Drake and Reggie Miller have two things in common: Their love for basketball and we are now learning, their love for ping pong.

If there is anything Drake learned from his short lived romance with Serena Williams, it would be a good back stroke. Ok, we aren’t really sure if Drizzy picked up any advice from Williams, but if he did, the rapper will surely use the tennis pro’s tips during his upcoming ping pong match against former NBA player, Reggie Miller.

During next weekend’s NBA All-Star weekend in Drizzy’s hometown of Toronto, the two will go head to head in a challenge that was initially brought on by Miller.

On Thursday, the TNT game analyst posted on Twitter that he heard Drake is “a master ping pong player” and challenged the rapper to a match. To that, Drake happily accepted.

“Master is a bit of a stretch,” he tweeted Friday morning. “But then again you have to stretch before everything works out. So yes Reginald … its a go!”

Reggie followed up with one last tweet confirming the match and even threw subtle shade by quoting lyrics by the Toronto rapper.

“So Ping Pong is on!! Last name Ever, first name Greatest,” he wrote. “See you in the 6 , have to go dust off my paddle my friend. Good luck.”

No word on when or where the game will go down, but this could turn out to be the most entertaining event of All-Star weekend.

‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism

Published

It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.

For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.

“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.

He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”

James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”

That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”

Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
