Drake passions heat up with Raptors' run as crucial game approaches

By now, Drake's relentless grandstanding on behalf of his beloved Toronto Raptors is to be expected. And so too, then, is the wrath of Milwaukee Bucks' fans now excoriating the Canadian rapper for a series of escalating taunts. The off-court beef has been equal parts invigorating and infuriating for fans of both teams. Drake's gleeful jeers have only goaded more cross-border smack-talk on the eve of Saturday's pivotal Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference final at Scotiabank Arena. Drake's ties to the team go well beyond the run-of-the mill superfan. His powerful OVO brand is woven deeply into the team. But while Drake's ardent fandom makes for juicy headlines and reliably animated reaction shots for TV cameras, it has raised questions about reasonable courtside decorum. Drake's antics have clearly hit a nerve. However, Toronto Mayor John Tory and fans came out to support Drake and Canada's only NBA team.
