Turns out our Secretary of Education can ball, dominates Celebrity Game (VIDEO)

You can slam him over Common Core. Go ahead and criticize him for a love of standardized testing and the far-reaching impacts that has on our public education system.

But don’t say Secretary of Education Arne Duncan can’t ball.

Duncan was by far the best player on the court for the All-Star Weekend Celebrity Game, as he rebounded passed and shot his way to the MVP trophy. If you didn’t know this, Duncan was the co-captain of the Harvard basketball team while he was in college — he played D1 ball and it showed. He has a great court vision.

    He’s that old guy at the YMCA that dominates.

      That’s NOT a moving screen. Howard screened Wall and Wall continues to push Howard to try to go through the screen.

      By rule you’re supposed to try to go around the screen and Howard isn’t obligated to roll, he can set a stationary pick. It’s more of a foul on Wall if anything but the refs did the right thing by letting it go.

      He was a former pro player playing against a bunch of (mostly) scrubs including Bruce Bowen haha.

      I’m not that surprised he dominated even though he’s old but he’s like 6’6″.

    He played well and probably should have won MVP two years ago. He didn’t because they always give the award to the biggest “celebrity” at the time.

    Gotta give Kevin Hart credit for giving it up.

    He’s got that YMCA “Old man game”.

    Give Kevin Hart credit? For what? The funniest thing he ever did was a 2 min cameo in 40 Year Old Virgin, he gets waaayyy too much props. Arne should have gotten the MVP no question and Hart shouldn’t have even gotten near the mic.
