The Toronto Raptors Stars Rate Drake & J. Cole's Basketball Skills

When they’re not in the studio, Drake and J. Cole play basketball frequently. Several Toronto Raptors players were asked what they thought of the two rap gods’ basketball abilities.

Even if a majority on the court favored Cole since he has experience playing professionally, Drizzy serving as the brand’s official ambassador may have influenced other players to support the 6 God.

“He’s actually one of the artists that really knows how to play basketball,” said 2022 Rookie of the Year winner Scottie Barnes of the Dreamville boss.

Fred Van Vleet, a talented guard, added: “[J. Cole] can play a little bit. You get what I’m saying? Obviously not professionally. Drake is merely an elderly YMCA game. He simply moves differently from a basketball player.

When asked why he would choose Cole over Drizzy in a hypothetical one-on-one match, guard Gary Trent Jr. responded, “J. Cole moving really fluid so I’ma have to go with Cole.”

However, the majority of Raptors players are supporting Drake, the local idol, in the booth.
