It is no surprise that the talented music star, Drake, is a huge Toronto Raptors fan. At big home Raptor games, you can see him sitting court side, talking trash to the opposing team. Last night, the Raptors honored Drake and it was officially Drake night in Toronto. I think the next time they decide to do Drake night there, they should not plan it when the team plays the Golden State Warriors. Drake was sitting in his usual seat and up to his usual antics throughout the game.
The Toronto Raptors kept the game close the whole time, but every time it looked as if they could take the lead, the Warriors would hit a big shot or make a big play. That did not stop Drake form talking trash to the whole Warriors team, all game long. He ended up getting into it with Dramon Green in the third quarter, but it had a reserve effect as the Warriors did not seem to be effected by the Drake trash talk at all. It’s all love, though, at least in Durant’s case. Drake told reporters before the game that he’s happy to see his friend KD happy on the Warriors.
Recently, Drake wore a Kevin Durant jersey, over the summer, at his concert in the Warriors arena. He told the fans there that they would be getting some very big rings with KD in the Golden State. Throughout the game last night, Drake continued to try to stare down Kevin Durant and get into his head but it had no effect on KD. After the game, even super star Steph Curry weighed in on the Drake trash talking. He said he is a passionate fan and wants his team to win, so you cannot fault him there.
I think next time it will be a smart move not to schedule a Drake night on the night they play the most talented team in the NBA. The Raptors have a great team, but if they want to contend for an NBA championship, they must be able to beat the dominating teams in the western conference. Drake made his final move after the game, when he bumped into KD while he was giving his post-game interview. Kevin Durant said after asked about the bump "I am not worried about that guy." He was not affected by him at all and the final score showed that in the end.
