Post#1 Raptors Players Don't Like Drake
Tue Jan 28, 2014 11:56 am by IvanIV

So I heard from a "plugged-in" friend of mine that the Raptors players don't particularly care for our new Global Ambassador. According to my friend's text message:

"The raps hate him and complained that he hangs out after games with his dumb forest hill friends and wanna hang with him"

I can't identify my source, but this guy really is somewhat credible (despite the barely coherent text message). I thought this was pretty funny and thread worthy. Mods, if you disagree, feel free to lock. But if this comes out in the media, remember your boy IvanIV broke the story!

It's already been out there. Aapparently if they win the next 5 games, they can be Drake free for a while.

Oh. Well, even though the Raptors think he's an annoying d-bag, I'm sure he'll attract some marquee free agents!

Naa... I think I know who your source is. If it's who I think it is, the guy is a known hater.

Most of the raps players look up to Drake, listen to his music and play harder in his presence (see: the Dallas game)

Please indicate your source, what he does and how you know him and we will decide if real. Otherwise these are just rumors. From what I have seen Amir Johnson and Drake are close friends.

Casey is hoping the removal of Drake will help the team as many of the players have explained that playing to the song "Fancy" every night has bordered on a traumatic experience.

I believe that is the story OP is referring to. Seems like some phony mock article though.

I find it hard to believe the stories of the players "looking up" to Drake. I think once you meet a guy, the sheen comes off and you see he's just another guy. And you might very well get along with the guy, or you might not. Probably somewhere in the middle.

It would be no different than how the players feel about each other. Some guys get along well. Others tolerate. You see the guys like Landry and Novak hanging together, and Lowry, DeMar, Amir together. It's probably like that with Drake and his buddies.

Reaching. The raptor players dont need to like him. This is a business. Drake is a part of the organization there is no reason for them to not like him. You act as if Drake is some sort of threat to a basketball player. Is he going to take minutes from Vasquez? Lol I dont see any reason why they would like or dislike him. Stupid post IVAN and tell you so called "source" to identify himself as we already know that he is YOU.

I swear to god it's not me! You can't just make up a text message like that and pretend someone else wrote it. It's just the right amount of stupid.
