Drake Shows Off Basketball Skills While Hooping at his Toronto Mansion
Grammy Award-winning artist, and gaming-industry exec (thanks to Stake.us deal) Drake is an avid fan of all things hoops. He's a diehard Toronto Raptors fan and is also the global ambassador for the team. He's rubbed shoulders with some of the NBA's elite like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James.
Curry and Thompson are preparing for the NBA Finals after they swept the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday night (get in on the action at Michigan online casino sites with free play like BetMGM.)
His activity on the court has been on display throughout the years as well. One of his more notable moments came in 2014 when he shot an airball while warming up with the Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team. He was also seen throwing another “nothing but air” shot in a 1-on-1 game against fellow Canada musician Tory Lanez in 2021.
It looks like the "6 God" has improved his abilities immensely since. On Tuesday, Drake's friend and content creator, Smilez, posted a compilation of videos to his Instagram story showing the "Certified Lover Boy" artist cashing in on multiple jump shots. From fadeaways to 3-point shots, it looked like everything was falling for the 35-year-old musician.
He was playing in a pickup game at his Kobe Bryant-themed court located in his Toronto mansion.
Smilez even mentioned Golden State Warriors stars Curry and Klay Thompson in a clip of Drake draining a 3-ball. According to Smilez, he and the Canadian-born rapper are in the same league in terms of shot-making from 3-point land.
