Drake, a Grammy Award-winning artist, is a hoop enthusiast. He is a die-hard Toronto Raptors fan and is also the team’s global ambassador. He rubbed shoulders with some of the NBA’s elite like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and LeBron James.
His activity in the field has also manifested itself over the years. One of his most defining moments came in 2014 when he fired an airball while warming up with the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team. He was also seen airlift another shot in a 1-on-1 match against fellow Canadian and musical artist Tory Lanez in 2021.
It seems that the “God 6” has improved his abilities enormously since then.
On Tuesday, Drake’s friend and content creator, Smilez, posted a compilation of videos to his Instagram story showing the “Certified Lover Boy” artist taking multiple jumps. From fadeaways to 3-point shots, it seemed like everything was falling for the 35-year-old musician. He was playing in a pick-up game at his Kobe Bryant-themed court located at his Toronto mansion.
Drake goes to his bag of tricks, hitting jumpers and hard 3-pointers in a pickup game at his Toronto home.
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 shooting from 3-point field.
Curry and Thompson are gearing up for a potential sweep against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, so Drake can witness a more outstanding lineup from the Splash Bros.
