Drake‘s son Adonis is making quite an impression in the sports industry with his applaudable basketball skills and he recently gave the scoop on where he learned to be that good!
The Canadian rapper and his mini-me have been tugging at hearts with their social media antics of late.
Drake’s Son Adonis Is An Aspiring Basketballer In The Making
Last week, Drake and Adonis made headlines when the doting father flaunted an adorable moment where his son was mimicking the iconic Lebron James.
The clip shared on Instagram showed proud dad Drake filming from the sidelines while Adonis worked the basketball court.
The soon-to-be five-year-old dressed in black and grey basketball shorts and a jersey was seen practicing his hoops with who looked like a trainer.
The preschooler bounced the ball like a pro and after running around made a magnificent shoot into the basket.
While Adonis’ shooting skills were undoubtedly mindblowing, it was his gesture while playing that caught fans’ attention. The little one sweetly mimicked Lebron James’ mannerisms, pulling his jersey and slamming his chest.
The “God’s Plan” rapper sweetly captioned the post, “where is he getting the mannerisms from @kingjames 😂.”
Fans and colleagues camped in the comments section cheering on the budding basketballer. One fan wrote, “Kid is already a legend,” while another added, “that’s dope !, We need him on the Celtics tonight lol.”
Many branded Adonis and “King” and the clip has since garnered over 2 million likes since its upload.
Adorable Adonis Spills His Basketball Secret
A week after his triumphant show-off on social media, Adonis is now letting fans in on how he is able to shoot so well at such a young age.
In an Instagram Story clip shared on Drake’s Instagram Story, the 35-year-0ld was playfully interrogating his son.
“Yo, where you learn to shoot like that?” the Grammy Award winner asked his son to which the young one sweetly replied, “I don’t know,” while wearing a wide grin and shrugging his shoulders.

Drake, however, persisted, telling his boy, “You went four for five. You hit four shots out of five,” to which he responds, “Yes, I know!”
Drake unable to hold his laughter at his son’s smugness asks again, “Okay, where’d you learn to shoot like that, then?”
Adonis finally opens up telling his father, “I shoot at school,” but not without letting the world know he is a heartbreaker just like his dad as he chips in, “also send that to our girl.”
Drake then bursts out in laughter, asking his son, “You want your highlights?” to which Adonis enthusiastically answers, “Yeah!”
The “Degrassi: The Next Generation” alum welcomed Adonis in October 2017 with Sophie Brussaux, a model and an artist.
Although the rapper kept the news a secret for a while, he finally introduced fans to the little one on social media and they have remained a staple in our lives.
Could Jack Harlow Be Drake’s Son From The Future?
Although Adonis is Drake’s only known son, social media have a bizarre theory that the “Hotline Bling” rapper has another offspring in the person of Jack Harlow.
As The Blast previously reported, a Facebook conspiracy theorist by the name Von Shiesty sent the internet spinning when he shared his thoughts about a connection between the two light-skinned rappers.
“Why the hell is Jack Harlow so close to this man Drake? It could only mean two things,” Shiesty wrote.
The netizen then continued, “One, they gay asf, two this man Jack is Adonis from the future‼️‼️‼️ Just look at them bro idc wtf talm bout, Something must’ve happened to Drake in the future so Adonis A.K.A. JACK HARLOW came to the present to save his dad’s life.”
The bizarre theory sure made rounds and while it is highly UNLIKELY, fans couldn’t help but spot a striking resemblance between Harlow and Adonis. How hilarious!
