No one said you had to be athletic to be a comedian. Kevin Hart does the smart thing here by getting out of Chris Paul’s way. He came in like a wrecking ball. No? Pop-culture faux pas?
CP3 Posterized Kevin Hart https://t.co/Nm7rudyB2o

It’s pretty clear Chris Paul has some unresolved anger from the playoffs. He’s likely a little ticked off he is not playing in the NBA Finals right now.
It is no surprise he is keeping company with a comedian — he probably needs some laughs. No doubt he got them by throwing this dunk down. Though I’m not sure the hoop is exactly regulation, CP3 gets up big. Of course, somebody runs on the court afterwards to rub it in on 5-foot-2 Kevin Hart.
Tuesday night is a big occasion for Hart. It is his premiere of Let Me Explain. The movie features Hart’s stand-up comedy performance live from Madison Square Garden from 2012. Chris Paul was only performing this posterizing dunk to “honor” his friend. Chris Paul took to Instragram:
In honor of my man @kevinhart4real movie premiere tonite I figured I would show how we spent yesterday… #SundayFunDay #DontJump #IWishICouldDoThatFaReal #HendrixSawItToo #ThinkLikeAManToo
This is not the first time the two stars have stepped on the same basketball court. Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony made cameos in Kevin Hart and Ice Cube’s Kevin Hart’s NBA Wish which is a 2 minute rap video that reminds everyone just how short Kevin Hart is — not that we needed reminding.
