Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios participated in the Sydney Kings’ Starlight Celebrity Game and he definitely showed some of his basketball skills as the NBL created a Kyrgios mixtape after the game. Minutes into the match, Kyrgios blocked New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet.
Minutes later, Kyrgios made a move on Perrottet, after which he was left wide open for a perimeter shot. Kyrgios balled out as he finished the game with 16 points, two assists and two blocks.
Corey ‘Homicide’ Williams loved watching Kyrgios
NBL commentator Williams lost it after Kyrgios crossed Perrottet.
Also, Williams said Kyrgios is “no joke” on the basketball court. “OMG @NickKyrgios put a series of moves on the NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet in the Celebrity ASG and hit the bucket. He blocked his shot twice,” NBL commentator Corey Williams posted on Twitter.
“16 points 2 dimes 2 blocks in 20 minutes. Even in a celebrity game he’s going hard. My man Nick ain’t no joke. #MustSeeTV”. 2GB host Ben Fordham, who also participated in the game, said Perrottet made it clear he will play on the same team with Kyrgios next team.
“The premier has spoken – Kyrgios will be on his team next time,” Fordham said post-game. “We came away with the victory but Starlight was the biggest winner. “Dom Perrottet was a good sport and put his reputation on the line.
Nick Kyrgios was off his game a bit so I expect more from him next year”. Meanwhile, Kyrgios won’t be playing at the French Open this year but plans to return to the tournament next year. “Next year I’m going to go to Paris.
I’m announcing now that I’m going to the French Open. I hadn’t played there in four years. I’ll be back next year,” Kyrgios revealed in Houston. “My girlfriend just wants to see Paris. I mean I will only just play the French Open as well.”
