Former child actor, and current global hip-hop icon, Drake is renowned for being the biggest celebrity sports groupie around.
Aside from seemingly showing up every time any sports team anywhere wins anything, he’s also the Toronto Raptors’ resident celebrity super fan. He famously has a penchant for inserting himself into in-game situations by taunting opposing players.
The most famous example of this came during last year’s NBA Eastern Conference Finals when he pissed off LeBron James with his unique brand of overly aggressive fandom.
Last night was Drake Night in Toronto, a Raptors celebration of all things Drake. Toronto lost to the Warriors 127-121 to spoil the affair. To be fair to the Raptors, it was their second game of a brutal Cavs/Warriors back-to-back.
After the game, Kevin Durant, who had 30 points on the night, was pulled aside for a post game interview after the win.
The interview was interrupted when Drake snuck up from behind and bumped KD in a joking manner. Durant was clearly not amused by the gesture and briefly shot a Vladimir Putin-like death stare at Drake.
Following the bump he was asked what he thought about Drake Night. Durant responded, “I don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night.”
Durant then abruptly walked away from the interview. Ouch. KD and Drake are apparently friends, but this little exchange was priceless.
