Despite being the best in the world when it comes to hoops, NBA players have shown that they can also excel in other fields, whether it’s Damian Lillard proving he can rap or Jimmy Butler showing his business acumen by putting up a coffee shop. Now, Chicago Bulls rookie Patrick Williams may be the latest player to join the list.
After their latest practice, the young forward proved that he can sing.

For the uninitiateded, Williams covered Drake’s “One Dance,” which was released in 2016 as part of his album Views. Once he fielded questions from reporters, the 19-year old newcomer admitted that Drake is his favorite artist, and he couldn’t help but sing along while his jam was playing during their practice.
The fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft has played and started in all 11 games for the Bulls, averaging 10.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, and one steal while shooting 47.2% from the field, including an impressive 45.8% from beyond the arc.
The Florida State product has had a baptism of fire in the NBA as he’s had to guard the likes of back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James, and Kawhi Leonard. But Williams has shown that he’s up to the task of shadowing some of the game’s elite.
He is coming off a 17-point performance against the Los Angeles Clippers, although the Bulls ended up losing to drop to 4-7 this season. But hey maybe, as Drake said he also started from the bottom.
Patrick Williams and the Bulls will toosie slide against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, where they have a chance to bounce back from the loss. God’s plan, perhaps?
