Unless the Toronto Raptors manage to pull off the seemingly unlikely by winning the title, the biggest story of this year’s NBA Finals is easily the constant back-and-forth between Raptors superfan Drake and the Golden State Warriors.
In the first two games of the series, Drake took advantage of the Raptors home turf by trolling the Warriors in various ways: Be that either via his various choices of clothing, or by getting right up into the face of Draymond Green to talk more than your average amount of trash.
The man is a pest, no matter what way you look at it. But as it turns out the Warriors have simply been biding their time, waiting for the opportune time to strike back.
With the series now back in Oakland for today’s Game 3, Warriors officials at their home Oracle Arena took pre-game trolling to an entirely different level by using the arena’s extremely large PA system to crank the living hell out of a track from Drake’s chief rival Pusha T.
Not just any track either. We’re talking the Drake diss track The Story of Adidon. You know, the one that put a photo of Drake in minstrel blackface on the cover an and casually confirmed the long-suspected existence of Drake’s secret kid.
