Warriors' Willie Cauley-Stein Details How Passion for Art Drives Him

"They're not even looking at your eyes, they're looking at the tattoos on your face."

Warriors center Willie Cauley-Stein wants to be known for more than just his high-flying exploits on the basketball court or his array of body ink.

In a recent conversation with The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears, Cauley-Stein opened up about his passion for art and how it has stimulated his on-court play.

"The stigma on me was like ‘He cares about art way more than he cares about basketball,'" Cauley-Stein said. "But to me it was like, the art was fueling basketball.

"If I was to paint a picture right before a game, I was probably gonna go off that game."

The big man has been an integral part of the Warriors this season. Nagging injuries have left Cauley-Stein as the lone healthy center on Golden State's roster.

But whenever his NBA career ends, it looks like Willie has another talent to fall back on.
