Lil Durk‘s jump shots have always been A-1, and his latest video on social media proves it. On Thursday afternoon (March 14), the OTF chief uploaded a video to Twitter of him shooting straight buckets at an undisclosed basketball court. With OTF’s “No Auto Durk” acting as the soundtrack of his impromptu And-1 mixtape, Durk lands every shot and attempts to break a few ankles while he flexes his skills in the paint.
“I’m the Chicago @russwest44,” Durk says in his tweet of the video.
Russell Westbrook hasn’t responded to Lil Durk’s claim yet, but other professional ballers have commented on the Chicago rapper’s jump shot. Denver Nuggets player Isaiah Thomas acknowledged Durk’s game while L.A. Laker Kyle Kuzma admitted that Durk has the best form in the rap game.
“Bro you easily got the best shooting form in the rap game lol I see u bruhhh @lildurk,” Kuzma says in his retweet of Durk’s video.
Lil Durk’s love for basketball has never been a secret. Although he never played for a team in school or on a professional level, Durk has proved time and again that he’s one of the best basketball players in the music industry.
Last year, the former XXL Freshman issued a challenge to a handful rappers to play him in a game for $10,000. He called out artists who can ball like Young Scooter, YFN Lucci, PNB Rock, Snap Dogg, Tee Grizzley, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Bow Wow, Tory Lanez, Lil Yachty, Chris Brown, Lil Dicky, Quavo and Lil Pump. Of those artists, Bow Wow accepted the challenge, but ended up taking an L and lost Durk’s prize money.
