Will Ferrell causes mayhem at Pelicans game

VIDEO: Anchorman 2

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We know Will Ferrell is an NBA fan — see the video above from last year where I talked basketball with Ferrell and his Anchorman 2 co-stars. And we’ve also seen him through the years at NBA games in cities where he’s filming movies.

So it wasn’t a surprise that Ferrell turned up at last night’s Lakers/Pelicans game in New Orleans, where he’s in town with co-star Mark Wahlberg filming the movie Daddy’s Home. But what was a surprise was at halftime, when Ferrell came onto the court and filmed a scene where he pegs a cheerleader in the face with a basketball and then gets carried off the floor by fake security guards.

Mark Wahlberg Vs. Jimmy Butler


ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — In the video above, actor/entertainer/producer Mark Wahlberg sits down with 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!”

Shaq and Charles Barkley Have A Bench Press Contest

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night on “Inside the NBA,” Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal had a bench press contest in conjunction with the release of the new film Pain and Gain. The Lift Off, as it was dubbed, included two celebrity coaches: Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the stars of Pain and Gain.

In many ways, it was the classic case of the unstoppable force against the immovable object: Barkley, the undersized, powerful power forward, going up against Shaq Diesel, the strongest player of his generation, and perhaps of all-time.

Who was the strongest of them all? The answer might surprise you. Check the video below…
