Drake Jokes About Winning The Meek Mill Diss Track Battle In Newly Surfaced Video!

Ouch.

It’s no secret that Drake and Meek Mill have been wrapped up in a diss track battle recently, but if you ask one of the rappers, there’s not even a competition!

Drake was taking part in a pick-up kickball game on Friday where he may or may not have thrown some shade at Nicki Minaj‘s main squeeze.

When one fan asked Drake if he was prepared to lose the game to fellow kickballer LeBron James, his response could not have been better!

It’s pretty clear he’s referencing Meek, but just in case you don’t believe us…

Ch-ch-check out the shady moment and decide for yourself (below)!!!

The Basketball Tournament 2015: Winner, Reaction to $1M Prize Money Championship

It’s the type of event typically only seen in sports movies. A bunch athletes with nothing to lose and everything to gain all playing for a winner-take-all $1 million prize. You lose, you get nothing. You win, you reap the financial reward and perhaps a chance to rejuvenate your career.

On Sunday, Overseas Elite gave itself that opportunity.      

Former St. John’s star D.J. Kennedy scored 24 points, and Errick McCollum II added 15 as Overseas Elite defeated Team 23, 67-65, to win the 2015 Basketball Tournament.

SportsCenter provided a photo of the team with the check:

In tune with how the entire event played out, Overseas Elite’s victory came down to the final seconds. Ahead by four at one point, Kennedy missed one of two free throws at two different points down the stretch to give Team 23 a chance to win. Unfortunately, Zach Andrews did not get his game-tying jumper off in time, and the team filled with former collegiate stars rushed to center court in celebration. 

Founded just last year, The Basketball Tournament has already garnered quite the following. Prize money already doubled from the inaugural $500,000, a move that coincided with a more than doubling field of teams. Team 23 and Overseas Elite each had to run through six games before making it to Sunday’s championship, something that added a bit of a pride factor to the overall prize. 

“You have to stay focused; you can’t think of the money,” Overseas Elite guard Travis Bader, who owns the all-time NCAA lead in threes made, told Desmond Conner of the Hartford Courant. “That makes people nervous. You’ll get to the free-throw line and start missing free throws and things like that, and you get tight. You have to take itas another game. It’s a game on ESPN, another opportunity for guys to get exposure, another opportunity to have some fun, and if we win some money out of it, cool.”

Sunday’s final was a perfect example of how competitive the tournament’s environment was.

As Overseas Elite was beginning to wind down the final seconds, the two sides nearly came to blows at center court when Myck Kabongo threw an elbow into the face of Team 23’s Andrew Kelly. Officials conferred with the video evidence and decided to avoid giving Kabongo a technical foul—a move that could have shifted the game’s outcome.

Overseas Elite team maintained a consistent lead through most of the game, but it was never able to put the game away entirely. Team 23 consistently chipped away, staying within striking distance at all times while getting quite a few solid individual contributions.

Davin White, who threw Team 23 on his back for nearly the entire tournament, finished with a game-high 34 points. Consistently hot from long range throughout, White kept it going in the championship to cap off a breakout few weeks. BBallBreakdown’s Twitter feed highlighted a, erm, breakdown in Team 23’s strategy, as it didn’t get him the ball for the final shot:

White, 33, is among the many Basketball Tournament stars getting perhaps their biggest shot at the limelight. A former Cal State Northridge star who went undrafted in 2005, White has carved out a decadelong overseas career that’s seen him bounce all over the world. Given his advanced age, it’s unlikely any NBA team would be willing to give him a shot—this may be the last time he gets to play on the nationally televised stage.

Still, White found a fan in Haralabos Voulgaris:

Even if it doesn’t result in an NBA opportunity, this has been a coming-out party for White. He led a team seeded 13th in its own bracket to the overall championship game of an event that featured swaths of former NBA stars, some legends and a number of top overseas guys.

“What makes it so special…is TBT (as a whole). You guys make us feel special, we feel safe here, it’s just that sense of energy,” White said, per Zachary Holden of the DePaulia. “There’s a positive energy when we come here and play.”

The same can be said for many of the Overseas Elite. Kennedy hasn’t had an NBA shot since a brief cup of coffee with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2012. Kabongo, a 23-year-old former McDonald’s All-American, has been toiling in the D-League for three years. Point guard Paris Horne, another St. John’s alum, hasn’t touched an NBA floor as he approaches his 28th birthday.

So even if Team 23 went home empty-handed from a cash perspective, none of the players in the championship is lacking for exposure. We’ll have to see if any of them gets a legitimate chance of living out his NBA dream.

Joey Logano, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. were all inside the top five in the final five laps when they ran out of fuel. Busch failed in his bid to become the ninth driver since 1972 and the first since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 to win four straight Cup races.
