Sheck Wes reveals that he's officially eligible to be drafted in the NBA, reflecting on his journey in a celebratory Instagram post.
The rapper recently took to Instagram to announce that he is officially eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft, reflecting on his journey in an extensive and humble post. "Damn... it’s really real, The 2020 NBA DRAFT, "All my life I always wanted to follow my passion for music and basketball. Playing basketball and going to play pro in the @nba is something that I always strived for. Tonight that dream comes true!"
"I want to thank the @nba for their hard work with the growing the game and every team that gave me an opportunity to work out and talk with them," he continues, though he doesn't specify which squads those were. "I also want to thank my team and my fans for always being there! TUNE IN TO THE 2020 NBA DRAFT tonight !!!!" Given the potentially monumental career pivot that would occur should Sheck indeed be drafted, many fans were appropriately stunned by the revelation. At this time, only one other rapper has ever played in the NBA -- that would be Percy "Master P" Miller, who played pre-season games for both the Charlotte Hornets and the Toronto Raptors in 1998 and 1999 respectively.
With the 2020 NBA Draft set to air tonight, we will see if Sheck Wes, real name Khadimou Rassoul Cheikh Fall, finds himself making the cut. Congrats to Sheck on this major accomplishment.
Just trying to keep the world updated one story at a time!
