T.O. IT'S HAPPENING— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) May 26, 2019
Needless to say, Toronto's global ambassador, Drake, is extremely happy. The If You're Reading This It's Too Late artist was in attendance for Game 6 and wore an outfit that paid homage to 2Pac's Birdie character from the 1994 film Above the Rim.
my favorite thing about this is you know Drake 100 percent tried wearing the bandana like Birdie, looked in the mirror, saw it, then was like, “Oh, nah, i’ll just wear it around my neck” lol https://t.co/zQvEw5rrm2— Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) May 26, 2019
The back of Drake's hoody appropriately read: "KAWHI ME A RIVER."
