One of hip hop’s royalty Master P makes a huge announcement. The self-made millionaire has signed with RocNation Sports.
Master P wants to coach the Pelicans
The rap legend is serious about working with his hometown team. And, by signing with one of the biggest sports agencies his dream can be realized.
Especially, since the owner Jay -Z is a fellow rap legend himself. Not to mention, both men are very savvy businessmen. In fact, Jay and Master P have a lot in common.
Both men came from humble beginnings. Both men have become successful in building their brands. More importantly, both men turned their rap careers into many business ventures.
Which has made each of them a fortune. So, it makes perfect sense to partner with Jay’s RocNation. We all remember when Jay decided to partner with the NFL.
Well, Master P has decided to do something similar with the NBA Pelicans. This is a great move for Master P. The NBA requires coaches to have a sports agent.
TMZ Sports spoke with Master P about his new endeavors. Percy Miller aka Master P told them, “Right now, I just hired a sports agent.” So, you know, to be an NBA coach, you have to have a sports agent.”
His choice for a sports agent was Raymond Brothers. Raymond is a fellow Louisiana brother who repped players from the Ball Bros (Caron Butler & Zack Randolph).
Sounds like Master P may get his wish. In addition, Master P is interested in making the Pelicans a winning team. He intends to focus on their superstar player Zion Williamson.
Who are the NBA Pelicans?
The Pelicans were formerly The New Orleans Hornets. The team is part of the league’s Western Conference Southwest Division.
The owner George Shinn relocated the team back in 2002 because of Hurricane Katrina. But the team had a temporary home in Oklahoma for a few years.
Then the team returned to New Orleans in 2007.
They are still presently holding home games in the Smoothie King Center. If you take a look at the Pelicans record they have been in the playoffs 7 times.
Also, they have 2 playoff series victories and one division title. Quite impressive, wouldn’t you say. With that said, Master P could be a welcomed coach.
Back in the day, Master P played basketball in a minor league. I was fortunate enough to see him play in Atlantic City.
I must say Master P had a wicked jump shot, in my opinion. Although, his basketball career was short-lived Master P loves the sport.
Truthfully, I think Master P can take The Pelicans to the next level. What are your thoughts?
