The picture of Ron Baker dressed up as Jake from State Farm (with a headset and all) at a Halloween party in New York was funny enough.

Then videos started surfacing on New York Knicks teammate Tim Hardaway Jr.’s Instagram story of Baker delighting the crowd by dancing to the viral hit “Juju on That Beat” blasting from the speakers.

It’s safe to say, the former Shocker won the dance-off among NBA players on Halloween. And he even got a shoutout from the Jake from State Farm Twitter account on Thursday.

Baker signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Knicks this offseason. Baker played in New York’s first three games of the season, averaging 3.7 points and 3.7 assists in 16 minutes, but has sat out the last four games due to an ankle injury.
