Dwayne Johnson impressed with a tribute from an NBA Team

It is an undeniable fact that Dwayne Johnson has contributed a lot to the American Entertainment Industry. Be it as a pro wrestler, as an actor, or even as a rapper. He recently released a rap song that struck the streets by storm. Hearing the legend’s flow probably brought tears to the eyes of WWE fans. The world is lucky to be bearing witness to such an incredible set of talents from him.

Therefore the San Antonio Spurs gave a tribute to this legend. In response, Johnson called their mascot “The most electrifying mascot of the NBA”. However, he hilariously described himself as looking like a “Buff Lesbian Lunch Lady”. Indeed, the legend was grateful for a memorable tribute to the icon’s formidable career. This came after a series of photographs were published by the Spurs Mascot to try and get The Rock’s attention. Once he responded, there was nothing but gratitude from the legend’s side.
