Adam Sandler was a golf prodigy in “Happy Gilmore” and a football star in “The Waterboy.” But the actor and comedian might want to consider a role on the basketball court in the future.

Sandler, who performed at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Monday night, stopped by the Zions Bank Basketball Campus before his show to hang out with the Utah Jazz and shoot some hoops.

Sandler took photos with Jazzmen Raul Neto and Georges Niang.

Mitchell also left impressed with Sandler’s skills on the court.
