Drake is Steph Curry with the shot in hilarious impression

Warriors
Drake, Steph

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, as the old adage goes.

Just ask Drake.

The four-time Grammy award winner and iconic rapper showcased a step-back move that looked quite ... familiar.

See for yourself.

It appears Drake did his best Steph Curry impression, complete with the crazy crossovers and signature step-back the seven-time NBA All-Star has made famous.

It makes sense Drake can pull off the impression. After all, Drake coined one of the most popular Warriors' references in "Steph Curry with the shot."

The two have been friends for several years and have no shortage of stories.

For example, there was the time Steph and Drake had a shooting competition at "OVO Court," the basketball court located at Drake's mansion in Toronto, Canada.

Or the time coach Steve Kerr fined the rapper for making Curry and Draymond Green late for a team flight.

And who could forget the two exchanging some friendly trash talk in Toronto before the 2019 NBA Finals?

Drake's impersonation couldn't have come at a more opportune time. Curry dropped 27 points Monday in the Warriors' loss against the Los Angeles Lakers and became Golden State's franchise leader in assists with 4,856.

Are there better impressions of Curry out there? That's a hard sell. But it's a safe bet Drake will display his version if the two ever square off for another shooting competition.
