It all started with a tweet.

Earlier this year, fans of Drake joked online about how Drizzy would find a way to rhyme with Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo stunned the nation and led his team to an NBA title, while also taking home the Finals MVP award. The dominant play from Antetokounmpo assured that his name would start popping up in rap songs. Drake name drops Giannis in “7am on Bridle Path,” rapping, “Could at least keep it a buck like Antetokounmpo. I made north of the border like Vito Rizzuto.”
“Drake working Antetokounmpo into a line gonna be tricky but he’ll figure out something,” tweeted one fan. ESPN took a screenshot of the tweet and reposted it on Instagram with the caption, “Leave it to Aubrey to find a way.” The amount of support ESPN is showing Drake is kind of odd by the way. Nonetheless, Drizzy pulled up into the comment section to reply, “Only did it cause of this tweet.”
Fans also pointed out the Kanye also has a Giannis line on Donda. Do you think Kanye or Drake has the better Antetokounmpo line?
