Rapper J. Cole Working Out With Orlando Magic

It may still be "the offseason" for a few more days, but The Offseason rapper J. Cole is testing his skills on the basketball court, working out this week with the Orlando Magic. 

The NBA team released some pictures Tuesday on its social media, showing Cole getting at it on the court with Magic players Cole Anthony, Moritz Wagner and RJ Hampton.

The 36-year-old Grammy Award-winning rapper actually played with the newly-formed Basketball Africa League's Rwanda Patriots earlier this year, shortly after releasing his latest album The Offseason

Cole only played in three games, but certainly brought some media attention to the new league. However, according to some reports, his presence wasn't universally beloved. Some players felt that Cole's roster spot was "disrespectful to the ones who sacrificed their whole lives for this."

His workout with the Magic players wouldn't be the first time Cole strutted on the court with NBA players, as many might remember his ill-fated dunk attempt at the 2019 All-Star Dunk Contest.
