Kevin Hart on Mo'ne Davis: 'That little girl embarrassed me'

Thursday February 19th, 2015

At the All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, Kevin Hart announced he would be hanging up his sneakers after winning four consecutive fan votes for game MVP.

On Wednesday, Hart stopped by "The Jim Rome Show" and confirmed he would not be returning to the game, and admitted it was not just a desire to go out on top that inspired him to make the decision.

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

The "little girl" in question is Little League World Series star Mo'ne Davis, who put a spin move on Hart early in the game.


Davis has said her goal is to play point guard for UConn, and it looks like she has the skills to get there.
