Jersey Shore's Vinny had a dream: to be the MVP of the 2012 NBA All-Star celebrity game. Vin did play on Friday, but he failed to snag the coveted title.

Instead, fans voted for comedian Kevin Hart, despite the fact (or maybe because of it) that he was ejected from the game a few minutes before it ended.

At only 5'2", Kevin definitely stood out, and his constant interaction with his fans in the audience made him an instant favorite.

Sorry, Vin. We guess your hours spent practicing the game would have been better used perfecting your comedic charm.

Catch the macaroni rascals on a new episode of Jersey Shore on Thursday, March 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
