Will Ferrell introduces the New Orleans Hornets at Wednesday's game

February 9, 2012 | 11:15 am

In what could be considered the NBA's version of a tragic comedy, Will Ferrell introduced the Hornets before Wednesday's game.

The Hornets have the second-worst record in the league at 4-22 and went on to lose to the Bulls, 90-67, but at least the team's fans had a pregame chuckle.

Here's what the comedian said about the players.

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

Trevor Ariza: "He still loves to listen to Bell Biv DeVoe [an R&B group that branched off from New Edition]."

Emeka Okafor: "He majored in Econ but he minored in love."

Marco Belinelli: "He hates Italian food."

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

Speaking of basketball and comedy, remember when Metta World Peace decided to try his luck at making people laugh (intentionally) by hosting comedy shows during the lockout?

In case you missed it, here's the clip below.

Perhaps World Peace could try his routine before a Lakers game?!?
