Toronto Raptors Fined Following Drake Kevin Durant Comments


The ‘Toronto Raptors’ have been fined $25,000 for remarks made by their official ambassador Drake, accusing the performer of breaking a rule put in place by the National Basketball Association.

What went down?

Full story below…

After becoming the Raptors’ global ambassador last year, Drake cost the team the aforementioned amount this week, after the NBA caught wind remarks he made during his ‘OVO Fest’ in Toronto towards Oklahoma City player Kevin Durant.

Billboard Biz explains:

During Drizzy’s OVO Fest in Toronto, the YMCMB rapper gave a shout-out to Oklahoma City Thunder player Kevin Durant, who was in the audience that night. “I just want to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto,”Drake said to thunderous applause. Durant will become a free agent in 2016.

While that’s an innocent enough comment coming from a fan, Drake is no longer just the Raptors’ most famous cheerleader: He’s their official ambassador. So the NBA saw his comments as a recruiting pitch and fined the Raptors $25,000 for violating anti-tampering rules, ESPN reports.

Presumably the rapper will take care to watch his basketball-related comments during future concerts.

    He should have known better. But then again, it’s hard to think straight when you’ve been banging Riwhore.

      Yes, s*** banging can do serious damage to a fella’s mind. Look at what happened Rob after he slid it between Rita’s cheeks.

      Girls like you are the reason people think gay guys only talk about d*** and ass. You’re not cute, you’re not funny and you are b*** ugly which is why you probably spend all day fantasizing about men who will NEVER want you.

    Drake was the one thirsty for the position, he better learn the rules and follow them.

    Also Drakes like the nerd from HS that only got invited to the cool parties and hung around the cool kid’s because he paid for everything.

    He is such a cutie.
    I wonder if they will be adding some more dates. Those concert tickets are mad expensive for amp shows.

    I know Wayne is considered the King of Rap right now by some people but those are amphitheaters.
