Drake’s son Adonis Graham had the opportunity to meet one of his favorite hoopers when the Charlotte Hornets visited the Toronto Raptors. While his father is on the road for tour, Adonis pulled up to the Scotiabank Arena’s visiting locker room on Sunday (March 3) to spend some time with Hornets star LaMelo Ball, who gifted the 6-year-old an autographed jersey.

“Little man, what’s up y’all? What’s up Adonis, you good,” Melo asks Adonis in a video shared to the Hornets’ social media accounts.


“I got a little present for you, man,” Ball teased before bringing out the white signed jersey. “Little something something. Little jersey gang.”

Adonis replied: “Thanks, Melo!”

The duo went on to take a few photos together as well, which the Hornets hilariously captioned paying homage to Adonis’ rap debut on X: “My Man (Freestyle) featuring @MELOD1P.”

Unfortunately, Adonis didn’t get to see Ball suit up as LaMelo missed the game with a right ankle injury, and the Hornets ended up losing to the Raptors 111-106.

Much like his dad, Adonis loves basketball and has proven to be a big LaMelo fan in the past. Last May, Drake posted a drawing his son made of Ball using markers to social media. Shortly after, Ball sent Adonis a care package that included his rare Puma X LaMelo Ball MB.01 Digital Camo sneakers.

“Oh yeah! Let’s go,” Adonis repeats while running around his bedroom in a video shared at the time. “I got LaMelos!”
