Golden State Warriors forward Kevon Looney is trying to make some money off of the court.

Right now, there are tickets on sale on EventBrite to his “signing party” in Milwaukee that are selling for up to $500. Yes, you can pay up to $500 to celebrate the Warriors forward signing a $15 million deal over three years.

I don’t know why, but this is laugh-out-loud funny to me. Last season, Looney averaged 6.3 points per game. He’s talented, but he’s not even close to being a star.

Now, the Warriors star is apparently under the belief him scoring a low level NBA deal is worth people dropping $500.

I’m not knocking the hustle, but this is so dumb. Who the hell would pay to watch a Warriors bench player sign his new deal?

It’s not like he’s Steph Curry or a certified NBA star. He’s a bench player on the Warriors. Paying for his “signing party” would be an absolute waste of money.

You might as well drive down the highway, roll the windows down and chuck it right out the window.

What an absolute joke. What an absolute circus act! I would love to see the people who actually drop cash on this event.

I would have so many questions for them. Good for Looney for trying to get more money, but I think he vastly overestimates his draw.
