Unlike most hoops fans, comedian Kevin Hart was not confident about the Golden State Warriors winning the NBA Finals this year. Sure, it’s tough to bet against any LeBron James-led team, but the G Dubs just had too much fire power for The King and his Cavs to compete with this year.

Most believe it was the addition of All-Star forward Kevin Durant that put the Warriors over the top to claim their second title in three years.

In his recent Instagram clip, the comic and former Men’s Fitness cover model admits that he still didn’t think the Warriors would win it, but then goes on to congratulate Durant on finally getting his first championship ring. “You deserve it. Amazing season, amazing accomplishment. I’m not taking nothing from you,” said the humbled Hart.

After choking out the congratulatory words, the Philly native moved on to the main message he had for Durant, and it was about the one person still able to whoop the MVP’s ass: his momma.

“I saw the way your mom ripped you up on that court. Momma Durant is still whoopin’ your ass. She said, ‘Look at me boy, look at me.’ Your momma was about to spank your ass. You’re still getting spankings. I know you’re getting spankings. I recognize when a motherfu*%er is getting whooped,” said the teasing Hart.

That may be the case, but in the end it’s Durant who got the last laugh as he finally made it to the NBA promised land. And if Hart were smart, he won’t bet against Durant and the Golden State Warriors any time soon.
