I’m not sure of the exact number, but I believe Kevin Hart was in 258 movies last year. Maybe not “Gravity” but I think every other one.

So I’m not sure how he has time, but the two-time reigning MVP will be back for the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, which takes place on Feb. 14, the Friday night of All-Star weekend in New Orleans.

The NBA released the rosters and they include Erin Heatherton (Victoria’s Secret model), Nick Cannon (“America’s Got Talent” host), Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg (both of ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike”), Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Columbus Short (“Scandal”), Michael B. Jordan (“That Awkward Moment”), Terrence Jenkins (E! News), Kristen Ledlow (of NBA TV’s “Inside Stuff”), Stan Verrett (ESPN SportsCenter anchor), and Arne Duncan (U.S. Secretary of Education).

Among the pros there will be three-time NBA Champion Bruce Bowen, plus WNBA stars Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock and Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky.

ESPN’s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose will coach the teams. ESPN will televise the game beginning at 7 p.m. ET on Feb. 14.

The NBA All-Star Weekend is Feb. 14-16 in New Orleans.

    “Michael B. Jordan (“That Awkward Moment”)”

    Do you mean that awkward moment when everyone realizes he’s not THAT Michael Jordan?

    Yes! Already can’t wait for the Bill Simmons sideline interviews

    Does Kevin Hart have antlers on in that picture or is the Bucks mascot standing behind him?

      HAHAHA! He has antlers.

      He’s wearing them. You mean to imply that you don’t follow All-Star weekend?

    Erin Heatherton, what a babe

    • legend30 - Jan 29, 2014 at 12:42 PM

      Kristen Ledlow is also a babe

      • fanofthegame79 - Jan 29, 2014 at 2:50 PM

        I agree legend. There are some outfits Ledlow wears on NBA Inside Stuff that makes me just stare at the tv without hearing a word being said (and it’s a decent show).

    Still waiting for the first funny thing out of Kevin Hart’s mouth.

    • lmoneyfresh - Jan 29, 2014 at 6:35 PM

      His stand up is actually quite funny. I can’t speak for his decision making regarding what movies he will be a part of but the guy is pretty funny.

    These are “celebrities”? Wow.

    Also, “Nick Cannon (“America’s Got Talent” host)” is hilarious to me for some reason.

    • denverhoopdreams - Jan 29, 2014 at 8:13 PM

      You mean Nick Cannon, the same guy involved with the Celebrity game in previous years? Was it not funny to you previously, or just now since you decided to make some kind of joke?

      • gerryb323 - Jan 30, 2014 at 8:58 AM

        I meant that his “claim to fame” is as the host of America’s Got Talent, not for any of the myriad other things he’s done. That’s like “Mariah Carey – American Idol judge”.

  7. cofran2004 - Jan 29, 2014 at 2:15 PM

    Eh, every game show seems to have trouble finding real celebrities. Watched dancing with the stars, well… ever? And I believe the last celebrity jeopardy game was three members from the cast of “Sharknado.” (not really)

  8. stayhigh_247 - Jan 29, 2014 at 5:34 PM

    Bill Simmons really? Instead of have him coach against Jalen why not go dig up Chris Broussard and make this thing a total travesty. These are the worst 2 “sports” guys on the planet. I hope Jalens team drags Simmons squad up and down the court.

    Kevin Hart should be outlawed for how funny he is. That dude kills me.

  10. ranfan12 - Jan 29, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    I never mind seeing Arne Duncan play lol. Guy got skills for days

    Better than the dunk contest
