Drake became the unofficial spokesperson for Toronto and all of Canada during the NBA Finals. Now that the Raptors won their first title, the rapper has no intention of ending the celebration.
Still, both Drake and Steph Curry have taken the win in stride. After Thursday night’s game, the two hopped on a Facetime call, where Steph congratulated Drake: “Enjoy man, that’s big time for you. You, the whole city, the whole everybody. Y'all deserve it man. Congrats.”
Drake—who was already outfitted in an official championship hat—sent his love to Kevin Durant, who's suffering from a ruptured Achilles, and Klay Thompson, who tore his ACL during Game 6.
Drake continued his celebration by giving a post-game interview, where he almost felt like one of the players from the team. “This is poetic,” he said, continuing, “We did this. We did this off of heart, we did this off of love. We willed this into existence, we manifested this.... It’s beautiful. Look at my brothers up there celebrating.”
“You see what my hat says?” he asked. “Champions. Let’s go.”
He also went on Instagram Live high off the thrill of victory. Watch the clips below.
