Celtics legend Bill Russell trolls Kevin Hart on Twitter after Celebrity All-Star starters announced
Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell has taken to Twitter to troll Kevin Hart, one of the mainstays in the NBA All-Star Game the past few years.
After the All-Star starters were announced today along with the celebrity hosts, Russell made sure to call out the comedic actor on Twitter.

The old man is looking good on this post and he wants everyone to know about it, not just Hart. And that shirt he is wearing appears to be Russell’s way of sending a message that he can still eat eggs and bacon for breakfast because he works out.
It’s hard to tell what prompted the 11-time NBA champion to pinpoint Hart for this post but it could have something to do with a tweet that he posted six years ago that Russell never forgot.
Bill Russell should not be allowed to come outside anymore……..he is the definition of black history month lmao

Russell is turning 84 years old this February, but he is probably the most active Twitter user at that age that anyone has seen. He will be attending All-Star Weekend as a special guest, as the Hall of Fame center takes part in many of the festivities.
Hart, Pharrell Williams, and N.E.R.D. were announced as the hosts for this All-Star Game entertainment on February 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
According to NBA.com, “Hart and special guests will take the All-Star stage for an exciting opening and an entertaining introduction of the All-Star teams.”
As for Hart’s basketball skills, he is a four-time MVP of the Celebrity All-Star Game. Perhaps Russell, a 12-time All-Star, would like to take Hart one-on-one at some point in this year’s event. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see how Hart responds to Russell’s tweet.
