Drake is a self-prophesying meme. But especially when it comes to his obsession with basketball.

"Drake wants to be a basketball wife so bad!!!!"

Over the weekend, University of Kentucky was kind to grant their #1 fan a chance to warm up with the team before their Midnight Madness game.

Drake was elated.

With lyrics like "I been Steph Curry with the shot" and "bitch you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym", Drake had a lot to live up to.

That was—because jokes write themselves—until he air-balled his first shot.
