The New Orleans Pelicans won’t replace DeMarcus Cousins with a misfiring fan any time soon.
A Pelicans fan sneaked onto the court, stretched and took a warmup shot Sunday night at Smoothie King Center prior to the team’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The fan was dressed in Pelicans warmup gear and was sitting courtside when he made his move. Only a police officer kept him from pursuing his hoop dreams further.
The fan, who outed himself as comedian Tony T. Roberts, slipped onto the court in an apparent prank.
Don’t try this on your home courts, NBA fans. Leave the shooting to the professionals.
