Toronto Raptors super fan and rapper Drake could be seen grimacing and shaking his head after seeing Klay Thompson’s injury in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
The rapper was watching the game in Toronto and grimaced, pointed to his knee and then put his head in hand and started shaking it after Thompson injured his knee in the third quarter of the game. A few seconds later he stood up and started clapping, likely out of respect for Thompson who was being helped off of the court.
The moment was captured on video by Canada’s The Sports Network.
Drake, for all of his trolling of the Warriors during the NBA Finals, hasn’t enjoyed seeing the Warriors injury woes throughout the series. He could be seen consoling Kevin Durant after the Warriors forward ruptured his right Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the Finals.
The loss of the star players must weigh heavy on the rapper, who has tattoos dedicated to Durant and Steph Curry on his arm.
After Thompson’s injury, he was ruled out for the rest of the pivotal Game 6.
