Giannis Antetokounmpo Says Drake Looks Out of Shape
We all know that Drake is a huge basketball fan. Not only is he the ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, 2019 NBA Finals, but Drizzy also likes to play a little b-ball himself. But how good is the 6ix God?
The above question is one that was thoughtfully answered by Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was just named the NBA MVP on Monday (June 24). After being asked to judge Drake’s basketball talent, and he presented the rapper's skills and physical abilities as being a mixed bag.
In the clip of the interview, which was posted on Wednesday (June 26), Giannis watched some footage of Drake on the hardwood and was impressed with the rapper's jump shot. However, he wasn’t impressed by his physical shape.
“He looks like he’s out of shape a little bit,” Giannis said. “I don’t know if that’s because he’s on tour, because he’s on tour a lot.”
He then went on to compare Drizzy to former Boston Celtics player Brian Scalabrine. Giannis referred to him as the “Red Mamba,” which is incorrect. He was actually nicknamed the White Mamba, which is a play on Kobe Bryant’s moniker, Black Mamba.
Nevertheless, Giannis might have been getting some revenge on Drake with the put-down since the Raptors did beat the Bucks in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals back in May.
