Dwyane Wade had big game to shut Kevin Hart up
Dwyane Wade put together a vintage performance while leading the Miami Heat to a road win at Philadelphia in Game 2 of their playoff series on Monday night. Afterwards, Wade said he was motivated to deliver an extra special performance because he wanted to stick it to actor Kevin Hart, who is a 76ers fan.
When asked by ESPN after the game what got into him on Monday, Wade gave a simple answer: Kevin Hart.

Wade elaborated on that in his postgame news conference. This video clip even shows him staring down Allen Iverson and Hart.

“It’s a great feeling when you’re on the road and you’ve got people like Kevin Hart talking on the sideline … I heard a lot of things tonight and it’s all just used as motivation. To be able to hush a whole crowd is a great feeling. It’s an amazing feeling,” Wade said.
28 points on 11 of 16 shooting said it all. And if Kevin Hart bothered to do his homework on Wade, he would have known that talking trash to him was a bad idea.
