DJ Khaled, known for his big bang hits which have also featured artists ranging from Drake to Justin Bieber to The Migos, and his trademark line “WE THE BEST”, tried his hands at a new skill that he seems to have been practicing a lot lately, and that was his love for the game of basketball. DJ Khaled tried his hands at the NBA All-Star skills challenge and showed us his exquisite set of skills full of sauce in his moves and confidence in his hands.
Khaled was so good in the All-Stars skills challenge that the world of twitter didn’t take much time in comparing him to the struggling man, Russell Westbrook of the Los Angeles Lakers, who at this point has had performances worse than what DJ Khaled showed on court as he dribbled with all the razzle-dazzle on his way to the rim.
Let us take a close look at DJ Khaled’s attempt at the NBA Skills challenge and analyse how well he actually performed, the things he said after his performance and how he compares to the Lakers’ Russell Westbrook.
DJ Khaled now goes for the All-Stars Skills Challenge, shows us what confidence looks like
DJ Khaled could now add “WE THE BEST” after every dribble that eh does as the man is nothing less than a baller. Khaled dared to try his hands at the NBA All-Stars Skills challenge and did nothing less than absolutely dismantling it and giving us a lesson in faith, confidence and never giving up.
Khaled started off right in front of the Half court line as he passed one moving obstruction in his way with a bit of razzle dazzle in his dribbling, and then Khaled turned around and passed the other moving obstruction showing smooth handles as he now found himself in front of the rim with a clear view at the bucket, which is when he pulled up and took a shot, which sadly, was an air ball.
Khaled was told by the cameraman that everyone was watching him and he couldn’t be missing such badly which Is when he let everyone know that it didn’t bother him and took the pass, and pulled up another time and shot his shot, which this time, landed with the sweet silent noise. Khaled took the opportunity to tell the kids that they shouldn’t be discouraged no matter how many times they miss or lose, and should always have faith in themselves which will keep them moving.
After giving such a wonderful message, Khaled went on to tell everyone that he could’ve hit the shot in one go but he wanted to the kids a valuable life lesson and him missing the shot was important for that process while also highlighting at the end that he had a lot of ice(jewellery) on him which stopped him from shooting the perfect shot like the second time.
Now that we have seen the exquisite skills by Khaled, let us get into the comparison between him and multi-time NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook who doesn’t seem to be having a very good run this season as he struggles to be consistent with his performances.
DJ Khaled seemed to be swift in taking the second shot which he landed with a sweet silent voice which is nothing similar to Russell Westbrook who has been inconsistent with his shooting, and has shot nothing but bricks lately, having little to none impact in the games for the Lakers. Westbrook also doesn’t have as much razzle dazzle in his dribbling as DJ Khaled who was smooth with his moves and made his presence fell on court. Russell might be a motivational figure to many kids who look up to him but the speech given by Khaled also takes over that, and at the end proves that Khaled might actually be better than Westbrook.
