I'm glad they finally told Drake to sit his arse DOWN... especially since this is now the 2ND time the NBA has had to have a talk with him.

Last year, the NBA warned the rapper, who also is a global ambassador for the Raptors, after a confrontation with then-Cleveland Cavaliers center Kendrick Perkins during a playoff series between the Raptors and the Cavs.

CP3 ain't getting traded

Dude's gonna be making 45 million in 2022, ain't nobody touching that contract without a sh*tload of picks

Capela though, might have a taker somewhere. Ain't too overpaid for somebody to want him

I’m enjoying them being on that high class treadmill right now.

To me that's just the NBA paying too much attention to the haters and being soft.

Drake will be lit AF tomorrow. So will Jurassic Park, because it's being expanded.

Raps ownership has also given permission to every Canadian city to host their own Jurassic Park(s) across the country. And Cineplex Theatres, will be having free big screen viewings too, coast to coast. I think the NBA will realize finally how good this will be for ratings, even when 50% of the Canadian views and all the streaming views don't count.

I'm rooting for the Warriors, but I'm loving what Toronto, and Canada on the whole is doing with their support. It's really enjoyable to see fans legitimately happy and enjoying themselves while they are cheering their squad on with everything they have.

Thank you, we appreciate that. I am so grateful to be apart of the experience, and witness Jurassic Park in June. Everyone will be sending the Raps their energy across the country.

Imagine how Toronto fans are times 10. That’s how NYC would be of the Knicks even touch the conference finals.

I disagree!

The NBA had to make this statement. Otherwise, every Tom, Dick, and Harry might suddenly feel they can be on the court, in the path of the players, massaging a coach while he's trying to work, etc. just like Drake.

The league already has a rule for this, so it was necessary for them to enforce it. And, as I said before, Drake needs to sit his arse down!!

I really don't want to see Drake in focus of one single camera shot this series. Moron. Putting him on the screen is what's actually ridiculous. I want to see basketball - who cares what this pile of **** likes or roots for.

I think they really should talk to ABC about not giving him the spotlight. It's not good for entertainment or my mood.

But since that's not gonna happen, at least they shouldn't show him on TV.

With good young players and a crap load of cap space, that time will come sooner rather than later for the Knicks.

i think drake just needs to be seated and not interrupt the sideline. otherwise, he can be as obnoxious as he wants if he's not physically altering the game or being inappropriate with his language. :dontknow:

moving drake because he's too distracting alone would set a bad precedent. when he's interfering with the sideline activity, that's a problem. and in that last game, he looked to have toned that part down.
