Drake and Stephen Curry have a budding friendship that not only includes a customary run to In-N-Out Burger, but per a line from Drizzy’s “Summer Sixteen” track, his outdoor basketball court at his L.A. mansion also serves as a practice ground for the Golden State Warrior and his teammates.
To take their bro-ship a step further, the Toronto native gifted the record-breaking athlete with a one-of-a-kind jacket. You might’ve noticed the intricately detailed outerwear item that Drake sported during All-Star weekend last month, which pays tribute to near-retiree Kobe Bryant.
During a quick chat with sportscasters at the Toronto Raptors vs. the Portland Trailblazers game (Mar. 4), the Grammy Award winning rapper said the Under Armour ambassador now holds a piece of Black Mamba memorabilia. “Steph is my guy, man,” he said. “We’re family.”

Drake also congratulated him on breaking the record for most three-pointers in a single season, which was previously held by none other than Curry himself.
