LOS ANGELES (AP) — As host of the upcoming ESPY Awards, rapper Drake will be entertaining a room full of sports stars. One of them could be the rapper's online infatuation, WNBA player Skylar Diggins.

She isn't nominated for Wednesday's show, which attracts a who's who of athletes to the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Drake has yet to meet Diggins, who plays for the Tulsa Shock and dates former Notre Dame football player Daniel Smith. He hasn't taken too kindly to Drake's Instagram posts of Diggins, with Smith posting his own photo of himself with her.

Drake says it would be "extremely awkward" to meet Diggins, and he probably owes her an apology. Drake says Friday "It's all been in good spirits."

Lil' Wayne, who is teaming with Drake on an upcoming tour, also has admired Diggins.
