The former Sacramento Kings player turned assistant player development coach threw out the first pitch for the Giants' Triple-A affiliate Sacramento River Cats recently, and well ...

He bounced it and it went way outside (or inside to a lefty batter). He also lost his sunglasses. Clearly, there was a lot going on.

And despite the way the pitch went, the torment wasn't over. Harry Giles, Buddy Hield and Kyle Guy all made sure to chime in after witnessing the display, and they weren't too nice about it. 

It's not as easy as it looks, folks.
