Toronto Raptors super fan and rapper Drake had a lot of fun watching his team in the NBA Finals, and throughout the series he drew plenty of attention for his displays of emotion in the stands and social media antics taking digs at the Golden State Warriors.
But after the Raptors’ triumph in Game 6 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Drake showed there weren’t any hard feelings between him and the Warriors.
He called Warriors star Steph Curry at the end of the night, and a video captures the two FaceTiming as the two-time MVP walked out of the arena.
The conversation was friendly and the two poked a little fun at one another.
Curry says with a laugh that he’s surprised to see Drake is already wearing a Raptors champions hat and the rapper says he had it made.
“Enjoy it man,” Curry responds. “It’s big time for you, the whole city, the whole everybody. You all deserve it man, congrats.”
Drake, who has tattoos honoring both Curry and Kevin Durant on his body, made it clear he has lost no respect for the Warriors stars after doing battle with his hometown Raptors.
“Na it’s love,” Drake says. “I’m going to see you this summer brother. Listen, love. You talk to KD right?”
At the end of the chat, Drake also tells Curry to send a message to the injured Klay Thompson as well.
“Much love,” Drake says to Curry. Tell Klay even though he called me a p—- the other day that it’s all good, I’m going to let it slide.”
After seeing Klay Thompson’s injury in Game 6, Drake was spotted shaking his head and putting his head into his hand after pointing at his knee. The moment was captured on video by Canada’s The Sports Network.
