While warming up with the University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball team at the program’s opening practice on Friday (October 17), Drake was filmed shooting an airball by ESPN cameras on-hand. Poking fun at the miss, Kevin Hart took to his Instagram account to taunt the rapper with a video of the attempt overlaid with Drake’s own recent lyrical brag about being “Steph Curry with the shot.”
Hart’s Instagram post, which ends with a short clip of his own stand-up material, includes hashtags like #WhyIsHeInFulluniform, #CanadaHatesThatHeDidThis, and, #DrakeMakesBadDecisions.
Drake followed up shortly after with an Instagram post of his own, using an image of Hart’s face to make excuses for the miss. Including a list of hashtags himself, Drake replaced his Steph Curry brag from “0 to 100” with a reference to Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, a player with a perceived jump shot handicap.
In June, Kevin Hart used Instagram as a platform to similarly clown 50 Cent for his botched opening pitch at a New York Mets game in May.
