Between Drake in Toronto and Kevin Hart in Philadelphia, two of the NBA's biggest celebrity fans have found themselves utterly silenced in the second round of the playoffs. In Drake's case, his Raptors have played the Cleveland Cavaliers tough, but they've fallen into a daunting, 3-0 hole after narrow losses in Games 1 and 3.
At this point, everyone is throwing dirt on the Boy—even LeBron James Jr., a.k.a. Bronny. Drake put up a photo on the 'gram Monday morning...
...and Bronny slid into the comments with a little trash talk on behalf of his father. "Your season ends tonight," he commented. Drake responded with a joke of his own.
The internet is an incredible place. As Bronny noted, the Cavs could close out the Raptors Monday night. They'll square off in Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will air on TNT.
What a depressing ending a sweep would be for Toronto fans, who watched the Raptors piece together their best regular season in franchise history en route to claiming the No. 1 seed. Is it time for the Raptors to blow it up? Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer published a good breakdown answering that question over the weekend.
Boston holds a commanding, 3-0 lead in the other East series. The Celtics will look to close out Philly Monday at 6 p.m. ET. That game will also air on TNT.
