Colin Ward-Henninger, who is an NBA reporter for CBS Sports, should feel pretty honored. He was mistaken (hopefully jokingly) for the San Francisco 49ers' star quarterback with a GQ look – Jimmy Garoppolo.

Who said Ward-Henninger looked like Garoppolo? Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. The humorous moment took place during a post-game press conference following the Warriors' victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.

Ward-Henninger asked Kerr a game-related question and the coach responded by saying, "I'm sorry, I'm a little rattled. I thought you were Jimmy Garoppolo for a second."

Garoppolo has become a famous face in the Bay Area since his trade from the New England Patriots to the 49ers in late-October. He will only gain more popularity once the team secures him as its long-term quarterback. San Francisco is expected to either use the franchise tag on Garoppolo before March 6 or sign him to a multi-year deal.

With Garoppolo as the starting quarterback, the 49ers won each of their final five games in 2017, which included three-straight victories against playoff-bound opponents to close out the season. The team finished the season with a 6-10 record after losing its first nine games.
