Drake’s gotten a lot of praise for his music but when it comes to basketball, he’s been the victim of many jokes.
First, there’s his fickle loyalty when it comes to rooting for teams. "Bandwagoner" is a term that comes to mind. Then, there’s the infamous air ball he put up during warm-ups at University of Kentucky’s Midnight Madness game. The Toronto rapper’s also gotten numerous colleges in trouble for taking pictures with student athletes, which violates NCAA rules regarding fair competition in recruiting.
Forget all that though, Drizzy’s here to turn his basketball career around. Late last night (August 24) he posted a video on Instagram of him making a shot, but it wasn’t any shot. Drake made a crazy basket while sitting down on the half court logo at the Atlanta Hawks practice facility.
Relieved that he could silence a lot of his haters, he quickly stood up and stared down the camera as if to say, “What now!?” Some haters are going to want more proof that Drake’s got game. What do you think?
Check out Drake making the half-court shot below.
