Drake Rumors

When the Raptors went to Drake — the team’s “Global Ambassador” — and asked him during which game he wanted to hold “Drake Night,” his choice was easy. “If there’s anybody I want to beat, it’s the Nets,” the rapper said before the Raptors went out and did just that, 105-89, at Air Canada Center on Wednesday night. “I had some conversations with the guys and asked them to overdo it for me,” he continued with a smile. “I got to choose which game was going to be ‘Drake Night’ this year, and I felt like this was the one.”
Demar Derozan is one of the most talented and important pieces of the 2014-2015 Toronto Raptors, who currently have the league’s best record at 12-2. Drake, the team’s global ambassador, also has a tight relationship with many of the players, even the newly arrived Lou Williams, who was just named the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player Of The Week. While on the NBA TV Fan Night Pre-Game show discussing Drake’s relationship with the Raptors with Chris Webber, Derozan mentioned that Drake said he’d give Derozan a copy of his mixtape, Derozan says is “coming out in January.”
You were at OVO. What’d you think of what Drake did at the end of his set with KD? Patrick Patterson: Ha, that was funny. It was cool. I know Drake, the whole OVO crew, Toronto, Canada, they would love to have Kevin Durant there. It’d be a great piece to this culture that we’re trying to create in order to win and be successful. I’d love it if Kevin Durant came, I’m not going to say I wouldn’t. That’d be a great piece, that’d be a great player to have. I thought it was fun, it was entertaining, the fans loved it. Kevin probably loved it as well, I think I saw a tweet about him saying, “Shout out to Drake, I love the 6,” something like that. It was definitely entertaining. It was a smart move on Drake’s part.
In the second installment of his YouTube web series #REALDMC, Mobile native Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins gets an assist from multi-platinum rapper Drake in his campaign to be voted to play in the 2014 NBA All-Star game in New Orleans. Cousins is seen chopping up it up with Drake, whose latest album “Nothing Was the Same’ debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 when it was released in late September, backstage at on the Sacramento date on the rapper’s “Would You Like a Tour’ show on Nov. 18th. “Listen, I wanna let y’all know something,” Drake says to in front of a crowd of adoring fans. “You wanna know why I was looking forward to coming to Sacramento, really? Other than all of y’all of course, but, I’mma let y’all know. My brother, he goes by the name of Demarcus Cousins, that’s my dog for life.”

DeMarcus Cousins has some friends in high places, Grammy-award winning rapper Drake being one of them. Cousins first met the Canadian-born musician during his lone season at Kentucky and the two have been tight ever since. In fact, when his last tour stopped over at UC Davis a year and a half ago, Drake caught a game courtesy of the Sacramento Kings starting center. Last week, the platinum-selling artist was back in the Sacramento area, this time performing at Sleep Train Arena and Cousins was in attendance. If you missed the show, Cousins documented his experience for his new web series being delivered on his official YouTube Channel. You can watch the video below.
