Chasing history is hard work, and the Golden State Warriors have been grinding of late, on a mission to surpass the winning record of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. Currently at 68-7, best in the NBA, they need to win at least 5 of their last 7 games to achieve their goal. But April Fools’ Day is here, which means it’s time for some fun.

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala thought it would be a neat idea to pull a mean prank on backup center Festus Ezeli. The vet teamed up with Lyft to set Ezeli up with a car ride, during which a fake radio show broadcast the news that the Warriors planned to release Ezeli. Adding insult to injury, Iguodala had other teammates text Ezeli telling him it had been a pleasure working with him.
After watching Ezeli worry long enough, last year’s Finals MVP came out of the car behind him and gave him some balloons and cake. Of course Ezeli threw the cake at Iguodala. Can you blame him?
Watch the funny prank in the video below.
