Drake is involved in the most exciting showdown of All-Star weekend, and it ain't on the hardwood.
Those who follow Drake on Instagram are well aware of his love for ping pong, as well as the rather impressive level of skill he brings to the table. As this year's NBA All-Star weekend takes place in Toronto, another table tennis enthusiast, Reggie Miller, who will be announcing the All-Star Game for TNT, is looking to set up a match with the 6's hometown hero.
Miller made the challenge today on Twitter, writing, "my peeps say @Drake is a master ping pong player, maybe he's up for a match." That was enough to elicit Drake's attention, as he soon accepted Miller's request for a one-on-one game, while downplaying his own reputation as a "master." "So yes Reginald," Drake responded on Twitter. "It's a go!"
Working on my NBA All-Star plans and my peeps say @Drake is a master ping pong player, maybe he's up for a match 😏🤔🙏🏿..— Reggie Miller (@ReggieMillerTNT) February 4, 2016
Master is a bit of a stretch. But then again you have to stretch before everything works out. So yes Reginald @ReggieMillerTNT... its a go!— Drizzy (@Drake) February 4, 2016
TNT would be wise to televise the matchup between Drake and Miller, though before that, the network will have to decide on a table that doesn't give Drake an overwhelming home court advantage. Those tuning in to the All-Star weekend festivities, beginning on February 12, will also get to see Drake as the coach of the Canadian celebrity team, who will go against an American group of famous faces led by Kevin Hart.
The weekend culminates with the NBA All-Star Game, which will be shown live on Sunday, February 14 at 8:30 PM on TNT.
