— -- Kevin Hart is "going out on top," the comedian told the crowd Friday night at Madison Square Garden, announcing his retirement from the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game after winning his fourth MVP Award.

The funnyman, 35, absolutely was the center of attention, whether he was outperforming his other celeb opponents or even taking the brunt of so many hilarious jokes aimed his way during the game.

Here's five times Hart stole the show Friday night:

1. He Scored 15 Points and Won MVP

Even though his team lost by 8, the NBA crowned Hart the Most Valuable Player of the game. After the announcement, Hart hoisted his trophy and said he was going out on top and retiring from the Celeb Game. This is his fourth MVP.

He also used his time in the spotlight to pay tribute to the late Stuart Scott, whom he considered a dear friend and died earlier this year.

2. Mo'ne Davis Takes Him to School

Hart laughed it off after 13-year-old Mo'ne Davis broke Hart's ankles (not really) in the first quarter on her way to an easy bucket. It's all in good fun.

Hart got some payback later in the game though.

3. How Tall Is Kevin Hart

During an early break, the Garden held a competition -- "Can you guess how tall Kevin Hart Is?"

Guess, what -- he's 5'4''.

4. Dave Chappelle

Comedic legend Dave Chappelle came out to root Hart on and during a break later in the game, he spoke to media, saying "Kevin, every comedian in New York is rooting for you tonight." He seemed a little sarcastic, but hey, it's Chappelle.

5. They Found Hart's Twin

During the fourth quarter, the JumboTron focused on the crowd and in true fashion, they found a little guy who looked just like Hart.

Here's to hoping Hart reconsiders retirement.
