OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Warriors' Andre Iguodala, along with the ride-sharing company Lyft, played an April Fool's prank on Festus Ezeli.
In the prank, Ezeli was in a Lyft car when he heard a report over the radio with a report saying, "Two sources close to the Warriors say that backup center Festus Ezeli will be released from his contract before the playoff run. That's it - no more Festus."
Ezeli has a stunned look on his face as Warriors players begin to text him saying they were sorry to hear the news.
Then the driver says, "I feel kind of awkward right now."
Iguodala calls Ezeli saying, "Hey, I heard you got cut from the team. I'm going to try to get to the bottom of this."
In the end Iguodala meets Ezeli on an Oakland street, with blue and gold balloons in hand. Iguodala said “April Fools” as he gave Ezeli a cake, which is promptly thrown back at him.
