Drake Is Relentlessly Trolling the Golden State Warriors

The trash talk was flying throughout the Toronto Raptors' first finals win
Drake Is Relentlessly Trolling the Golden State Warriors
Ahead of his Toronto Raptors playing in their first-ever NBA Finals series, Drake was given a reminder from the league about fan etiquette in the wake of last round's sideline celebrations. However, the warning did little to deter the MC from antagonizing the Golden State Warriors from his courtside seats last night (May 30).

Drake set the tone for the evening from the moment he walked into Scotiabank Arena, arriving in an autographed Dell Curry Raptors jersey. Curry — who played three seasons for the Raptors between 1999 and 2002 — is the father of Warriors point guard Steph Curry. Naturally, the outfit choice prompted some smack talk between Drake and the younger Curry during a TV timeout, with a broadcast clip catching the rapper picking something out of Curry's hair while chatting courtside.

In an Instagram post following the game, Drake revealed that he had picked a piece of lint from Curry's head, joking that the thread is "for sale on my eBay right now" under the profile "Draymond ShouldntWear23." The eBay joke has since inspired a litany of internet comedians listing pieces of fluff on the auction site.

The younger Curry wasn't the only target of Drake's trash talk. After Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson revealed that he would be skipping the rapper's "soft R&B songs" on his pre-game playlists earlier this week, Drake hit him with a "Hotline Bling" dance move in the wake of picking up a technical foul. Even after the final horn, Drake made sure to share choice words with Warriors power forward Draymond Green. An exchange between the two saw the rapper smile sweetly at Green before calling him trash. In his post-game press conference, Green assured reporters that the smack talk was nothing serious. The Toronto Raptors took the first game of the 2019 NBA finals by a score of 118-109. Game 2 is set for Sunday (June 2).
