Lil Durk Basketball Video Goes Viral, Gets Props From NBA Players
Lil Durk's jump shot has always been A-1, and his latest video on social media proves it. On Thursday afternoon (March 14), the OTF chief used his Twitter account to upload a video of himself shooting straight buckets at an undisclosed basketball court. With OTF's "No Auto Durk" acting as the soundtrack of his impromptu And-1 mixtape, Durk lands every shot and attempts to break a few ankles while he flexes his skills in the paint.
"I’m the Chicago @russwest44," Durk says in his tweet with the video.
Russell Westbrook hasn't responded to Lil Durk's humorous claim yet, but other professional ballers have commented on the Chicago rapper's jump shot. Denver Nuggets guard Isaiah Thomas acknowledged Durk's game with a quick tweet ("Ok I see you") while L.A. Laker Kyle Kuzma did the same.
"Bro you easily got the best shooting form in the rap game lol I see u bruhhh @lildurk," Kuzma says in his retweet of Durk's video.
Lil Durk's love for basketball has never been a secret. Although he never played for a team in school or on a professional level, Durk has proven time and again that he's one of the better basketball players in the music industry.
Last year, the former XXL Freshman issued a challenge to a handful of rappers to play him in a game for $10,000. He called out artists who can ball like Young Scooter, YFN Lucci, PNB Rock, Snap Dogg, Tee Grizzley, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Bow Wow, Tory Lanez, Lil Yachty, Chris Brown, Lil Dicky, Quavo and Lil Pump. Of those artists, Bow Wow accepted the challenge but ended up taking an L.
