Lil Rel, famous for his roles in Get Out and Uncle Drew, joins First Take to talk about his hometown of Chicago and more specifically the Chicago Bulls. Lil Rel says that if the Bulls got the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft, he’d prefer his Bulls to take Murray State’s Ja Morant over Duke’s Zion Williamson. He says Morant is a better fit for the Bulls and adds his second hot take to the show by saying the Golden State Warriors are not a lock to make the NBA Finals because in his opinion “they don’t play defense.”
