VIDEO: Will Ferrell Livens Up NBA Game With Absurd Introduction
Introducing Wednesday night's starting lineups between the New Orleans Hornets and the visiting Chicago Bulls was none other than comedian Will Ferrell, who is in New Orleans shooting Dog Fight with fellow Funny or Die contributor Zack Galifianakis.
Ferrell added his own comic spin to his lively introduction, poking absurd fun at the players as they ran out onto the court, reports The Washington Post. "At forward, No. 5 — he still lives with his mother — Carlos Boozer," Ferrell announced for the Bulls player. NCAA champ Joakim Noah received the following jab from the Semi-Pro funnyman: "He's a Scorpio and a horrible dancer."
Perhaps the worst sting went to Trevor Ariza of New Orleans. "At forward, 6'8" from UCLA, he still loves to listen to Bell Biv DeVoe!" Ferrell said, while saying of other players, "He doesn't speak a lick of English," and, "After retirement he wants to be a rodeo clown."
