Juan Toscano-Anderson is in his second season playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors.

He was mic'd up during a recent practice in Surf City, and had a lot to say about the two NFL teams in the Bay Area.

"I'm a Raider fan, so I learn to bet with my mind and not with my heart," he explained. "Because those guys let me down every Sunday. Being a Raider fan is like being in a toxic relationship. But you know what -- I'm still going to root for them.

"Being a Niner fan is the worst thing on planet Earth. I feel bad for anybody who's a Niners fan."

The Golden State Warriors' organization loves Toscano-Anderson.

The 26-year-old -- who grew up in Oakland rooting for the Dubs -- not only suited up for the Warriors' 2019 Summer League squad, but he was with Golden State during training camp a couple of months ago, and appeared in five preseason games.

In 16 minutes against the Lakers on Oct. 16, the 6-foot-6 forward showed off his terrific defensive skills by recording two steals and three blocks.

Through 19 G League games this season, Toscano-Anderson is averaging 12.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals, while shooting 49 percent from the field.

He's extremely versatile and will dunk on you.
