Kerr, Curry not worried about Drake's presence in Finals The Milwaukee Bucks' fan base and head coach Mike Budenholzer took exception to antics during the team's Eastern Conference finals matchup against the Toronto Raptors, calling out the Canadian rapper for roaming the sideline and stepping onto the floor. The Golden State Warriors, on the other hand, don't see Drake as an issue before squaring off against the Raptors in the NBA Finals on Thursday. "I'm not worried about Drake," said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr on Monday, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "I called him on his cell phone earlier ... my daughter just rolled her eyes, 'no more dad jokes please.

Drake — Toronto Raptors superfan, occasional nuisance, and global ambassador—will release two new songs tomorrow to celebrate his favorite team’s first During Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, Drake wore Dell Curry’s No. 30 Toronto Raptors jersey (pictured above).

Tonight, in a post-game interview, Drake discussed the win with reporters. “We did this off of heart. We did this off of love,” he said. “We willed this into existence. We manifested this. I told you the first time. People like to make memes—make another meme out of this. It’s beautiful.”

Drake has been especially vocal throughout the Raptors’ run to the NBA Finals. In May, during the Eastern Conference Finals, Drake interacted directly with Raptors coach Nick Nurse. He was also criticized by Milwaukee Bucks fans for what they saw as disrespectful antics on the sidelines. Georgios Dimitropoulos (a senior executive at the European agency that used to represent Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo) tweeted, “Never seen anything as disrespectful as this before....” He later deleted the tweet.

Raptors in six! The NBA Finals are over now that the Toronto Raptors have defeated the Golden State Warriors 114 to 110. To celebrate his team's win, Raptors ambassador Drake announced that on Friday he's dropping to new tracks titled "Omertá" and "Money in the Grave" featuring Rick Ross

Following Dimitropoulos’ tweet, Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said:

I don’t know how much he’s on the court. It sounds like you guys are saying it’s more than I realize. There’s certainly no place for fans and, you know, whatever it is exactly that Drake is for the Toronto Raptors. You know, to be on the court, there’s boundaries and lines for a reason, and like I said, the league is usually pretty good at being on top of stuff like that.

Drake, in turn, responded indirectly with photos and emoji. Following the Raptors’ series victory over the Bucks, NBA officials spoke with Drake about his behavior.

During Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, Drake wore Dell Curry’s No. 30 Toronto Raptors jersey. Dell Curry played for the Raptors from 1999 to 2002. His son, Stephen Curry, has won three NBA titles with the Warriors.

Also during Game 1, Drake exchanged words with the Warriors’ Draymond Green. “We talked; we barked a little bit. But I wouldn’t necessarily consider it a scuffle. [It wasn’t] what I personally would consider a scuffle,” Green said.

Off the court, San Francisco radio station KBLX stopped playing Drake’s music during the Finals. “Our listeners are in absolute support of the station’s decision to ban all Drake music until the NBA finals are had by Stephen Curry and the Warriors,” KBLX program director Elroy Smith told Variety. “Drake started it by disrespecting the Warriors. His taunting toward the Warriors must stop.”
