LeBron James put that Cavaliers band of misfits on his back once again on Thursday, leading his team to a 128-110 Game 2 victory over the Toronto Raptors as the series heads to Cleveland. When the Raptors were on the brink of going down 0-2, NBA fans thought back to that moment earlier in the game when the cameras caught a dejected Drake sitting courtside, and that's when the collective light bulb went off in everyone's heads.
In his song, "God's Plan," there's a line where Drake says, "And you know me, turn the O2 into the O3, dog." With another Cavs win on Saturday, they can "turn that 0-2 into an 0-3." And of course, we were all thinking the same thing.
Drake, however, knew just how to counter that troll attempt.
While things aren't looking great for Drake's Raptors, his beef with the Cavaliers' Kendrick Perkins may be coming to an end. Before Game 2, Perkins told ESPN that he's willing to let their little feud die as long as he's willing to do the same. "I'm here to support my teammates," he said. "I'm here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers. At the end of the day, it isn't about Perk vs. Drake, that doesn't even sound right. It's the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. the Toronto Raptors. Besides, what could he possibly do to me? I mean, really. If he leaves me alone, I'll leave him alone, and that's all there is."
That's cool. Now let's get back to these NBA fans getting off their "God's Plan" jokes.
