Drake was obviously supposed to be the star of the third annual "Drake Night" at Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Wednesday night. The Raptors held a press conference for the rapper before their game against the Warriors, they handed out special Drake T-shirts to celebrate the occasion, and they played nothing but Drake's music throughout the course of the night as he sat courtside and watched the game in a "Woman Crush Everyday" shirt with Doris Burke’s face on the front of it. But in the end, it was the Warriors who stole the show—and after the game ended, several Golden State players had a whole lot to say about it.
During the game, which the Warriors won 127-121, Drake talked trash to Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and pretty much any Golden State player within earshot. So when Green saw Andre Iguodala conducting a post-game interview, he returned the favor by interrupting Iggy to talk some trash back to Drake. "Drake’s boots cost them the game tonight," Green said, before running back to the locker room.
KD got in on the action, too. During Durant's post-game interview with ESPN, Drake walked by and bumped KD in the back on purpose. KD clearly wasn’t amused, and when he was asked a question about "Drake Night" a few moments later, he let it be known that he didn’t care what night it was. "I don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night!" he said, before making his way back to the locker room.
And the trash talk continued a short time later. While speaking with reporters, KD—who dropped 30 points during the game—was asked about what it was like to trade words with Drake as the game was going on. "It’s fun," he said. "When he’s in your ear and you shut him up, it’s even better."
And Green revealed that Drake had been "talking junk for a couple weeks now" about how the Raptors were going to beat the Warriors. He then ripped Drake’s outfit for the night and said he expected more out of him. "The shirt was nice," he said. "But his boots were so bad. I was disappointed in his outfit overall. It’s Drake Night. You gotta bring better boots than that."
It’s all love between these guys. Before the game, Drake called Curry, Durant, Green, and Klay Thompson "family." Thompson, by the way, was too busy kicking back with a cold one to get caught up in the post-game roasting of Drake:
But it’s pretty clear that the Warriors players aren’t going to take it easy on Drake simply because they’re all friendly with him off the court.
