Do Drake’s Courtside Antics Go Too Far?
Drake fans know he is a NBA superfan and he loves his hometown team the Toronto Raptors.
The rapper goes to as many games as he can and he always sits courtside, but some say that’s the problem.
Drake is often on his feet.
He shouts at players and officials.
Now with the Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals, Drake has been stealing the spotlight.
He gave the raptor’s coach a quick shoulder massage during Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Drake was also called out for relentlessly trash talking the Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Milwaukee’s head coach even complained about Drake’s on-going antics during a conference call with reporters.
“There is certainly no place for fans — or whatever Drake is for the Raptors — on the court,” said Mike Budenholzer. “There’s boundaries and lines for a reason.”
ESPN’s Steven A. Smith has another take. He loves what Drake is doing on the sidelines and thinks there is nothing wrong with his behavior.
“He’s a part of the Raptor’s organization. He’s not just a typical fan, he’s Drake,” Smith said on-air. “If you have a problem with it
Milwaukee, do something about it, give him nothing to cheer about.”
