While some sports (NFL) continue to take a hit, others sports like the NBA are more popular than ever as the NBA continues to make a ton of cash. And while I don’t believe the hilarious incident below is responsible for the massive popularity of the sport, it certainly doesn’t hurt.
Tony Roberts, who is a pretty hilarious comedian with over 30k Twitter fans, decided that he would hop on the court during pre-game warmups at a Pelicans game and just warm up with the NBA players. Hell, someone even passes him a ball thinking he’s part of the team.
Pelicans Fan Sneaks Onto Court And Actually Warms Up With Team
Check out the video below:

It’s pretty amazing that he actually got to spend that much time on the court before anyone noticed, so kudos to Roberts for having the courage to do that.
