Drake Rumors

Given the positive reception he received at the ESPYs three years ago, Toronto Raptors global ambassador Drake is looking to give hosting another shot. The Toronto-based rapper announced on John Calipari’s podcast that he will be producing and hosting the league’s brand new NBA awards show held on June 26 in New York. “I’m actually producing and hosting the first annual NBA Awards this year,” Drake said on “Cal Cast.” “I get to take the reigns on it.”
Drake is producing and hosting the first-ever NBA Awards later this year, he revealed Thursday. The rapper-actor shared the news during an interview on University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari’s Cal Cast podcast. Nodding to his 2014 stint hosting the ESPY Awards, Drake said he anticipated having a similar freedom in helming the forthcoming trophy show. “I don’t even know if I’m allowed to say this,” Drake said before giving Coach Cal the scoop. “We’ll find out.”
In it, Drake detailed why he chose the Warriors for ‘Drake Night,’ saying he wanted a competitive game, but also a chance to talk smack to the Golden State players, who he considers friends. “Me and Steph are like family. Me and KD are like family. Great friends with Draymond. Same with Klay,” Drake said. “These are the nights where we just say whatever needs to be said and then we’ll put it all behind us after the game.”
