The Golden State Warriors are adding 3 players to the competition for the last roster spot on a lineup that could make history. One of those players is Phil Pressey.

After graduating from the University of Missouri, Pressey wasn’t drafted in 2013 and has since bounced around the NBA and D-League. He played in 75 games with the Boston Celtics as a rookie in 2013-2014, but has played in less and less games each season since then. He played in 14 games last season for the Philadelphia 76ers, but was waived in December.

For his career, he’s shooting just 34.1% from the field and 25.4% from 3-point range. On a positive note, he does average 7.7 assists per game for his career.

Pressey, in my opinion, is probably the least likely to get the spot but, as we all know, anything can happen.

NBA MVP LeBron James says he needed help getting to the Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z concert Friday night at Sun Life Stadium. The Miami Heat star posted a video of him saying that he was following a police escort on the wrong side of the street to get to the concert. The eight-second video showed James’ vehicle behind cars with police lights flashing, as oncoming traffic allowed them to pass. Traffic around the area was backed up because of the concert.
