SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Will Ferrell screamed and put a hand in Klay Thompson’s face because the Golden State star lofted a baseline 3-pointer.
Good defensive shut out, little doubt.
Ferrell took the ground and warmed up with the slumping Warriors on Tuesday night time — perhaps simply what coach Steve Kerr’s workforce wanted earlier than dealing with the Los Angeles Clippers mired in a five-game shedding streak.
The comedy star donned a vintage-style headband and wearing his Jackie Moon jersey from the 2008 hoops movie Semi-Professional, a second that was meant particularly for Thompson — who dressed as Moon for Halloween three years in the past and loves the film.
Ferrell banked in a half-court shot on his second attempt to handed to Stephen Curry, even utilizing his foot to kick the basketball to the reigning scoring champ earlier than Curry knocked down a 3 to finish his pregame routine.
“I’m underneath contract,” Ferrell advised The Related Press. “So that is the very first tryout with the workforce, let’s see what occurs.”
How enjoyable was that?
“Properly, it’s what I do,” he stated matter-of-factly.
And that candy shot from half courtroom? Zero humility right here.
“I make these in my sleep.”
The Warriors and their crowd liked each minute of Ferrell’s shock look.
“That was superior,” former Warriors large man Zaza Pachulia stated. “We would have liked that power.”
Ferrell chatted up basic supervisor Bob Myers and injured star Draymond Inexperienced at midcourt earlier than making a swift exit by a Chase Middle tunnel.
When Ferrell appeared, he bent down and stretched out briefly earlier than taking a brief baseline jumper.
“Hey!” Curry hollered in delight, “You have to bounce for these!”
