Rap superstar and Toronto Raptors “Global Ambassador” Drake dominated conversation across sports talk shows this week, with his sideline antics during Toronto’s home games in their Eastern Conference Finals playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks. He taunted the Milwaukee Bucks players, hyped up the Scotiabank Arena, and even gave Raptors head coach Nick Nurse a quick massage.
The Bucks owner’s daughter, Mallory Edens, attempted to troll Drake by wearing a Pusha T shirt courtside at Thursday night’s (May 23) Game Five in Milwaukee — but Drizzy had the last laugh, as the Raptors shocked the Bucks with a 105-99 victory to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. The 6 God then shot Edens a follow on IG, and even made a photo of her his profile picture to take his trolling to the next level. “All is fair in love and war and trust me, I’ll still get you tickets to OVO Fest,” he wrote to his IG story.
Drizzy was not in Milwaukee, as he led the charge for We the North at the Jurassic Park watch party outside of the Raptors arena, with thousands of rabid fans. Following the hard-fought victory, Drake let his emotions spill over to the local news reporters on the scene.
“Look at this, we created this. This didn’t exist before we were here. Look around at the Square. We did this. It doesn’t matter what anyone says. They could say it’s disrespectful, they could say it’s this and that, but everybody’s within the rules. All we are is proud and passionate. The Toronto Raptors are like a college sports team. I love Toronto. I love this team and we’re going to the NBA Finals,” an amped up Drake declared.
The Raptors will look to close out the series and advance to their first-ever NBA Finals with a Game Six victory on Saturday (May 25) in front of their hometown fans. Check out some of the back-and-forth from Game Five below.
