he had to give up the award. Not that Hart cared. There’s a video of him freestyle rapping a cappella in Fabolous’ kitchen. I think he was battling Paul Cane. When your life’s that dope you don’t care about silly MVP awards.
