A few weeks back Lil B boldly announced on Twitter than he planned to try out for the Golden State Warriors and it turns out that he was serious about it…sort of. This weekend the Bay Area rapper actually tried out for the Warrior’s D-league affiliate known as the Santa Cruz Warriors, and thankfully the local news was there to capture some of it.
The tryouts were held at Aptos High School in California, where a confident Lil B told NBC’s KSBW via Fader, “Just putting my skills to the test. Supporting Bay Area teams and, you know, spreading that love.”
Video footage from the tryouts, plus comments from the Santa Cruz Warriors GM Kirk Lacob made it immediately clear that the changes of making the team were very slim, but the session was open to anyone willing to pay $100 including a 76-year-old man.
Either way, Lil B had a really good time and that’s all that matters. “At the nba warriors tryouts right now just did a interview for the news, love to the whole golden state warriors staff i love yall,” he wrote on Sunday (October 14)
