Drake and Reggie Miller are really extremely good at playing ping-pong, or table tennis. It showed as the duo challenged each other for a game before the All-Star game on Sunday.
The Toronto-based artist was defeated by the former Indiana Pacers shooting guard. Both the gentlemen sweat it out by playing some good table tennis. However, it was Miller who narrowly edged past Drake, two games to one.
The 29-year-old rapper Drake rose to fame after his successful single “Best I Ever Had”. He also sang to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment.
The 50-year-old Miller played his entire 18-year NBA career with the Pacers. Hi No. 31 jersey was retired as a tribute by the Pacers. He currently works as an NBA commentator for TNT.
The showdown between the two was set up two weeks ago when Miller sent out a challenge to the Canadian based rapper Drake.
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 is a huge admirer of the Ping-Pong game. This was proved more when he received a gold Ping-Pong paddle for a gift on his birthday last year.
With the NBA All-Star game set to happen in Toronto, it was even more justified for the table tennis match to happen.
The game was not at all a friendly in which two celebrities play against each other to kill a few minutes before the start of the All-Star game. Both the players went hard against each other and each point lost and won were exerted with passion.
Here is the video of the match between the two. Just looking at the video will be enough for the viewers to understand the passion and dedication involved in the game.
