As far as we know, Kevin Hart’s upcoming comedy with Ice Cube, Ride Along, has nothing to do with basketball. It’s about a mouthy little security guard (Hart) trying to prove himself to his brother-in-law (Cube), a cop in Atlanta.
But this trailer is absolutely stocked with NBA stars, including Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and a Kobe cameo.
As he raps about his wish to be a formidable figure on the basketball court, Hart delivers this classic rhyme: “I wish I was a little bit taller
I wish I was a balla
I wish I could throw it down like Andre Iguodala.”
What does this fantasy have to do with Ride Along? Maybe nothing. But that’s one of the perks of being one of Hollywood’s hottest stars, as Hart is: You can pick up the phone and get anyone you want for a play date.
