Rapper Travis Scott is on tour and recently played two shows in Oakland, across the San Francisco Bay, where the Golden State Warriors play their home games.

On Wednesday, before the Warriors’ game against the Sacramento Kings, Scott came to the team’s practice facility and met with the players. He also got some shots against the greatest shooter of all time: Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

In the video, Scott Curry and Chris Paul received a warm welcome. He also took time to meet with rookie guard Brandin Podzemski, who complimented Scott on a “great show” in Oakland the night before, as well as Gary Payton II.

Podzemski then informed Scott that he wanted to see his plane.

Scott got a few shots in, and the video showed him landing several shots.

What does he look like? Not perfect, but not terrible. Scott’s foot can straighten toward the hoop, and his thumb appears to be creeping under the ball a little further. Likewise, both hands advance in his follow-through, which is what worked for Larry Bird, but not how the coach teaches shooting in 2023.

However, Scott seems to be getting a good spin, suggesting that his hand placement is not a big issue. Furthermore, he knocked down at least one 3-pointer from the corner, and NBA 3-pointers are about 1.5 feet longer than NCAA 3-pointers in the corners.

Scott had a show on Wednesday night, so it’s unclear how much of Wednesday’s game he saw.

If he had to leave before the end, he would have missed out on perhaps the best end to the youngster’s season yet. With less than a minute left, Curry rebounded a floater to give the Warriors a one-point lead.

On the next possession, Kings center Domantas Sabonis made a mid-range jump shot that put the Kings back in front. But Warriors guard Klay Thompson came off a screen and buried a jumper with 0.2 seconds left, giving the Warriors the 102-101 win.

The Warriors will play their first game in the new NBA championship on Friday when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Meanwhile, Scott will continue his tour at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on November 5, where the Chargers and Rams play their home games. Scott is said to be the first rap artist to play and sell out the 70,000-capacity venue. He is touring in support of his album “Utopia,” which was released in July and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
