J. Cole Rumors

Magic guard Terrence Ross was in the practice facility watching Cole and his teammates play and saw it all unfold. Ross offered the play-by-play on his podcast of the sequence in which Cole splashed a game-winning 3-pointer over Wagner. There was one game, he hadn’t really done much but somebody was driving to the hole and they drove to his corner and the dude off of him, which was Franz Wagner, pulls off and they swing it to J. Cole in the corner. Franz runs at him, he was trying to block it and goes up there. Bro, J.Cole for game! Splash! A guy that can shoot like that from the corner is always reliable.People were like, ‘Oh!’ I mean, it was J. Cole. He just splashed Franz Wagner for game. It was cool, though.
Clutch Points: Every player J. Cole mentioned in his latest album, from Steph Curry to LeBron James, is no longer in the playoffs. Guess he called it ‘The Off-Season’ for a reason 🤣 pic.twitter.com/gdpYMv0J8H

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.
