21 Savage Ops Not to Try Hard
I came to investigate a few things. First, is 21 Savage good at basketball? Is he a good teammate? Do his rap boasts match his on-court performance? And does he ever change his facial expression? Or maybe I wanted to merely take 2,100 pictures of 21 Savage. Whatever the point, enjoy the photos of an underwhelming basketball performance below.
Right out the gate, he is onto me:
His free throw shot looks….decent:
Well, everyone makes a face on the toilet, and he is in a dumping position.
Thoughtfully taking it all in or regretting his decision to play?
Possible underwear bunching situation (we’ve all been there) or something else?
Flanked by the lesser Antetokounmpo brothers, heading back onto the court.
Driving to the hoop.
…And he loses control of the ball while Janelle Monae awaits the pass that never arrives.
Goes for a three…clank.
Oh. It’s a gotta be a bunching problem, right?
Back to the bench with a look of relief. Bunching issue solved?
Jumper with a quick, one-handed unbunching.
Strategy during the timeout.
He spotted something that makes him happy.
Waiting for free throw shooter.
Possibly winded and thankful to see a chair.
Considering defense, but allowing Metcalf the chance to shine.
Yo-yoing, call him Stockton.
He’s going for the rebound, fighting through former NBA players and much longer larger men! How much courage you got? A lot.
…or not. Boozer with the rebound.
…not happy about his own rebounding prowess.
Not getting back on defense.
Ball watching. Who was he even guarding? Answer: Jefferson, the guy getting the easy lay-up.
Again, considering defense.
He do do low fives with Giannis.
Does not agree with coach Giannis’ play choice.
In the end, 21’s team won the game, and the rapper even scored the 21st point for his team.
