Following Game 4, the Scorpion artist has received some backlash for his courtside antics with both head coach Mike Budenholzer and Georgios Dimitropoulos, Giannis Antetokounmpo's former European agent and the current senior director for Octagon Basketball Europe, calling Drake out.
Drake was named global ambassador of the Toronto Raptors in 2013. When his role was announced, it was said that Drake was being tasked with helping the Raptors "forge this new vision, this new buzz, this new excitement for where we're taking this organization." It was a move that coincided with the announcement that the team would be hosting the NBA All-Star Game that season.
Six years later, it appears that some of Drake’s contributions as global ambassador include heckling Giannis Antetokounmpo after missing a free throw.
Drake also rubbed the shoulders of Raptors head coach Nick Nurse during Game 4.
Following a tweet from Dimitropoulos referencing Drake’s courtside antics, Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer joined in on the Drake courtside backlash, saying there's "certainly no place" for his antics.
"I don't know of any person attending the game that isn't a player or coach that has access to the court," Budenholzer said about it all to reporters. "I don't know how much he's on the court. It sounds like you guys are saying a lot [...] There's certainly no place for fans—or whatever exactly is what Drake is for the Raptors—on the court. There's boundaries and lines for a reason. The league is pretty good about that."
The Toronto Raptors will return home for a Game 6, so stay tuned.
