Josh Hart and Team NBA beat Team NFL in SLAM Call of Duty tourney

New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart is passionate about Call of Duty.

Hart competed in SLAM’s sixth Call of Duty: Modern Warfare tournament Saturday, and he had to express his emotions — after all, his undefeated record was on the line.

In a video that’s gone viral, Hart smashed his keyboard after a bout of frustration over the game. Despite the close series, though, Hart’s record remained flawless. He and Team NBA defeated Team NFL, 4-3, coming back from a 3-1 series deficit.

The keyboard suffered defeat when the Hart and Team NBA were at their lowest.

The two teams were playing Search and Destroy on the map Hackney Yard, and it was the fourth game of the series. Team NFL had been up 2-1 in the tourney, and the NBA squad needed a win. Team NFL went on to win Search and Destroy, 6-4, and took a commanding 3-1 lead.

Though it resulted in a loss, the match was one of Hart’s best of the series. He had nine kills, the second-highest on the team behind Golden State Warriors rookie Eric Paschall.

The rest of the NBA team included Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell and Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine. Team NFL included Cleveland Browns receiver Jarvis Landry and Browns running back Kareem Hunt. In addition, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds competed, along with Denver Broncos receiver Courtland Sutton.

Hart was an important part of Team NBA’s comeback. During Capture the Flag on Rammaza, he finished with 18 kills and tallied a capture.

The hoopers won Capture the Flag, 4-1, and then Hart had another good performance in Game 6 of the series, a game of Headquarters on Crash. Hart had 19 kills and two captures, along with a team-high two defends. Team NBA won, 200-33, on Headquarters.

With Hart keeping his perfect record intact, even through some adversity, he’s shown he’s one of the most reliable and consistent Call of Duty players in the NBA.
