The drama happened during the playoffs, where every move matters. Hart, a huge basketball enthusiast, was there supporting his team against the Celtics. His friendly jabs at Celtics fans turned serious. Tensions rose, and so did the game’s intensity. Hart thrived until the game’s flow and the crowd’s mood shifted.

Kevin Hart remembered when he couldn’t resist talking sh*t and that cost him against the Boston Celtics:

Go to Boston Celtics we blowing them out, killing them. I'm talking to Celtics fans, Shut up!, Boston sucks!. I'm going at it they booing me... The game keeps getting closer and closer... They came back, got the lead... It got to the point where I was like I don't feel safe... It's like 6 minutes left in the fourth quarter I go to get up walk out whole arena was yelling, F*ck Kevin Hart!

Hart’s wake-up call arrived with under six minutes in the fourth quarter. As he made his way out, the arena erupted in a chorus of boos, a tangible sign of how the once playful heckling had turned the crowd against him. This led him to pause attending playoff games, driven by worries for his safety and a touch of superstition.
