Fastbreak on the carpet: Semi-Pro Premiere

What red carpet would have a basketball court and hot cheerleaders? "Semi-Pro" took that court last Tuesday night at the Mann's Village Theater in the Westwood area of Los Angeles. Along the aqua-green carpet streamed the stars as they made a fast break through the area.

"Semi-Pro" stars Will Ferrell as Jackie Moon, a one-hit wonder who uses the profits from the success of his chart-topping song "Love Me Sexy" to achieve his dream of owning a basketball team, "The Flint Michigan Tropics." However, the Tropics, is the worst team in the league and may fold when the ABA announces its plans to merge with the NBA. Jackie must figure out a way to keep his hoop dreams alive.

As his hoop dreams must be kept alive, Will Ferrell showed his shooting prowess on the carpet with a swoosh into the makeshift basketball hoop. Other stars including Andre Benjamin and Andy Richter took their turn in making the shots while the sexy Tropics girls cheered and watched on.
