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 @ReggieMillerTNT… 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 @Drake, 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.
