Drake’s hilarious tribute to James

Among the many celebrities who wished well to the 19x NBA All-Star in the video, Drake’s part was probably the most fun to watch. In an extended version of Drake’s segment, the millionaire rapper could be seen standing in a basketball court as he dubbed the event a “legendary night in NBA history”. He then proceeded to suggest that he was in LeBron James’ hometown of Akron.

“You’re breaking the all-time scoring record. And to honor that, I had to come back to the place that it all started… Akron, Ohio,” Drake said.

Drake’s speech gets interrupted when the ‘basketball court’ collapses. The court is then revealed to be a green screen, exposing the club behind it in the process. With the cat out of the bag, Drake then confesses that he lied and that he was in fact in a club in Miami. Drake then concludes the video by asking the girls in the background to congratulate the new scoring leader.
