NEW YORK, NY — Here are some visuals of the Golden State Warriors‘ 41st NBA draft pick, Eric Paschall of Villanova. As part of informal summer work outs (pun intended!) Paschall scrimmaged among players organized by renowned NBA trainer Chris Brickley. Other players included Donovan Mitchell, Trae Young and T.J. Warren.
Also in attendance was recording artist J.Cole, whose legendary lead single “Work Out” debuted a good eight years ago. Cole incidentally went viral just the day before:
J. Cole was holding his own against Trae, Melo and JR 😈

Alas that epic, take-the-Internet-by-storm flurry of threes occurred 24 hours before Paschall’s appearance, confirmed to us by Paschall himself as part of our due diligence on this report.
Obviously, J.Cole played again the next day and was even photographed defending Paschall one-on-one.
“Not every day you get to play against one of your favorite rappers ever!” Paschall wrote in a post on Instagram.
We reached out to photographer Britnee Brand to see if she had any extra stills of the Warriors’ rookie, who by the way was recently projected by Anthony Slater of TheAthletic as one of the five players head coach Steve Kerr will have on the floor to end games in crunch time. Brand graciously donated some photographs and we re-cropped and watermarked them for use on Instagram.
