The NBA has reportedly spoken with the Toronto Raptors following Drake‘s courtside conduct at their recent Eastern Conference finals game. The rapper, who has been a global ambassador for the Raptors since 2013, was seen mocking, laughing, hollering and even got out of his courtside seat to give the Raptors coach Nick Nurse a shoulder massage, incidents that were brought up by Milwaukee Buck’s coach Mike Budenholzer.
At NBA Finals media day, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr spoke on the incident ahead of their game against the Raptors, saying, “I kind of think it’s fun and the NBA kind of embraces the pop culture dynamic of the league and the stars and the celebrities who are out there.”
We’ll see how much of an impact Drake is for the Raptors.
Drake was a hot topic of conversation on today’s conference call with Mike Budenholzer. He said, in part, “There’s certainly no place for fans — or whatever Drake is for the raptors — on the court. There’s boundaries and lines for a reason.”
