Former Ohio State Buckeyes guard Aaron Craft is trying to earn his stripes with the Golden State Warriors, and after what the team put him through at its open practice in Oakland on Thursday night, he deserves a medal for bravery.

Continuing what is fast becoming a league-wide tradition, Craft performed karaoke, donning a teddy bear hat and gloves for the experience and singing a reworked version of the Miley Cyrus smash hit "Party in the U.S.A."

Forcing him to do it without any musical accompaniment has to violate the league's CBA and possibly even the Geneva Convention. Here's hoping he keeps his day job because a singing career is definitely not in his future.
