Drake and Reggie Miller battled it out during a game of “6-pong” after Drizzy was challenged by Miller earlier in the month, and the entire game was captured on video. Highlights of this match up were played at the beginning of the All Star Celebrity Game between Team Canada and Team USA, and the video is online for anyone who missed it. Miller was chosen to be a commenter for the All Star Game, and the challenge was issued once Miller found out about Drake’s prowess with a ping pong paddle.
Drake accepted the challenge through social media and the match was on. The video includes commentary from both players, and fans can see that Drizzy started out strong as the game started. Miller soon eliminated the lead that Drake had, and went on to have a terrific comeback. Once Drake saw the film footage of the final point being made the Canadian rapper from Toronto commented that “This is it. This is the most devastating moment of the last few years for me.” If losing a ping pong game is the worst that has happened to Drake in recent years he should consider himself blessed.
The recent All Star Game will be the final one for Kobe Bryant, and Drake decided t pay tribute to the NBA star by wearing an OVO branded jacket which carried the text message Farewell Mamba placed along the skyline of Toronto. The jacket also prominently features the Los Angeles Lakers player with his yellow jersey and the well known number 24.
This tribute is no surprise since Drake is much more than just a popular rapper. Drizzy is the Toronto Raptors brand ambassador, and he is well known in the professional basketball world. The 2016 NBA All Star Game was held at the Air Canada Centre, and this is not Drake’s first time as a coach because he was also a coach for the Team World celebrity game as well. The jacket looked awesome however Kobe did not do as well when he was guarded by LeBron James.
Drake is being challenged a lot these days, and the Canadian rapper shouldn’t expect the challenges to stop any time soon. The latest challenge that Drake s facing is a ping pong mastery competition against the legend of the NBA Reggie Miller. Once Miller found out that Drizzy is supposed to be a master at Ping Pong the challenge had to be issued, and Drake saw an offer that he could not turn down so he accepted.
Drake’s response to the challenge was the simple statement “Master is a bit of a stretch.” It must be difficult for Drake to be humble and admit that he may not always be not be the best at anything that he attempts. Remember the Sprite commercial that Drizzy made, with the slogan “Last name ‘ever,’ first name ‘greatest’”? This commercial was created before Drake ever had a best selling album or top hit song and yet his confidence was over the top. Over the weekend Drake is taking part in the NBA All-Star Festivities being held in Toronto, and Drizzy is the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game coach for the Canadian team.
Drake attended the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game last night and here are some photos. Both Drake and Magic Johnson were coaches of a team at the game. Makes you think of the Best I Ever Had music video, right? I see you Drizzy rockin’ the Sprite bottle!
