Comedian Kevin Hart wanted Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green—now he's got him.
Hart, a four-time NBA All-Star Celebrity Game MVP, took to Twitter last week to let everyone know that he wanted to go head-to-head with an NBA player in a three-point shootout. No, not Stephen Curry. Not LeBron James. Not Kevin Durant.
In a game of one-on-one, the 5'4" Hart would be at a serious disadvantage against the 6'7" Green. However, the actor believes he can take the professional hoopster in a shooting contest.

You think Green—a 41.9-percent shooter from downtown this season—was going to back down? Not a chance.
A few days later, the two kept going at it, with plenty of (friendly) shots being fired:

Green took things a step further, saying he'd be willing to shoot left-handed against Hart. And that's not all he had to say in this video provided by Foot Locker:
There's certainly been plenty of talking between Hart and Green on social media. With the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend beginning Friday in Toronto, they will have the perfect opportunity to settle the score.
