Master P Targeting NBA Coaching Position



Master P has been a success in music and entrepreneurship, but is now suggesting he would have success in being a coach in the NBA.

In an interview with TMZ, he said Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson and his family would be happy if the business move occurred.

This scenario has been discussed due to the New Orleans Pelicans recently firing head coach Stan Van Gundy after spending just one season with the team. Following the move, reports surfaced suggesting Pelicans power forward Zion Williamson’s family is upset with the team. Master P has experience in the NBA when he tried out for the Toronto Raptors and believes he has a good grasp of the pro league.

“I think it’s time, they gotta do something different, unique,” explained Miller, who has previous hooping experience with the Hornets and Raptors during preseason back in the 90s. “I played in the NBA, I done coached a lot of great players that are in the league. I done took my sons from being high school athletes to maybe they’ll be the next future big-time pro athletes.”

He continued stating, “If they bring me in as a head coach or assistant coach, I think I can change the game!” Back in 2017, he shared with the outlet that he was close to joining former coach Alvin Gentry’s staff, adding he would still have his job if he had brought him on. “I think he’d still have his job if he did that,” says Percy Miller.

As for the rumors surrounding Zion and his family, P adds the move would calm their concerns. “We’ll win and Zion will be happy,” P said. “Everything! I feel like it’s motivating the players and understanding them, that’s the most important thing.”

Percy Miller called his possibility of transitioning to another lane as a Tim Tebow situation, “You look at Tim Tebow, they brought him to play as a tight end because they looking at times is changing. The NBA is entertainment. I think it’s time for me to be the first hip-hop coach.”
