Check Out the Custom Sneakers Drake Got the Toronto Raptors


The NBA’s Toronto Raptors are prowling atop the Atlantic Division with a 7-1 record, and it was their team ambassador Drake who helped them to their lucky seventh win Wednesday night (Nov. 12).

In their game against the Orlando Magic, a pair of Raptors players -- Lou Williams and Amir Johnson -- wore custom gold sneakers gifted by Drake. Williams wore Drake’s gold “OVO” IIIs and Johnson repped Young Money with a pair of “Drake vs. Lil Wayne” Air Jordan IIIs.

Williams shared the look via Instagram:

We can only hope the red-hot Raptors continue their winning ways -- unless you root for the division rival Nets, Knicks, or Celtics, of course -- so their wacky ambassador remains in the spotlight and can give us another lint roller incident this postseason.
