Who said rec league basketball isn't a high stakes game never suited up in the YMCA. Gucci Mane just posted a video sample of his inventiveness on the court. Gucci Mane, standing outside the paint in a pink t-shirt, furtively waits for the ideal moment to pounce on the offensive board. As is often the case in rec league ball, tenacity wins over actual skill. Gucci Mane knows better than anyone, that to be a GOAT-level contender in any domain, one must become a student in their field of choice.

So instead of lugging up the offensive board for another half-witted shot, Gucci channels his inner-Jason Kidd to success on the offensive drive. Watch as Guwop make efficient use of his ball possession before administering a behind-the-back assist to a teammate posted beneath the basket, clearly the highest percentage shot on the floor.

In order to connect on the scoring drive, Gucci had to anticipate the bounce off the rebound, launch himself in the air, whilst coming to his decision before getting into gear.

Some things, like Gucci Mane's vision on the court, are instinctually-based. Nevertheless, I'm not pushing for Gucci Mane to try his hand at basketball at the professional level. But the clip is already a minor sensation on Instagram as of right now, and I'll be damned if it doesn't make someone chuckle from here on out. Gucci Mane is positioning himself for a cozy retirement when he decides to call it quits, no time soon.
