North Philly-born comedian Kevin Hart announced today on Twitter that he'll be taking part in the NBA celebrity all-star game, which is hilarious considering he's about 5'2". But he's also a big basketball fan (check out this video of Hart and his crew taking on the UConn women's basketball team, but be careful of the language, it's rated R).

As Roderick "Mr. Rod" Millwood, owner of Hart's old stomping grounds the Laff House at Second and South, told us, Hart is "short, but he's big in stature."

Here are the other celebs participating: R&B star Ne-Yo, rapper J. Cole, rapper Common, comedian JB Smoove, "Jersey Shore's" Vinny Guadagnino, "The Voice's" Javier Colon, "Property Brothers'" Drew and Jonathan Scott, "Grey's Anatomy's" Jesse Williams, ESPN's Doug Gottleib and basketball players Mitch Richmond, Penny Hardaway, Nick Anderson and Tamika Catchings. 

The celeb all-star game airs Fri., February 24 at 7 p.m. on ESPN. Hart recently appeared in the indie movie "Exit Strategy."
