During and after Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, rapper and notorious Toronto sports superfan Drake was seen celebrating on the bench with the Raptors team and coaches. The Bucks didn't take too kindly to that.
With the series back in Milwaukee for Game 5, the Bucks decided to strike back in the form of Mallory Edens, the daughter of Wes Edens, who owns the Milwaukee Bucks. She was seen courtside representing Virginia rapper Pusha T, with whom Drake has had a long-standing feud.
The two musicians are extremely public with their dislike for one another other, even taking shots at one another in their songs. That makes Ms. Edens' decision quite a ruthless one. And she did it next to Aaron Rodgers just to be sure the TV cameras would catch her early and often.
With the series tied at two games apiece and a ticket to the NBA Finals waiting to be punched, it's obvious that the emotions are running high-- an energy that is extending beyond the players and coaches and all the way to the fans (and daughters of managing partners).
Because I know you want to know, Bucks co-owner Wes Edens just arrived to his courtside seat, made Mallory move over, and continued his bromance with the quarterback. #NBAPlayoffs pic.twitter.com/49EkjzNFTf— Doug Russell (@DougRussell) May 24, 2019
Well played, Mallory. We won't know who really gets the last laugh until the series is decided, but this fashion choice is an absolute winner.
