Arne Duncan scores 20 in celeb game
NEW ORLEANS -- Film star Kevin Hart's reign as the best celebrity basketball player of NBA All-Star Weekend has come to a humbling end, even if the fans in attendance thought otherwise.
The 5-foot-2 Hart had seven points and four assists for the West team in a 60-56 loss to the East squad Friday night, but fans voted him the game MVP for a third straight year.
Rather than accept the trophy, Hart insisted it go to U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who had 20 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for the East. The 6-5 Duncan played at Harvard.
Hart said he had to be "a humble loser."
