Drake to Host First-Ever NBA Awards
Drake has just announced that he will expand is busy schedule, as he’s been tapped host the first-ever NBA Awards.
The inaugural NBA Awards on TNT will take place on Monday, June 26, at Basketball City at New York City’s Pier 36 at 9 p.m. ET, and will honor the league’s top performing players. While some categories will be added and voted on by fans, other award categories include Kia NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Most Improved Player and NBA Coach of the Year.
Obviously, Drake is a big fan of the NBA, attending games, name-dropping popular players on his songs, and hanging out with athletes. He also hosted the 2014 ESPYs, so his new hosting gig is especially fitting. Check out Drizzy’s Twitter announcement below.
