Drake will host the NBA’s first-ever awards show this June. The Canadian rapper will preside over the June 26 ceremony in New York, which will be televised live on TNT. The Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Sixth Man Award, Most Improved Player and Coach of the Year will be announced during the show. The league and Turner Sports say other awards will be open to fan voting. Those categories and finalists will be announced later this week.
Are you going to rap with him? Stephen Curry: No, no. I’m going to stay in my lane. Do you and Drake talk about dealing with haters? Stephen Curry: Yeah, we talk about that all the time. That’s a whole other conversation. Just the expectations and the similarities to the rap game and the NBA. It is nice to hear that other people are dealing with some of the same things you do.
