Ever since the Toronto Raptors appointed Drake as their official global ambassador heading into the 2013-14 season, the entertainer has played the role perfectly. Throughout the years, we’ve seen Drake advance from much more than an artist who makes personal music into an NBA superfan. He’s given us classic moments that prove he isn’t only doing this for show and that he cares about his Raptors. If you’re ever on the sideline and Drakes around, perhaps you might receive a shoulder rub from the rapper too! Here are the most memorable moments Superfan Drake has to offer.
Kobe, LeBron, And Drake…
Kobe Bryant announced that the 2015-16 year would be his final season in the NBA. It became a “Farewell Tour” for Bryant that year as he played through old age and two decades worth of injury. When the All-star game came in February of 2016, it would be the last time he squared off against LeBron James in the exhibition game.
As the match started to heat up, Bryant caught the ball on at the three-point line, and there James was, waiting to go one-on-one with the Black Mamba. It was an iconic moment captured that many believe Drake ruined.
