“Does Drakereally have Warriors players playing basketball at his house?”
That’s the question that many NBA fans asked back in January after Drizzy rapped about “Golden State running practice at my house” on his song, “Summer Sixteen.” And as it turns out, the answer to that question is…yes. Drake has had at least one Warriors player—the best Warriors players, in fact—“running practice” at his house in the past.
During a recent interview with Cabral “Cabbie” Richards—the same guy who did this great Kobe Bryant interview earlier this year—Steph Curry was asked to clarify Drake’s "Summer Sixteen" lyric. And he admitted that, while he’s never played against Drake at his house, he has played against Ayesha Curry’s brother Jaz Alexander at the OVO estate.
“That’s got some real-life aspect to it,” he said. “Me and my brother-in-law, I was playing 1-on-1 with him at Drake’s house. [Drake and his friends] were watching. They didn’t really shoot that much that day, but my brother-in-law got all that work. It was me and my brother-in-law with Drake and his boys and some of my family in the stands.”
Drake told this same story during an interview with CSN Bay Area at NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto—“Steph comes and hoops at the house,” he said, “he plays Jaz a lot”—but it’s interesting to hear Curry confirm it. Check out the clip above to hear what Curry had to say about playing ball at Drake's house.
