Drake, a Toronto native, serves as the Toronto Raptors' global ambassador. After the Raptors went up 2-0 against the Washington Wizards in the first rounds of the playoffs, Drake was riding high.
The rap superstar told Wizards point guard John Wall he would have the broom ready for a series sweep.
John Wall said Drake told him he was going to show up to Game 3 in D.C. with a broom, but he didn't. Wall said he is not listening to any Drake during this series, says he hasn't heard 'Nice For What.'— Chase Hughes (@ChaseHughesNBCS) April 23, 2018
However, Drake was absent from both the following games in Washington, and the Wizards have since evened the series 2-2 behind Wall's leadership and scoring. Wall averaged 27.5 points and 14.0 assists in those two games.
Drake was trash talking the Wizards from the sidelines during the first two games in Toronto, and he will have the opportunity to get in Washington's heads again when Game 5 tips off on Wednesday.
While Wall is boycotting all of Drake's music during the series, the two's rivalry remains amicable.
