J. Cole Might Have Actually Tried Out For The Detroit Pistons


Recommended Posts

The Detroit Pistons extended an invitation for multi-platinum recording artist J. Cole to try out for their team back in August 2020, and it seems as though the rapper might have finally taken the offer.

Generally, wherever Ibrahim "Ib" Hamad goes, J. Cole isn't too far behind. The rapper's manager recently revealed that he was present at the Detroit Pistons' training facility, sharing a photo from their state-of-the-art headquarters. Alongside seven others, Ibrahim Hamad was welcomed by the team, thanking the organization for their hospitality directly following their meeting. Cole's name was not on the banner addressing his manager, but the sheer presence of Ib at the Pistons' facility has brought back speculation that the North Carolina-based rapper could be planning a move to the NBA.

Considering the team previously offered Cole a tryout for their team, it's possible that they might be in preliminary talks to welcome him on their roster for next year. Of course, this could also be unrelated to Cole's own basketball aspirations as Ib might be representing somebody else or working on some alternate business with the squad.

Recently, Snoop Dogg pitched a hip-hop basketball game on Instagram, which would include J. Cole. Perhaps we'll see that get a date so we can check out even more of the NBA hopeful's game.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
