This year’s NBA All-Star Game Weekend included a performance from Kendrick Lamar prior to Saturday night’s Dunk Content and will feature Janelle Monáe and Pharrell will perform during tonight’s All-Star Game. Rappers Drake and Wale also made appearances during this weekend’s festivities, but for entirely different reasons.
On Friday night, rapper Wale took part in the NBA’s Celebrity All Star Game, alongside the likes of Snoop Dogg, Nick Cannon, Kevin Hart, and Michael B. Jordan.
From the very start, things didn’t go so well…
His shot was off…
As was his bounce pass…
By game’s end, Wale was even running into his own teammates.
Watch all of Wale’s “highlights” below:
Drake, meanwhile, appeared at the NBA All-Star Game Dunk Contest on Saturday night to show his support for Toronto Raptors player Terrence Ross, who won the contest last year. Drizzy helped Ross carry in his trophy.
Drake also was there to hold the ball up for Ross’ dunk.
Is it just me or did Drake gulp?
They eventually got the dunk to go in, but it wasn’t enough for Ross to take home a second straight victory.
In the future, maybe these two should just rap about basketball.
