• The Toronto Raptors and Drake enter into a business partnership, as Toronto’s rebuilding continues

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Sep 30, 2013
    "Today's probably one of the best days of my life," Drake said by phone from Toronto. A lifelong Raptors fan, Drake wants to make the team cool again, and win some games along the way. And though Drake recently made the cable TV rounds to talk up all things sports-y in support of that LP, his top sporting love remains the Toronto Raptors. Dreams that start with Masai Ujiri sabotaging this year's team, continue with Adam Silver rigging his first NBA lottery to give the Raptors Andrew Wiggins, and end with the Raptors bringing back their 1998 jerseys while Wiggins and Jonas Christ Superstar take over the world in, like, 2017. We can do this. Drake can do this? Of course, this means absolutely nothing; but it does lend credibility to the idea that the new personnel chief in Toronto wants Canada’s only NBA franchise to not be relegated to a minor league tier. He'll likely have an accessory more meaningful than even his Grammy - try an all-access pass that should allow him to dodge security and walk into locker rooms all over the NBA.
