Not many people can say that they beat Olympic medalist Usain Bolt in a foot race, but comedian Kevin Hart can.On Friday night, during the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, the diminutive Hart and the lanky Bolt engaged in a race. Well, sort of.The two engaged in a mini competition in which they had to each race down one end of the court with a basketball, make a lay-up, and then reverse back down the court to make another. As you can see in the video above, Hart eeks out a narrow victory after getting the benefit of a head start, though.It turned out to be a big night for Hart, who also won MVP honors for the second straight year after dropping five points and three rebounds during his team's 58-38 win.

Usain Bolt is believed to be the fastest man on the planet, and he proved his athleticism is not limited to track and field. The Jamaican sprinter participated in the Celebrity All-Star Game Friday in Houston and threw down the best dunk by a non-NBA player. Sure, he may have taken a few steps and walked with the ball, but we can overlook that given the way he finished with emphasis...
FROM THE TRACK TO THE RACK
Did you think Usain Bolt was just a one trick pony? Well, if you did, this GIF will prove otherwise.
B-Ball On The Brain! - Usain Bolt Has Some Game After All; Slams One Down #allstarplus
For the last couple weeks there has been a video floating around of
Usain Bolt trying to shoot around.
In a word-- he was terrible. He was absolutely terrible.
The only saving grace is that the video itself is months old. Maybe he
has learned to play a little since then?...
The fastest man on the planet Usain Bolt was pretty much the only guy I wanted to see in the celebrity basketball game yesterday. They had a bunch of boring scrubs out there playing and the game was boring as hell because of it. Bolt was on First Take earlier in the day saying that he was going to dunk in the game, and he didn't disappoint. Check out the 6-5 sprinter...
Usain Bolt is probably the fastest man in the world. Therefore, he is likely one of the most athletic, as well.The 26-year-old has more Olympic medals than you can shake a stick at and he's also 6-foot-5, which makes him a prime candidate to flush a dunk every now and then.The Jamaican sprinter is participating in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game on Friday and displayed his athletic...
The NBA Celebrity All Star Game was on last night, and although at times I wonder if any excitement would make its way to the game, you have to take into factor these are celebrities and this game is all for fun.
After hearing the fastest man on the planet talk about how he played basketball all of his life on First Take, I was excited to see what Usain Bolt could do on the court...
For those of you not tuned into the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, then you missed this throw-down from Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.
Watch as he rises up with two-handed slam where he probably traveled:

The world’s fastest man also has some hops! In the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, Usain Bolt flashed his speed as he passed everyone on the fast break and threw one down. He may have traveled by taking an extra couple steps but who really cares right? Bolt later told Stewart Scott that he only took two steps but as you can see he may want to multiply that number by about four!
Coming into Friday’s annual celebrity All-Star game, Usain Bolt had one thing on his mind: to make a presence out on the hardwood for all viewers to see, and he did just that.
Bolt, who owns world records in the 100-meter and 200-meter dash, displayed his lightning-quick speed along with his unfiltered athletic ability against Kevin Hart‘s team. The Jamaican sprinter shocked...
Usain Bolt is 6’5″ and is probably has incredibly strong legs. So this shouldn’t be that surprising. But when you consider that he did it so effortlessly, I must say: not too shabby: [H/T: sbnation]
Tweet It’s a pretty well-known fact that Usain Bolt is fast. As the world record holder in both the 100 and 200 meter sprints, he’s arguably the fastest man on the planet. But I don’t think many people knew that the 6’5” Jamaican had hops. While competing in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Bolt showed [...]
I love how they keep on wanting Bolt to give props to other teams and players, but it's all about Kevin Garnett and the Celtics for the world's fastest man.
Big thanks to Celtics Lifer Tia Compenser for the video tip.

Since 2004, the NBA has tipped off its All-Star Weekend with the Celebrity Game, filling the void that MTV created when the network discontinued the annual Rock N’ Jock game.
Six-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt headlines the celebrity roster for tonight’s game, which also features reigning MVP comedian Kevin Hart and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who has become a...
