Kevin Hart And The Plastic Cup Boyz To Host ‘Manningcast’-Style Broadcast For NBA In-Season Tournament

Posted Dec 6, 2023

Kevin Hart is taking a leaf out of Peyton and Eli Manning’s playbook.

The comedian is to host a Manningcast-style alternate broadcast for the NBA’s new in-season tournament. NBA Unplugged with Kevin Hart, which comes from Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions and Hart’s own Hartbeat, will air on ESPN2 on December 9

Hart will host alongside the Plastic Cup Boyz: Joey Wells, Will Horton, and Na’im Lynn with special guest appearances from athletes and celebrities, much like the Manningcast has for the NFL.

After the In-Season Tournament Championship Game broadcast, seven episodes will air throughout the season tied to marquee NBA games on ESPN platforms including the New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers in January and Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat in April.

Hart has previously appeared on the Manningcast where the brothers mocked Hart for his height and Hart retorted that the Mannings actually hate each other.

Hartbeat is behind series such as Cold As Balls and produced an Olympics Highlights show featuring Snoop Dogg. Omaha is behind docuseries such as Quarterback in addition to Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli (the official title of Manningcast).

The NBA In-Season Tournament, which began in early November, is a cup-style competition that saw all 30 teams participate with the semifinals and championship game played in Las Vegas.

It will be won by one of the Boston Celtics, Indiana Pacers, New Orlean Pelicans, Sacremento Kings, New York Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, or LA Lakers as those teams are in the quarterfinals, which take place on December 4 and 5.
