Actor Ken Jeong attempted two half court shots during a timeout at the Denver Nuggets-Miami Heat game in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Both shots missed the hoop, but the crowd found it amusing. The Nuggets’ mascot, “Rocky the Mountain Lion,” tried to help Jeong by motioning to throw it backwards, which worked for the mascot when he made a half court shot. Jeong was shown support by the Nuggets franchise, appearing on their social media page before the game to give words of encouragement. Despite the experience, Jeong should stick to the sidelines instead of attempting more wild shots.
Actor Ken Jeong was in attendance at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat. Jeong, known for his roles in “The Hangover” and “Community,” was seen courtside during the game and attempted a couple of half-court shots during a timeout.
Jeong appeared determined as he squatted down at half court, but unfortunately, his shots did not reach the hoop. The sold-out crowd chuckled through his quick performance before the timeout ended. Even the Nuggets’ mascot, “Rocky the Mountain Lion,” tried to help Jeong by motioning to throw the ball backward.
It worked out for Rocky, who launched a half-court shot in that manner and swished it before Jeong got his tries. Nuggets fans would have really been jeering Jeong if he was rooting for the Heat, but he was all for the Nuggets, as he got the royal treatment from the franchise.
Jeong appeared on the Nuggets’ social media page before the game, giving his words of encouragement to the franchise in its first-ever Finals game. Half-court shots and courtside seats to a Nuggets’ 104-93 victory were the perfect experience for the actor. However, next time he heads to Ball Arena, or any arena for that matter, he should stick to the sidelines instead of trying some more wild shots.
Perhaps he just has to listen to the mascot after all.
Jeong is known for his comedy and loves to make people laugh, but the Denver Nuggets fans did not find his half-court shots amusing. Despite the jeers, Jeong seemed to have had a great time at the game, and his support for the Nuggets was evident.
It is not uncommon for celebrities to attend basketball games, especially during the NBA Finals. However, not many attempt half-court shots in front of a sold-out crowd. Jeong’s attempt may not have been successful, but it certainly added to the entertainment value of the game.
To put the last piece of the puzzle in place, Ken Jeong’s appearance at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat was memorable, even if it was for his failed half-court shots. Fans will surely remember the actor’s attempt for years to come, and Jeong will likely stick to the sidelines during future basketball games.
To finish on a strong point, Ken Jeong’s attempt at half-court shots during a timeout at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat was met with jeers from the crowd. Despite the unsuccessful attempts, Jeong’s support for the Nuggets was evident, and his appearance added to the entertainment value of the game. Next time, however, he should stick to the sidelines and leave the half-court shots to the professionals.
