He had no idea the West team would take the game so seriously.
Five-foot-2 comedian Kevin Hart took most valuable player honors in leading the West to a 58-38 win over the Bolt and the East on Friday night.
Afterward the Jamaican sprinter says he was surprised by the intensity of the West team coached by Houston All-Star James Harden. Bolt says, "We got beat bad, but their team was much more serious."
Bolt did show his athleticism a few times, most notably on a two-handed dunk in the first half.
Hart challenged Bolt to a race during a timeout where the pair each had to dribble and make two layups, and shocked the crowd by winning.
