Over the weekend Lil B, a.k.a. Brandon McCartney, tried out for the Golden State Warriors NBDL team, the Santa Cruz Warriors. The Warriors held open tryouts for the cost $100 to anyone who wanted a shot.
Lil B gave a little bit of his time to speak with NBC KSBW 8 about his experience stating he was “putting my skills to the test and supporting Bay Area teams and spreading that love. ”
Even though the 5 foot 10 inch rapper may not be signing his name on any NBA contracts anytime soon, Kirk Lacob (Assistant General Manager of the NBA Warriors, and G.M. of the D-League affiliate) said in a statement to ridiculousupside.com, “Lil B was one of 68 people who showed up for our open tryouts at Aptos High in Santa Cruz County on Sunday. We love holding open tryouts because we have the opportunity to discover diamonds in the rough, and engage with people who are passionate about sports and willing to put themselves out there to chase their dreams. Lil B was a total team player; he was very respectful of our coaching staff and thrilled about being a part of what we – the Warriors – are creating in Santa Cruz. Since he’s from Berkeley, he said he was happy to support Bay Area teams, and we were happy to have him!”
