This year’s NBA Finals are between the Golden State Warriors (for the millionth time) and the Toronto Raptors. Drake is a huge Raptors stan, being from Canada and all, and the Raptors have embraced him right back, making him a “global ambassador” for the team, and giving him courtside tickets for years now. Drake got courtside tickets for Game 1 of the Finals last night. He managed to get the tickets despite the fact that there have been complaints about Drake’s courtside antics for a year or longer, and he was EXTRA extra during the Raptors’ conference games. Drake was told to “tone it down.” The NBA told the Raptors too: your guy needs to take it down a notch. Instead, this is what happened during Game 1 of the Finals:

Drake calling the Warriors “trash” on their way off the court is class personified. On his worst day @ MSG Spike ain’t do that.

That’s Drake standing courtside and getting in the face of the Warriors’ Draymond Green, and if you’re good at lip-reading, you can absolutely see that Drake tells Draymond “you’re trash.” Steph Curry comes up alongside Draymond and it looks like he’s laughing at Drake’s clownery too, but in a “can you believe this douche?” sort of way. I understand the whole “trash talking” thing, but I tend to think this is way too much. The Raptors won Game 1 by the way.

Drake also wore a Raptors jersey which said “Curry 30” – Steph Curry’s dad, Dell Curry, played for the Raptors (as #30) for several years. High-level troll.
