Will Ferrell was given the privilege of announcing the starting lineups for tonight’s 80s-themed Bulls-Hornets game in New Orleans and, to no surprise, he rose to the occasion like a dolphin at SeaWorld.
Take your pick. They were all great, but here are my top five, in no particular order of hilarity:
“At center, No. 13, he’s a Scorpio and a horrible dancer, Joakim Noah”
“At guard, No. 11, he once ate 20 hot dogs in an hour, Ronnie Brewer”
“At guard, No. 1, his favorite movie is The Notebook, Derrick Rose”
“At forward, 6’10 from Mexico, he doesn’t speak a lick of English but we still love him, Gustavo Ayon”
“At guard, 6’3 from Georgia Tech, after basketball his dream is to become a rodeo clown, Jarrett Jack”
It was difficult to judge Chicago’s reaction based on the camera work, but Hornets forward Emeka Okafor clearly appreciated the humor. Sadly, according to my source, Trevor Ariza believes the commissioner’s office will fine him a whopping chunk of change if he’s ever caught smiling.
