2015 NBA All-Star Friday: Kevin Hart, Rudy Gobert, Andrew Wiggins WOWed
Andrew Wiggins and Rudy Gobert led the World squad to an impressive win over Team USA. In the Celebrity Game, the West beat the East in what was fun, highlighted by Mo'ne Davis' sweet spin move and yet another Kevin Hart MVP performance, he did announce his retirement from basketball. "I can't do no more 4 times MVP" He was very impressive on the court, that little guy can play. Zipping around the knee caps of the big guys.
The West team was coached by ESPN personality Mike Golic and Spike Lee, who was wearing a blue hat with orange trim in honor of his New York Knicks. Lee directed a commercial that starred Davis. Carmelo Anthony along with ESPN personality Mike Greenberg coached the East team.
The game also included actors Anthony Anderson, Common, Nick Cannon, Sarah Silverman, Ansel Elgort, Chadwick Boseman, Jesse Williams and Michael Rapaport, who grew up in New York City. Williams, who stars on Grey's Anatomy, injured his knee with 5 minutes left in the game and was helped off the court and back to the locker room. Ouch, I felt so bad for him he looked like he was in a lot of pain.
Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan also played as did singer Win Butler of Arcade Fire.NBA Hall of Famer and New York native Chris Mullin played as did former New York Knicks' star Allan Houston. Current WNBA players Diggins, Tina Charles and Shoni Schimmel represented the league. Schimmel, who was the MVP of the WNBA All-Star game this past year, tricked Silverman — who was on the other team, to give her the ball under the basket which the Atlanta Dream star converted for a layup.
Half Time show was amazing : Nasri of Magic! performed, "Why do you have to be soo rude", loved it. NBA and the cocktails and food flowed at Madison Square Garden. This weekend is the hottest ticket in town.
