Drake Didn’t Look So Great While Warming Up With Kentucky’s Basketball Team

Drake’s love of both basketball and lint rollers is already well-documented, but Friday night at the University of Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness he reaffirmed his affection for both. At the annual preseason intra-squad scrimmage, as Complex points out, Mr. Nothing Was the Same showed up to pay homage to his favorite college basketball team by dressing up in full Kentucky sweats and warming up with the team. Let’s just say he appears to be significantly better at rapping, acting, and conceptualizing proprietary lint-collecting devices than he is at hitting the net. After one desperate-looking airball he comes up with a bit more of a respectable attempt, still hitting the rim, but neither of those shots compares to his turn at the player introductions, during which he lint-rolled like few have lint-rolled before. Be sure to check out footage of his warmup above and the introduction below.
