The final guest was quite the special appearance. Superstar rapper J. Cole, and Curry’s good friend who also is from North Carolina, jumped on Curry’s IG Live. While his latest album, The Off-Season, recently dropped, J. Cole also is played basketball professionally in the Basketball Africa League for Patriots BBC. The team just finished shootaround when J. Cole connected with Curry. “What I would do to have practice tomorrow,” Curry joked.
Rapper J. Cole made his debut with the Patriots Basketball Club on Sunday and held his own on the court in the Basketball Africa League. Cole, whose real name is Jermaine Cole, finished with three points, three rebounds and two assists in just under 18 minutes of action as the Patriots, who are based in Kigali, Rwanda, took on the Rivers Hoopers Basketball Club. His first points came on a putback layup off of a miss by Steve Hagumintwari in the final minute of the first quarter.
After leading the Wizards to a win over the Cavs on Friday, which secured them a spot in the play-in tournament, Westbrook was asked about being mentioned by J. Cole, who is one of the most decorated rappers in the game. It turns out the respect is mutual. “J. Cole, I’m a huge fan of his music. I’m a huge fan of him as a person more than anything. He’s one of the greats in the hip-hop space,” Westbrook said. “To be able to be mentioned on his songs and thought of, it’s something as a kid you always think about, hoping you can get named in a song. So, to be able to have that, especially on this album, is pretty cool I must say.”
Taylor Rooks: Just spoke to @jamorant about his @JColeNC mention on #TheOffSeason “I was at home sitting at the kitchen table and yelled ‘hold up. I gotta run that back’ 🤣” Says he’s already listened to the song about 5 times and loves the album
