Will Ferrell introduces Bulls, Hornets before Wednesday's game

Will Ferrell and the Bulls go together like ... well, who knows. But funnyman Ferrell and sports go together like peanut butter and jelly.

On Wednesday night, Ferrell announced the starting lineups before the Bulls-Hornets game in New Orleans—and he added a spice of the comedy he's showed off in many a sports-related movie, such as "Semi-Pro," "Talladega Night" or "Blades of Glory."

Here's how he introduced the starting lineup for each team.


Carlos Boozer: "He still lives with his mother."

Luol Deng: "He collects rare birds and has a pet dolphin."

Joakim Noah: "He's a Scorpio and a horrible dancer."

Ronnie Brewer: "He once at 20 hot dogs in an hour."

Derrick Rose: "His favorite movie is 'The Notebook.' "


Gustavo Ayon: "He doesn't speak a lick of English but we still love him."

Trevor Ariza: "He still loves to listen to Bel Bid Devo."

Emeka Okafor: "He majored in econ but minored in love."

Marco Belinelli: "He's from Italy, but ironically he hates Italian food."

Jarrett Jack: "After basketball, His dream is to become a rodeo clown."
