Jimmy Garoppolo was given a standing ovation by the Golden State Warriors when the 49ers quarterback and his teammates took the court at the Chase Center for Monday’s game against the Spurs.
At one point during the game, NBC cameras captured Warriors cheerleaders waving at NFL players as they walked off the field — as they appeared to separate Garoppolo. NBA fans gathered to shake hands with the QB, who was all smiles one day after the Niners beat the Chargers 22-16 at home.
