Watch RHCP's Flea Flub a Trick Shot at the Los Angeles Lakers Halftime Show
"I swear I usually drain that crazy ass behind the back through legs off hand layup!"
Published Jan 12, 2022If there's one thing Flea loves more than bass slapping, it's the Los Angeles Lakers. Over the weekend (January 9), the Red Hot Chili Peppers funkster was picked to participate in a halftime skills contest at the Lakers' game against the Memphis Grizzlies — and he went all-out and tried a trick shot.
Flea, wearing a Talen Horton-Tucker jersey and a fairly sturdy-looking KN95 mask, dribbled between a couple of obstacles and then attempted a behind-the-back and through-the-legs left-hand layup — which he flubbed. He then sunk a free throw, followed by a series of short shots. Not bad!
Flea tweeted that he was "scared to death" while out on the court. He added in an Instagram caption, "I swear I usually drain that crazy ass behind the back through legs off hand layup!"

Meanwhile, Red Hot Chili Peppers are gearing up for the release of a new album with returning guitarist John Frusciante. The lead-up to that album resulted in a couple of Exclaim!'s most-read stories of 2022.
