Drake & Nicki Minaj Take Over The 2017 NBA Awards

The 2017 NBA Awards went down at Pier 36 in New York City last night. The Drake-hosted event featured a lone musical performance by Nicki Minaj, who brought out 2 Chainz to help her with “Realize.”

Throughout the night, Dizzy provided a variety of skits that included a parody of Get Out, an appearance by Will Ferrell, and Shaq DJing.

Watch clips from the award show below. I also included a full list of winners.
