    He's NOT an ambassador and he's NOT a superfan. He's a bad representative and an embarrassment.

    Why is Drake elevated above all other fans? I don't care much about his trash talking. I care that he's allowed to walk around out there and interact with the huddles and give the coach back rubs. Anyone else would be escorted out of the building but because he's Drake he can do pretty much what he wants? Not OK.

    People are pissed that a top rapper is not cheering an American team. Drake is Canadian, get a grip, of course he's going cheer his hometown team.

    If you letting a rapper on the sideline get under your skin than you’ve already lost mentally the raptors will just do the physical part

    I don't mind Drake's antics. possibly what he's doing would cause a "Reggie Miller" performance from the entire GSW squad. in that case, the crowd would start blaming Drake for firing up GSW and tell him to sit down and shut up. recently, that hoe called Rihanna did almost the same thing made KD hella made and torched the entire Cavs team.

    Man, people are clowns. Most people who have a issue with this, have never played ball in a intense environment. I have played in Church leagues and church people are literally cursing and degrading you while you're on the free throw line. As a player you embrace this type of antics, it fuels you athletically. It's normal, for hood hoopers lol

    The NBA is cutting Drake a lot of slack because Drake is getting people to buy tickets. It seems like a fair trade off for me.

    I like Stevens point about Lebron. Best way to shut down drake is to win games just like when lebron swept them out of the playoffs, Drake was silent then.

    If regular a fan was behaving the same way, security would have thrown them out of the game. ESPN would air segment about fans misbehaving at sporting events. If this was going on in Philadelphia, Stephen A and others would have a problem with it

    This was about the color of drakes skin from the beginning. If he was a pigment or two lighter the commentators would’ve thought it was funny.
