Drake doesn’t play for the Toronto Raptors. Kendrick Perkins doesn’t really play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, although he does get to sit courtside for most games.
That didn’t stop the two from squaring up and exchanging words during halftime of Tuesday night’s Game 1 in the series between the Cavaliers and Raptors in Toronto.
As the teams went in for the half, Perkins apparently caught the ear of the Canadian rapper, or vice versa. It’s not clear what exactly went down, but players including Cleveland’s Jose Calderon had to make sure the two stayed separated.
That’s frosty. I don’t think Perk’s reputation is completely accurate, but there’s no way Drake could stand up to him if they were nose-to-nose. Good thing security (blue shirts) were nearby in any case.
Perhaps worse was the fact the Cavaliers stole Game 1 in Toronto in OT, 113-112.
That’s the kind of emotional beatdown Drake will be trying to duck in Game 2 on Thursday.
