San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo got a lot of attention from the Golden State Warriors cheerleaders. Garoppolo was sitting courtside for the Spurs-Warriors game on Monday night, but he also had teammates George Kittle, Kyle Juszczyk and Christian McCaffrey with him.
Even though Garoppolo wasn’t the only member of the 49ers at the Chase Center, he was the only one receiving special treatment from the Warriors’ cheerleaders.
Appearing on KNBR this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn’t the least bit surprised because he’s seen Jimmy get that type of attention before.
“It’s a normal thing. I’ve been at fundraisers with him and it’s a tough live he’s got to live,” Shanahan said with a laugh. “I’ve seen it before though so it doesn’t surprise me.”
Garoppolo was fresh off a win against the Los Angeles Chargers that got the 49ers back to within one game of the Seattle Seahawks for a tie in the NFC West.
Garoppolo had 240 passing yards on 19-of-28 passing and had a rushing touchdown. In eight games this season since he took over from an injured Trey Lance, Garoppolo threw for 1,931 yards, 11 touchdown passes and only four interceptions.
McCaffrey had 38 yards on 14 carries and four catches for 39 yards in the win. Kittle had one catch for 21 yards.
San Francisco moved to 5-4 on the season with the 22-16 win Sunday night.
