WATCH: Drake goes full Shaqtin a Fool with botched Stephen Curry attempt
Drake may be one of the top rappers in the game today, but he clearly isn’t the best ballplayer around. While he’s a huge fan of the NBA, that doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s good at actually playing the sport.
A clip of Drizzy playing 1-on-1 against fellow Canadian rapper Tory Lanez is currently making its rounds on social media, and it isn’t exactly because of Drake’s exceptional basketball skills. The Grammy Award-winning hip-hop icon attempted an audacious triple in Stephen Curry territory and it resulted in a hilarious Shaqtin a Fool moment (h/t My Mixtapez on Twitter):

Drake has been around Steph enough to appreciate the Golden State Warriors star’s unrivaled style of play. He probably thought he’d give it a shot–literally–but it did not end well for Drake. Instead, he missed the rim by a good distance. It seems that the 34-year-old rapper immediately regretted his decision after he realized how badly he airballed that shot.
It’s a good thing we’re currently in the offseason. Otherwise, Shaq would have probably included this moment into his weekly slate of Shaqtin’ a Fool moments. Drake could even be in contention for Shaqtin MVP with this one.
To be fair, we didn’t see the entire video. Drake could have dominated the 1-on-1 contest, but unfortunately for him, the clip that has gone viral does not exactly show his best side.
