Drake warned by NBA over bad language at basketball game

Drake warned by NBA over bad language at basketball game

The NBA issued an official warning to Drake about 'the use of bad language, ' according to an article on Thursday by ESPN. Because of that, both the league and the Raptors talked to Drake about the situation with Perkins. After the game, the Cavaliers' security personnel spoke with Drake's bodyguard as the rapper said: "I didn't say shit". A tweet from well-known National Basketball Association reporter Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that Cavs reserve player Kendrick Perkins claims that he was talking with his former teammate Serge Ibaka who is now a member of the Raptors.

He wrote: "The Raptors' global ambassador is becoming a global embarrassment".

Drake normally engages in good-natured banter with opposing players and has been seen smiling while addressing Cleveland star LeBron James. In the clip below, Drake can be heard saying "I never said that shit".

The Raptors hosted Game 2 on Thursday (Friday NZT). Another harsh exchange followed at the end of the game.

"I'm here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers", Perkins told ESPN. The pair traded angry words again following Cleveland's 113-112 overtime win. "I mean, really. If he leaves me alone, I'll leave him alone, and that's all there is". Based on just the first game, and the Drake vs. Perkins near-fight, this series will probably have plenty more drama on the way for fans.
