iHeartRadio reported live from the first ever NBA Awards hosted by Drake and spoke to some celebs at the star-studded event! One of the famous faces we caught up with rapper G-Eazy

"I'm extremely excited to be here. I'm sitting with the Warriors, so that's an honor," the MC told us about his favorite NBA team winning the 2017 championship. "It was an exciting season, obviously for them and the whole bay. It's incredible." He continued: "Growing up a Warriors fan and just seeing what it's become right now, it's an exciting time to be alive."

When we asked the artist/basketball fan what he did to celebrate with the team, he said: "I went to Vegas with them. I was with Klay [Thompson] on his float. He was like, 'You've got to come to Vegas with us, with the team,' and we just kept the party going for a few days. It was nice."

G-Eazy was also happy to see Drake host the first NBA Awards, too. "As he should [host]. It sounds perfect." He also said that he would gladly perform at the show next, if asked. "Absolutely, I would love to. It would be an honor," he said.

iHeartRadio then asked the Cali rapper which NBA athlete he would like to collaborate with if they ventured off into the rap industry. "Damian Lillard [of the Portland Trail Blazers]. Yeah, he's from Oakland, too. He's actually a really good rapper. Respect to Dam."
