The Detroit Pistons have gone 20-46 this season as one of the most disappointing teams in the league.
Maybe it won’t hurt to try a 35-year-old rapper.
On Monday, the Pistons tweeted that J. Cole should “hit us for this try”:
Detroit Pistons @ DetroitPistons
. @ JColeNC we see you here. You said they only had 12 locations on the pistons. Hit us up for this essay. It’s for all dreamers @bleacherreport #Dreamville https://t.co/6K24xaI28b https://t.co/GYuG5LvqDE
The tweet comes after Master P says Sports TMZ that J. Cole is training to be an NBA player and is serious about the pursuit. As Mitchell Peters of Billboard noted, Master P signed contracts with the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors in the 1990s and knows what it takes to reach such a level far better than most people in the music business.
Master P and J. Cole also teamed up for a recent Puma ad that appears to suggest the latter is looking to make the NBA:
Basketball PUMA @PUMAHoops
ALWAYS DREAM. NEVER SLEEP. @JColeNC KNOWS. NEW DROP TOMORROW https://t.co/sFhixba2l8
J. Cole even wrote an essay for The players’ stand explaining that he gave up playing for St. John’s to become a rap star.
The Pistons could give him a chance to make his basketball dreams come true again.
