Apparently being a Kentucky player, coach or employee wasn’t a prerequisite when school officials were determining who would receive championship rings commemorating the Wildcats’ 2012 national title.
Rapper Drake showed that over the weekend when he posted a photo of his personalized ring on instagram complete with his nickname “Drizzy” etched on one side.
Why would Drake receive a ring when he didn’t draw up a single play or score any baskets last season? Well, those are fair questions but Drake has become one of Kentucky’s most visible celebrity fans since the arrival of John Calipari three years ago.
He coached one of the intrasquad teams at Big Blue Madness in 2009. He sat behind the bench during the NCAA tournament in 2010. And he invited Calipari and the entire Wildcats team on stage with him during a concert in Lexington two years ago, even leading a C-A-T-S cheer and performing the John Wall dance on stage.
“They gave me a chance to actually come in and talk to them early in the season,” Drake told CoachCal.com in 2010. “Just them listening to me, I think we all connected. They’re all my boys. This is my family.”
