Fresh off winning the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena earlier this month, several members of the Golden State Warriors took their athletic talents across the parking lot for a celebrity softball game at the Oakland Coliseum.

Warriors center JaVale McGee hosted the charity event benefiting his #Juglife Foundation, which promotes a healthy lifestyle by encouraging everyone to drink more water.

Finals MVP Kevin Durant(and his cap), Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Zaza Pachulia, Matt Barnes, Ian Clark, Shaun Livingston and Patrick McCaw were the other Golden State players who participated in Saturday's afternoon affair. Model Amber Rose and Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch also showed off their softball skills.

Barnes, Clark and Iguodala each did their best Oakland Athletics impersonations, launching home runs over the makeshift fence in the outfield. Although their hits didn't clear the Coliseum's actual wall, it didn't matter, because the ensuing home run celebrations stole the show.

After the game -- a 19-15 victory for Green's team over McGee's team -- Lynch jokingly confronted the Warriors' defensive anchor about failing to go deep like his teammates.

McGee, who is set to become a free agent on July 1, expressed his desire to return to the Warriors during an interview amid the festivities.
