*The Internet has found all kinds of hilarious ways to tell Drake, “stick to rapping” after he threw an airball while warming up with the University of Kentucky basketball team.
It happened Friday night during the Wildcats intrasquad scrimmage at Big Blue Madness (their version of Midnight Madness). Clad in Kentucky warmups, Drake was shooting around with the team when this happened…the man who once claimed to be “Steph Curry with the shot” fired up an 18-foot jumper that touched neither rim nor net.
So why is Toronto-born Drake so chummy with the Wildcats?
According to Yahoo Sports, he coached one of the intrasquad teams at Big Blue Madness in 2009. He sat behind the bench during the NCAA tournament in 2010. He invited Calipari and the entire Wildcats team on stage with him during a concert in Lexington a few years ago. He credited Calipari with inspiring him to finish high school. And he received a 2012 national championship ring with the name “Drizzy” engraved in it.
The Internet didn’t care and went in immediately…probably before Drake’s airball hit the ground.
They mocked his form…
