It has become quite a tradition to conduct the annual 3-point contest and skills challenge at halftime of all-star games. This is not the first time Flea participated in a basketball competition as in the ‘90s, he made six consecutive 3-pointers on the court.
This incident occurred during an MTV-hosted celebrity basketball competition dubbed “Rock N’ Jock”, where he posted a photo on Instagram of his turn in the court, accompanied by the caption, “I’m just saying. I made 6 in a row and won that s*it, didn’t even need to shoot the last one. Tell me something good.”
Lakers had a tough time playing the Grizzlies as the former suffered a big time defeat. It was interesting to see their biggest fans following them on the court for that game during halftime. However, the Lakers weren’t able to keep up with Grizzlies, facing a disappointing loss with the scoreline showing 119-127.
