The Toronto Raptors, until very recently, had middling successes. A lot of promise was shown, in the Chris Bosh era, but never realized. When he bolted for Miami, the Raptors bottomed out, but DeMar DeRozan was their diamond in the ruff.
In 2012, Kyle Lowry joined the team, soon forming a powerful duo with role player, DeRozan. That same year, Drake joined the Raptors as an ambassador for the team. For all the talk of a “Drake curse,” Toronto hasn’t missed the playoffs since 2013.
Drake has become the star of the Raptors, as they have finally gotten their act together. One win away from a title, Kawhi Leonard is running the show, as they traded DeRozan for him. His strong play eliminated the Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers (in a classic series), and the Milwaukee Bucks.
In these NBA Finals, the Raptors have taken on the Golden State Warriors, taking them down 3-1, but grew afraid when Kevin Durant returned. Prematurely, Raptors fans cheered, when KD went down, believing his absence would be their championship, but Steph Curry had other plans. Playing the role of sportsman, antagonist Drake definitely looked in anguish, but Twitter calls BS, clowning Drizzy for his “fake” outrage.
