Drake, J. Cole & Justin Bieber Among Music’s Best Ballers, According to Celebrity Basketball Trainer

Whether it’s NBA stars or A-list rappers, celebrity trainer Chris Brickley has worked with some of the best talents the world has to offer on and off the basketball court.

Over the weekend, Brickley compiled a list championing 10 musicians he’s trained with and watched play pick-up on New York City’s West Side as part of his Black Ops Basketball sessions.

“This is a heavily talked about debate!! But let’s get into it,” he wrote on Instagram. “What artist has the best game? I could have done 15 of these slides. But I picked 10. Talk to me, who looks the best??? Also, what other artists can really hoop⁉️”

Brickley’s list — which doesn’t appear to be ranked in order — includes highlights from Drake, J. Cole, Justin Bieber, Lil Durk, Travis Scott, Quavo, Dave East, Chris Brown, Rowdy Rebel and H.E.R.

Plenty of debate broke out in his comments section, but even Chris Brown chimed in to give the crown to Dave East, who played Division 1 basketball for Towson University.

“Dave the only N—a that can really hoop,” Brown wrote, but made sure to note that nobody else can keep up with him. “Y’all better stop playing I will cook the rest!!! Yall know my body.”

Quality Control Music A&R Wayno added: “[Dave] East , and he don’t even trained if he trained one month ain’t no rapper beating him in ball.”

Sheck Wes took major issue and called the list “blasphemy” as he couldn’t believe he was left off. The “Mo Bamba” rapper realized his professional hoop dreams by suiting up overseas in a French league for the 2021 season.

NBA players even took note as the list caught the eye of Milwaukee Bucks superstar Damian Lillard and he gave the title belt to Dax.
