Kevin Hart had his game face on while doing interviews on the red carpet before the 2016 NBA Celebrity All-Star basketball game in Toronto. The actor and captain of Team USA had few words of encouragement for his friend and coach of Team Canada, Drake. Insisting he won't be listening to the rapper's music because it's "too negative," the comedian revealed that his pre-game music will be by another Canadian icon. "Heavy Justin Bieber today because he's positive." The Hollywood star didn't even break his focus to congratulate his friend on being honoured with the key to the city of Toronto. "It's not a real key. They are giving him a fake key. I've seen keys and his key opens nothing up," he told reporters.
While the Ride Along 2 star was joking around on the red carpet, the caliber of celebrity players was nothing to laugh at. Tennis stars Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard joined fellow Canadian stars like Arcade Fire's Win Butler and NBA stars Rick Fox and Tracy McGrady on the very tall Canadian team. In fact, height was the homegrown team's secret weapon. "Our team is really big. I think Drake's plan is to have us dominate in the key," Property Brothers' star and team member Drew Scott told Hello!. His brother Jonathan added, "[Team USA] is going to be looking up at us the whole time."
In the end Drake and company came out on top, winning the game 76-64. The 7,000-strong crowd was thrilled to see the home team pull out a win and the "Hotline Bling" singer was proud to have coached his squad to victory. Before making nice with a defeated Kevin, he called out the actor for putting on a uniform and "thinking he was a star player who disappointed everybody." "I'm asthmatic," quipped the star, "My body is breaking down!"
Jason Sudeikis played a strong game for the American side but his attention was often swayed away from the court thanks to the presence of his fiancée Olivia Wilde, who cheered on the actor from the front row. The adorable couple are celebrating Valentine's Day weekend in Toronto. Other celebrities in the crowd included Vin Diesel, J.B. Smooth and director Spike Lee.
