Drake is getting roasted for his awkward interview with reporters after the Raptors won the NBA championship

Drake is getting roasted for his awkward interview with reporters after the Raptors won the NBA championship Drake gave quite a speech to reporters after the Toronto Raptors won their first NBA championship in franchise history. It was clearly an emotional night for Drake, and after the final buzzer sounded, the Canadian superstar celebrated as if he were a part of the team. At one point, Drake was asked by a reporter about the win, and he launched into something of a spoken-word free-association exercise about his emotions and "chips," a sports slang for championships. "I want my chips with a dip, that's all I know," Drake was sure to emphasize. "I don't want my chips plain, I want my chips with a dip.

The Raptors beat the Warriors 114-110 in a tight Game 6 last Thursday night, marking their first-ever NBA Championship.

Since the beginning of the finals, Drake, 32, has been a courtside mainstay in support of the Canadian team — so much so, in fact, that the NBA had to have a discussion with him about his behavior at games after the rapper gave Raptors coach Nick Nurse a shoulder rub during a game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP “The league office had conversations directly with Drake and his manager, and I think we ended up in a good place,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver told reporters after Game 1 of the Finals, according to ESPN.

“I think in the case of Drake, as I’ve said before, I mean, we certainly appreciate his superfan status, and I know he’s beloved in the community of Toronto,” he added. “I think certainly we don’t want fans, friend or foe, contacting an NBA coach during a game. I think that even as Nick Nurse later said, I didn’t even realize it was Drake or hardly was aware that I was being touched, and I think those can lead to dangerous situations.”

Toronto police seek 4th person in Raptors rally shooting.
Police are looking for a fourth person and haven't recovered the gun involved in a shooting at a rally for the NBA champion Raptors that wounded four people and sent thousands fleeing, authorities said Tuesday. Toronto Police Chief Marc Saunders said they are looking for a male who was wearing a white button down T-shirt at Monday's shooting at city hall square, less than a block from where the players and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sat on stage. Police arrested three people who are now facing firearm charges, but the shell casings at the scene didn't match two guns seized. Droves of Raptors fans stampeded from the site.
