Master P Wants Pelicans Job, To Be NBA’s First ‘Hip-Hop’ Coach: ‘We’ll Win And Zion Will Be Happy’ Master P is campaigning for the head coach job with the New Orleans Pelicans. P spoke with TMZ saying, “They gotta do something different, unique. 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 because [of] what I know as basketball. 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. I coached DeMar DeRozan, a lot of great players.” Master P played professional basketball with the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors. He’s also a native of New Orleans and argues that he would be able to connect the players with the community.  “We’ll win with Zion and be happy, [playoffs] and everything. I feel like it’s motivating the players and understanding them,” says P. He’s also up for taking the assistant coach position and “work his way up.” Chauncy Billups is a runner-up for the head coaching position and Master P says he has an advantage coming from New Orleans.  Do you think Master P would be a good fit as the Pelicans head coach?
