National Basketball Association contacts Toronto Raptors about rapper Drake during Eastern Conference finals

He continued: "Even before the Finals began, we at True Hoops heard from plugged-in sources associated with players and the league - but not the team - that Kawhi would return to the Toronto, at least on a short-term deal".

"Do I like him as a Raptors fan?"

During the Eastern Conference Finals which featured the Raptors, the National Basketball Association attempted to limit Drake's theatrics with players and coaches after Drake was seen massaging the shoulders of Raptors head coach Nick Nurse.

You wanted him gone.

"He's worked his ass off to be who he is, and when you do that - I think we all know - when you do that you get more leash than others".

"But at the same time I think there are appropriate lines that shouldn't be crossed in terms of how a competing team is addressed". But if Silver thought Drake wasn't going to make the game about himself, he was sorely mistaken. "In the summer, I go in and I work on different things".

More news: Warriors heavily favored over Raptors in NBA Finals

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) reacts after a play during the third quarter against the Houston Rockets in game four of the second round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Toyota Center.

The Warriors are a solid favorite to hoist their fourth Larry O'Brien trophy in five years - thanks to the typically wonderful play of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, among others.

"KD's an all-time great player on both ends of the floor, so I could sit here and talk for days about what he adds to our roster", Curry said. Aside from trash talking Green, Drake trolled Warriors star Steph Curry by wearing his father Dell Curry's jersey from when he played for Toronto.

Even funnier: Drake's armband.

Take last night's game, for example. That bit of stray lint was put on Drake's Instagram with a note saying that he was selling it on eBay under the "username: DraymondShouldntWear23". The Raptors won game one of the series in a decisive victory over GSW.

"There's some optimism within members of the organization", Haynes wrote, "that a Game 3 arrival could be viable, but there's a stronger possibility that Game 4 is the most logical option, sources said".
