Lil B For President

The world's most positive human tries out for the NBA.

Everybody just needs to calm down and listen to Lil B. He is constantly saying things like:

and

and even Tyler is not immune to this infectious positivity:

Arguably the world's most positive human, Lil B attended NBA tryouts over the weekend. Specifically for the Santa Cruz Warriors, a team in the NBA Development League (or, the D League). So it wasn't exactly for the LA Lakers or whoever Shaquille O'Neil or Lamar Odom play for (this is the extent of my American basketball knowledge) but this news segment, filmed at the tryouts, is sure to warm your cold withered heart. Not only for the rapper's infectious positive-thinking ("Just putting my skills to the test, supporting Bay Area teams, and spreading that love") but also for the 76-year-old man for whom attending the tryouts was the final item on his bucket list.

Watch Lil B at the tryouts and read our interview with him from Oyster #101. And if you're not into Obama or Romney at this year's presidential election, make sure you write the name Brandon McCartney on your ballot paper instead.
