Drake is not afraid of challenges it seems.
The singer of the famous Hotline Bling song is gearing up to be a Ping Pong player.
Yes, yes, you read that right.
The singer apparently is a big fan of Ping Pong and regularly plays the game. Even during his studio breaks, Drake never fails to practice the game.
Drake regularly posts video of his game and probably that is why he has a new challenge now.
On Thursday, TNT NBA analyst and Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller challenged Drake to a game of Ping Pong, reports FOX Sports. The time couldn’t be more appropriate for Miller will be in Toronto next weekend to cover the 2016 All-Star Weekend.
Miller posted the challenge on Twitter. He wrote: “Working on my NBA All-Star plans and my peeps say @Drake is a master ping pong player, maybe he’s up for a match.”
Drake hardly tweets. But this time he could hardly control himself from not tweeting. The singer immediately responded and accepted the challenge.
Referring to Miller by his given name, Reginald, Drake posted: “Master is a bit of a stretch. But then again you have to stretch before everything works out. So yes Reginald @ReggieMillerTNT… its a go!”
We haven’t seen Miller’s game yet but if and when the match happens, it sure is going to be an interesting one. Judging by Drake’s Instagram videos, we can definitely say that the Toronto Raptors’ global ambassador knows his game really well.
If the videos itself is not enough, then hold your breath for the singer is infact obsessed with Ping Pong.
He even has his own special gold-plated paddle. The paddle has inscriptions of folded hands and number 6 engraved on it.
Drake however, has an advantage for the game will be played in his hometown of Toronto. But the fact cannot be ignored that Miller who is a former elite player has the advantage of height by his side. At 6-foot-7 with a longer wingspan, Miller stands tall than Drake.
