Drake is certainly no stranger to winning championships, and he managed to land another coveted trophy last night.
Drizzy and teammates Chubbs and OVO Niko, otherwise known as Team NTIG, have just won the Sanctuary Basketball League (SBL) Trophy for the second consecutive season.
Clips of the tense championship game have been uploaded to social media and show Drake’s team bursting into joy after teammate Chubbs scored a mid-range jumper.

In the middle of his celebration, the God 6 turns to the camera and says, “I did what Kobe did in Game 7 against the Celtics.”
Drake channeled his Mamba Mentality just like Bryant did in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, where he scored 23 points and grabbed 15 rebounds.
Drake only started the SBL league last year, and he’s already a two-time champion.
Some clips show Drizzy posing with his teammates, as they rehearse “two of them”, referencing their back-to-back championship wins.
After the win, Drake lived up to his Champagne Papi name and popped several bottles of champagne and sprayed them into the air in celebration.
The championship game was played right at Drake’s Bridle Path mansion with a state-of-the-art integrated basketball court.
The court features the owl-shaped logo of Drake’s OVO record label and is autographed on the floor as “The Sanctuary”.
SBL even has its own Instagram account, followed by Drake himself. The league biography is cleverly referred to as “Poor Mans NBA”.
A few months ago, Drake’s team managed to hang on to the championship after their last three games.
It’s not yet known if there will be another championship parade, but knowing Drake, he certainly won’t be shy about celebrating in a big way.
