Drake

The famous Canadian artist Drake is known as being one of the superfans in the NBA, supporting and representing his Toronto Raptors whenever he can. And he was definitely enjoying his time when the Bucks came to town for their Eastern Conference Finals matchup.

"I don't know how much he's on the court. It sounds like you guys are saying it's more than I realize. There's certainly no place for fans and, you know, whatever it is exactly that Drake is for the Toronto Raptors. You know, to be on the court, there's boundaries and lines for a reason, and like I said, the league is usually pretty good at being on top of stuff like that."

Drake responded to those comments on Social Media, with a bunch of emojis on Instagram and then posting an Instagram story showing he liked a comment from a user captioned:

"If you don't want the opposing team to celebrate and dance, prevent them from scoring, winning, or achieving their objective. Get over it and keep moving."

Giannis didn’t have his best games in Toronto, struggling from the free throw line and even air-balling some. But after all those antics, he might be very motivated to bring his team back into the lead, as the series resumes on Thursday night for a crucial Game 5.
