Did Newborn Babies Drive The Raptors' Playoff Success?

Did Newborn Babies Drive The Raptors' Playoff Success? Now that the Toronto Raptors are about to face off against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals, everyone is trying to figure out what got them there. Is this the work of star player Kawhi Leonard alone? Did Drake help or harm? Or was it the babies? The idea that newborns might have contributed to the Raptors’ history-making entry into the final round started right after the team won Game 5 against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. Point guard Fred VanVleet, who didn’t have a great playoff performance up to that point, was suddenly playing better than ever: he scored 13 points in Game 4 on Tuesday, and 21 points on Thursday, all three-pointers.

VanVleet didn’t lose an entire tooth , but his one of his front teeth is significantly chipped. VanVleet sacrificed part of his tooth in Game 4, and Drake offered to Raptors superfan Drake commented on VanVleet ’ s Instagram post: “Damn twin you can use my free health care .” Does VanVleet feel more

Health care in Canada is no joke. When Fred VanVleet gets back to Toronto, the Raptors guard might need to call Drake on his cell phone. During the fourth quarter of Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena on Friday night, VanVleet took an inadvertent elbow to the face from Warriors guard

Another day, another example of Drake loving Canada, even though he might be too rich to understand how our medical system actually works.

Everyone’s favourite Toronto Raptors stan took to Twitter over the weekend to express his appreciation for Fred VanVleet, the trooper of a point guard who took an elbow to the face and lost a part of his tooth in Friday’s playoff game against the Golden State Warriors.

During Friday’s game, cameras captured VanVleet bleeding profusely, and even lingered on the tooth remnant on the ground. He received seven stitches before returning to the bench to watch the Raptors win the game.

NBA commissioner says Drake went over the line in touching coach during game

NBA commissioner says Drake went over the line in touching coach during game TORONTO — NBA commissioner Adam Silver says Drake crossed the line when he treated Toronto coach Nick Nurse to a brief shoulder rub in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final. "Certainly we don't want fans — friend or foe — contacting an NBA coach during a game," Silver said Thursday evening when asked about Drake's behaviour during games. Even though Nurse said he hadn't even noticed the shoulder rub, Silver said "those can lead to dangerous situations.

On Saturday, VanVleet posted a photo to Instagram of the damage done to his face. He’s clearly bruised, with a bandaid under his right eye. Most noticeable, though, is the fact that a huge chunk of his left front tooth is gone.

But, he’s smiling, and his Instagram caption is a jokey reference to how we needs to fix his teeth, along with the laughing-crying emoji. What a good sport!

Enter Drake.

In a since-deleted comment, the rapper made a generous but not altogether practical suggestion: that VanVleet could use Drake’s Canadian health care to get it fixed.

“Damn twin you can use my free health care,” @champagnepapi wrote.

Problem solved!

Unfortunately, for Drake and for the rest of us, dental care is not covered by Canada’s publicly funded health care program. Many schools and employers offer dental benefits, but people who aren’t covered under those plans generally have to pay pricey dental bills out of pocket.

Fred VanVleet nailed a 3-pointer to put his Toronto Raptors up 118-105 on the Golden State Warriors with under two minutes left, essentially serving as a dagger. Right before he got the pass, Kawhi Leonard appeared to have landed after jumping with the ball and should have been called for a travel.

Drake ' s giving Fred VanVleet the ultimate Canadian experience with free health care .

Fred VanVleet is having a hell of an NBA Finals. Fred VanVleet is having a hell of an NBA Finals. The dude has turned into the 3rd best option apparently for the Raptors while defending Steph Curry. I am slightly confused though. Doesn’t Canada have free health care ? Shouldn’t FVV gets that

It was a good suggestion, though. As many people online have pointed out, there’s something of a resemblance between Drake and VanVleet. In the fall of 2017, the rapper even posted a photo on Instagram of himself with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, clarifying that the third person in the photo was in fact him and not a professional athlete.

And a chipped tooth is an exceptionally Canadian injury, given how often it happened to hockey players. This was pointed out to VanVleet after the game, but he didn’t seem particularly enthused by the comparison.

“If that’s what being Canadian is,” he said with a grin, “I’m not sure I want it.”

VanVleet is expected to play in Game 5 on Monday night, although he’ll be wearing a mouthguard this time.

“I’m a gambler. I gambled and sometimes it comes back to bite you in the bu-t,” VanVleet told reporters at the Scotiabank Arena after the team’s practice on Sunday.
