While Ken Jeong is known for bringing laughter, the Denver Nuggets supporters gave him a taste of his own medicine on Thursday night during Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
The star of "The Hangover" and "Community" was spotted at courtside during the Nuggets-Miami Heat matchup. When a timeout was announced, Jeong seized the opportunity to head to half court, trying his luck at a few shots while a packed arena watched on.
Jeong appeared confident as he secured the ball and positioned himself at halfcourt. However, the shots he put up were a disaster.
Both of his attempts did not get anywhere near the hoop and gave the audience a great way to laugh their way through the time out.
Oh no, Ken Jeong ?

Even "Rocky the Mountain Lion," the Nuggets' mascot, attempted to assist Jeong, signaling for a backward throw.
This technique proved fruitful for Rocky, who executed a halfcourt shot with precision, making it in before Jeong's attempts.
Had Jeong been cheering for the Heat, the Nuggets' fans would have undoubtedly been more vocal in their taunts. However, he was squarely in the Nuggets' corner, receiving VIP treatment from the team.
Jeong graced the team's social media page before the game, sharing his supportive words for the franchise on its Finals battle with Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat. Coupled with courtside seats and halfcourt shots, the Nuggets' 104-93 triumph made the evening a memorable night for the actor.
Nevertheless, in future visits to Ball Arena, he should leave the basketball shots to the actual basketball players.
