Drake Talks Lebron’s Decision, Skylar Diggins And His Plans For The ESPY’s

Drake - September 24, 2013

Drake will be hosting on ESPN next Wednesday at 9pm EST, but recently, Drake held a teleconference with media in order to discuss the ESPY’s and different topics surrounding sports. Catch some of the excerpts below.

On Lebron James decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers:

“I think in the past week and a half I’ve been bothering LeBron as much as the press has. I’ve been trying to figure out what his decision was going to be, we were all extremely intrigued by what stage of his life he’s in. I don’t think that there’s a better way to deal with it than what he just did, I think if you gave away and award at the ESPYs for incredible essay writing, I would love to present that to him.
I think that what he just did is patriotic in its own way; courageous, and to me it’s going to be one of the most historic things of our generation. I’m glad that I got to–no pun intended–witness this moment. I woke up kind of late today, so I’m just catching up, but I cant wait to get off this call and call him myself and tell him how proud of him because he’s been a friend of mine for a long time.”

On Skylar Diggins:

Background Story: Drake has posted various pictures of WNBA player Skylar Diggins on his Instagram. He also recently posted a picture of himself wearing a shirt with her name on it prompting a lot of “hate”. OB set the record straight via Instagram and said that Drake is simply a fan of how she plays the game.

“I’ve never met Skylar, I’m sure it’ll be extremely awkward when i do. I guess if she manages to show up, though she probably won’t because her boyfriend will try and throw a chair. I probably owe her an apology off the bat. I don’t want to give away material, I have a whole section for Skylar, but i don’t know if she’ll be able to take it.”

On tennis star Nick Kyrgios “dissing him”:

Background story behind the diss: Earlier this month, 19-year-old Australian tennis prodigy Nick Kyrgios blamed his near-loss to Jiri Vesely at Wimbledon on listening to Drake before the first set. “I came out really flat, so hopefully I won’t listen to that again! It was actually Drake. Didn’t do the job for me.”  – Nick

“I also want to meet this guy that says that he lost because he listened to my music. I also want to meet that guy and look him in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man and size him up and then chop him right down. Nick whatever-his-name-is — ’cause he didn’t win, so that’s how he’s going to be remembered: “Nick whatever-his-name-is.” – Drake

On being a supposed “bandwagon fan”:

“Well, first of all, I’d like to say that despite what everyone on the Internet thinks, I do not team jump. In the past I’ve always supported the player and not the institution—unless we’re talking about the Kentucky Wildcats and the Toronto Raptors; I will never stray from them. But whether it comes to soccer or football or basketball, I have a lot of friends that play for a lot of teams. I’m not team jumping. I’m a supportive friend.”

“Of course, I’m gonna go watch games in Cleveland. If not for LeBron—who I said is a brother to me, we’ve got three kids from Toronto on one team, plus Manziel who is part of our family and our brother. I definitely have to look into some real estate in Cleveland and spend some months of the year out there. Like I said, my teams will always forever be who they are but I will support the group who has shifted to Cleveland.”

“For Cleveland, a place that I’ve been to time and time again when I’ve been to touring, it’s gonna be great for them, I’d love to see them grow.”

On doing impressions during the ESPY’s:

“I’m actually excited to say that I definitely have incorporated impressions in my performance and that they’re something I take pride in and study for. I love finding and getting into character, especially if I know the person. So yes, I will be doing impressions. And they’re good.”

Drake Reflects On His First Performance At S.O.B In New York

Back in 2009 Drake performed at New York’s S.O.B’s. XXL got an interview with Drake, and he reflected on his past performance at S.O.B’s

“When I was at S.O.B.’s, it was a lot of nerves, I was nervous. Not only that, but it just had so much pressure behind the show. Not only that, but I had no band. I had no sense of what makes a great performance. Being able to watch Wayne for the last couple of years, then going out with Jay to Europe, watching Trey [Songz] grow, watching just the people around me grow performance-wise, I’ve gotten better and more comfortable,” Drake explained. “That’s the key. You feeling comfortable so the room feels comfortable.”

Check out the performance videos after the jump.
