NBA All-Star Celebrity Game 2012: Arne Duncan And Kevin Hart Lead Dwight Howard's Team

The NBA All-Star Celebrity game kicked off the festivities in Orlando this weekend, with a host of former NBA stars and celebrities playing in a very relaxed exhibition setting at the convention center. Dwight Howard coached one set of celebrities while Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant coached the other team. In the end, it was the Magic's Howard and his team who cruised to a 86-54 win.

Howard's East squad was lead by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and comedian Kevin Hart - who certainly grabbed everyone's attention with his on-court antics. Duncan, who regularly plays with President Obama, finished with 17 points and eight rebounds - good enough for the MVP of the game. One highlight of the game was a no-look pass Duncan fired with one hand on a breakaway for the East squad. Hart, on the other hand, had his night end prematurely when, as part of his act, he lost it and was unceremoniously run from the floor. Hart removed his jersey and threw his shoes into the air as part of the tirade.
