Actor, comedian and basketball enthusiast Kevin Hart took home the MVP after his team (West) won the All-Star celebrity game on Friday, and he made sure everyone knew about it.
"My trophy case is amazing!" Kevin told ET Rocsi Diaz, who played for the East in the celeb game. "I'm a two-time MVP. What can I say? It hasn't been done."
Hart even predicted the outcome prior to warming up for the event, joking with Rocsi about his game plan.
"My strategy is very simple -- to be MVP again," said Hart, who took home the honor last year. "I'm going for an amazing stat line: 50 points, 40 assists, 35 rebounds, 22 steals and 10 blocks."
Fellow comedian Nick Cannon also predicted the outcome although he was on the losing team.
"I set my expectations extremely low," Cannon told Rocsi after the 58-38 loss. "I told you we weren't going to score. I told you they had a better team."
Even in defeat, the East did have one bright spot -- The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson, who unveiled an impressive jump shot.
