I was definitely in Vegas with MJ and Charles Barkley. I'm at the roulette table with Charles, he doing good. He up like $600k. MJ walks in, grab a bunch of Charles' chips and walk off.

To make the most of the occasion, Hart had All-Star Jalen Brunson, former WNBA All-Star Chiney Ogwumike, as well as NBA Champions Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion as guests. Hart even made Nowitzki react hilariously to Luka Doncic‘s achievements with the Dallas Mavericks.

He brought in his close friend Cedric The Entertainer to throw some comic relief into the coverage. And did he did that brilliantly by revealing how hilarious some of the greats of the sport were.
