It has now been revealed that he chose not to travel due to "security issues."
The controversial and seemingly omnipresent courtside rooter revealed in an Instagram live stream following Game 6 that the NBA asked him not to appear at Oracle Arena in order to avoid any security issues that his presence might have caused.
It was likely for the best, though Drake wasn't able to celebrate the Raptors' first NBA title in franchise history on the court. His antics ruffled the feathers of players, coaches and fans alike throughout the playoffs.
He had beef with seemingly everyone, ranging from the Milwaukee Bucks owner's daughter Mallory Edens to Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green.

Still, fans in Toronto's Jurrasic Park got to celebrate alongside the famed rapper as the Raptors secured their Finals victory in a riveting back-and-forth affair in Game 6.
Just imagine what would have happened at Oracle if he was present...
