Report: Durant to travel with Warriors to Toronto

Report: Durant to travel with Warriors to Toronto Injured Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant will travel to Toronto for Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals, a league source told Yahoo's Chris Haynes. Durant has already been ruled out of Thursday's series opener due to his right calf strain. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Monday that he wasn't sure if Durant would travel with the team. Tuesday's development at least presents the possibility that Durant could suit up in Sunday's Game 2 against the Raptors. Durant hasn't played since hurting his calf during Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets. He has been shooting on his own but hasn't practiced with teammates since the injury.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant missed Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but had some fun on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Drake once was a Bay Area favorite, but after exchanging words with Draymond Green, trolling Warriors , the rapper's popularity is on the decline around here.

Drake has named Curry several times in his songs, and has also paid homage to injured Warriors star Kevin Durant , but he covered up his All is fair in love and war, and Drake is turning his friends into enemies, at least for the time being. After the game, Green provided his own account of the argument.

TORONTO — Drake seemingly set his trolling sights on injured Golden Star Warriors star Kevin Durant on Sunday for Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

The Toronto Raptors' global ambassador/rapper took his courtside seat just prior the player introductions, shaking hands with nearby fans. He was wearing a black hoodie with a picture of actor Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin McCallister in the "Home Alone" movie franchise, mouth open and holding his face above the word "Kevin?!?!?!"

One assumes it was an attempt to troll Durant, currently sidelined by a calf strain.

Culkin saw the hoodie, tweeting to his 391,000 followers: "Hey @Drake I'm right here, bro. DM me. See you at the BBQ."

Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson trade trash talk with Drake after Game 2

Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson trade trash talk with Drake after Game 2 The trash talk between Drake and the Golden State Warriors continues. Klay Thompson exited Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night with a hamstring injury suffered in the fourth quarter. Kevin Durant was not playing as he continues to recover from his calf injury. Even though neither player was on the floor at the end of the win, they made their contributions with some trash talk. KRON reporter Jason Dumas captured this video exchange which shows Thompson and Durant talking with Drake, the Raptors superfan/ambassador. “Weren’t talking tonight were ya? With your bum a*s.

The decal was no longer on Drake's back in the fourth quarter when he returned to his seat.

Standing up, Drake applauded the Raptors as they took the court, exchanging fist bumps with the players. He exchanged a hug and handshake with former U.S. president Barack Obama before taking his seat.

The rapper stood up to applaud veteran coach Frank Layden when he was honoured with the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award in the second quarter.

With Fred VanVleet at the free throw line in the second quarter, Drake and Toronto coach Nick Nurse chatted briefly. But there was no shoulder rub.

Drake himself was honoured with an ovation when he was shown during a Celebrity Watch montage on the big screen.

Drake was largely on his best behaviour for Game 1, although he subtly trolled Golden State star Steph Curry by choosing to honour Curry's father by wearing a vintage Dell Curry Raptors jersey.

Drake has named Curry several times in his songs, and has also paid homage to injured Warriors star Kevin Durant , but he covered up his All is fair in love and war, and Drake is turning his friends into enemies, at least for the time being. After the game, Green provided his own account of the argument.

He also wore a Nike wristband on his left bicep just above the elbow, apparently to cover up small tattoos dedicated to both Curry and Durant.

He wore a hoodie with "Kawhi Me a River" on the back for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final against the Milwaukee Bucks, whose star Giannis Antetokounmpo was well-defended by Raptors ace Kawhi Leonard.

The rapper did get into a jawing match with Warriors forward Draymond Green as the visitors filed off the floor following the Raptors' 118-109 win Thursday night. But nothing happened and Green appeared ready to cut the rapper some slack.

"He's a fan. He talks and it gets more attention because he's Drake," Green said the next day. "So many people are complaining about it, like, 'You don't let any other fan do that.' Yeah, any other fan is just not Drake, so they probably shouldn't be able to do that. That's just kind of how the cookie crumbles."

Drake and Green exchanged looks after the Warriors forward was hit with his second personal foul near the end of the first half Sunday, drawing comment from the rapper. There was more of the same when Green left the court for the break.

Commissioner Adam Silver, meanwhile, felt Drake went over the line in rubbing Nurse's shoulders during an Eastern Conference final game, but also said that he appreciated the rapper's "super-fan status and I know he's beloved in the community of Toronto."

Silver had a good view of Drake on Sunday, seated with Obama on the other side of the Scotiabank Arena lower bowl from the rapper's seats.
