Drake will be featured prominently when the NBA All-Star Game hits hometown Toronto this weekend.

They say that rappers want to be athletes and athletes want to be rappers. For no one is this axiom more true than Drake.

Drake loves all sports, but his favorite sport is basketball. He even installed a regulation basketball hoop in the bedroom of his $7.7 million Hidden Hills, CA mansion. He takes basketball very seriously. He is not terrible at basketball, but he is not particularly good either. In lieu of any semblance of basketball talent, Drake seeks to ingratiate himself among the basketball elite. This strategy has produced some embarrassing moments (for Drake). But ultimately these moments are endearing, for we are all Drake, aspiring basketball legends seeking acceptance in the basketball community.

Oh grow the fuck up would you? - Nobody ever
