Lil Baby knew where to go for jump shot rehab — the McDonald’s All-American Game in Chi-Town — featuring 24 of the best girls basketball players in the country … where Baby got tips from future Duke University star Ashlon Jackson.
Baby was at the All-Star game in Chicago to perform during the halftime show of the high-profile sporting event Tuesday night. But, before the “Drip Too Hard” rapper performed, he took pics with the players and hoisted up a few shots.
5-star guard and Duke recruit, Ashlon Jackson, ranked the 16th best player in the nation, posted a video of her and Baby shooting around … and with help of the sharpshooter, the hip-hop stars’ J looked on point.
The video shows Jackson working on Baby’s form and follow through … before he proceeded to knock down a long jump shot.
And, Baby went to the right person for help. Ashlon who won the McDonald’s 3-Point contest.
Baby clearly appreciated the advice … and posed for a ton of pics with players and coaches.
FYI, the McDonald’s game is a big deal. Everyone from Candace Parker to Skylar Diggins to Sabrina Ionescu have played in the McDonald’s game (and on the guys side — LeBron, Kobe, KG)
Of course, we’ve seen Lil Baby in action before … when he played with fellow hooping rapper 2 Chainz in a game against Quavo& Jack Harlow in a 2-on-2 charity basketball game. Baby and 2 Chainz — who played college basketball — lost 21-7, and the Internet let Baby have it for a perceived lack ok skills.
But now, Baby’s got a J … so, NBA Celebrity All-Star Game next?!
