ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — In the video above, actor/entertainer/producer Mark Wahlberg sits down with Bulls.com to talk about what a big Bulls fan he is. He prefaces this by noting his love for the Celtics (he is originally from Boston, after all), and he is wearing a Lob City t-shirt while doing the interview, but still, hey, this guy loves the Bulls, OK?
We then see Wahlberg and his crew get into a 2-on-2 game with Bulls forward Jimmy Butler. A few things worth noting:
No. 1: Wahlberg seems to have a pretty good jumper. Sure, this could all be CGI’d or whatever, but from what we see, he drills a few long threes.
No. 2.: These guys are playing full-court 2-on-2?
Worth noting, Wahlberg has a long history with basketball. Check the end of the below, where we flash-back to see Wahlberg firing up jumpers in the TNT studio. As Charles Barkley says, “As a basketball player, you’re a great actor!”
