Drake is very excited about the Raptors and he’s letting everyone know it, including Mallory Edens, daughter of Bucks co-owner Wes Edens.
Drake has always leaned into his role of professional hype man for the Toronto Raptors and with his team now just one win away from the NBA Finals he certainly hasn’t taken his foot off the gas. He’s been on the sideline hollering at Giannis Antetokounmpo through every Raptors home game in this series, even coming onto the court to pat coach Nick Nurse on the back during a dead ball.
During last night’s Game 5 in Milwaukee, Mallory Edens, daughter of Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, was pictured sitting courtside and wearing a t-shirt with Pusha-T’ s face on it. This was an obvious jab at Drake who has publicly beefed with Pusha-T in the past. After the Raptors finished the game with a 105-99 win, pushing Milwaukee to the brink of elimination, Drake changed his Instagram profile photo to a picture of Edens and then included her in an Instagram story.
Drake also did some hollering on camera with media after the game.
Game 6 will be Saturday night in Toronto with the Raptors having a chance to advance to the NBA Finals and a date with the Golden State Warriors. One would assume Drake will be back courtside, getting loud and spastic in support of his hometown team. It also wouldn’t be a surprise to see him in some sort of shirt that throws shade back at Edens or the Bucks.
This Bucks-Raptors Eastern Conference Finals has been one of the most fascinating playoff series we’ve seen in a while but if the basketball itself isn’t enough for you, it probably helps to have a side-helping of celebrity fan-feuding to raise the stakes.
