For a bloke shorter than most 13-year-olds, Kevin Hart sure does love his basketball.

The world-famous comedian, who is a ferocious Philadelphia 76ers fan, showed off his dunking skills in an Instagram video.

The catch? The hoop was about half as tall as a regulation NBA hoop, news.com.au reports.

"Dominated my little girl in 1 on 1 today. Showed her no mercy. P.S haters will say that the hoop isn't regulation ..... I GOT BUNNIES PEOPLE," Hart wrote.

The video attracted over 1.8 million views in two hours with celebrities around the world playfully ribbing the 39-year-old.

"Is that a 6ft ring... hah legend," Australia's Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins commented.

A host of fans also commented laughing at the 1.6m star nearly being dwarfed by his daughter.

Hart's presence in the NBA world is ongoing. Just last week he called out rapper Drake over for his actions while supporting the Raptors on their way to the 2018/19 finals.

Hart ran into trouble during the 2018 NBA Playoffs when he unleashed a verbal tirade in the direction of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade in game two of the first round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

A diehard Sixers fan, Hart continued to bark at Wade but it was the veteran who had the last laugh as he led his team to the win on the road.

Ever since that stoush Hart has kept a lid on it and even stayed away from the Sixers' current playoff run after a fan petition asked him to steer clear of home games.

But an appearance on Live with Ryan and Kelly brought up the subject of Drake, who's Raptors eliminated Hart's 76ers in the second round.

With tongue in cheek, Hart called out Drake for not paying up on bets and then slammed him for reverse jinxing the Sixers.

"(Drake) wanted to bet on the series and I didn't because he doesn't pay," Hart said. "I think my frustrations from the past is probably what brought some of the negativity into this series. If I had a bet, we probably would have won. Because I didn't bet, he reversed me. He hit me with a reverse-woo."

"You know what's bad," Hart continued. "I didn't even go to the series. I didn't go to no games because I'm so superstitious. I went to games last year and then we lost to Boston.

"He wore our team shorts because he's a jerk.

"He put the reverse on himself because everybody was saying whoever he roots for loses. I should have done the same thing, I should have put on a Toronto Raptors uniform and I didn't. I let my city down. I let my city down."

Hart continued his rant with an expletive outburst that was bleeped out by the TV's broadcaster.
