Drake is going to make the first ever NBA Awards a night to remember.
Back in November, we announced that on June 26th, the NBA will be putting on their first ever awards show. As revealed today in Drake's interview with Kentucky coach John Calipari, Aubrey Graham will be hosting and producing that historic event. Calipari was praising Drake's perfromance as host of the 2014 ESPYs, and the 6God used it as a segway to announce his NBA Awards hosting duty.
Here's what Drizzy had to say about the topic:
"In light of the ESPYs, I don't even know if I'm allowed to say this yet, we'll find out, but I'll say it anyways - I'm actually producing and hosting the first annual NBA Awards this year ... Yeah, I pray you [John Calipari] came come, it's only right. I get to take the reins on it - the ESPYs let me do great things, and I thank them a lot for that - usually awards shows are a bit restricted, but they let me do a lot at the ESPYs. [At the NBA Awards] We'll just expand on that concept. I love hosting. I love being in a room full of iconic legendary people that I look up to, and having that pressure to make them laugh, and enjoy their evening, so hopefully that'll go well."
