R. Kelly showed up early to sing the national anthem at Tuesday’s basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks at the Barclays Center, shooting around beforehand and sinking a 3-pointer.
The R&B icon swished the shot, dressed in a turtle neck with a blazer and sunglass on, with a cigar in his mouth. See it here:

Afterwards, he belted out “The Star-Spangled Banner,” taking some liberties with the traditional melody. Watch a clip here:
