It looks like the NBA had no affect on warning Drake about his courtside behaviour. The Raptors won their first game in the NBA finals last night and Drake won the competition for the most smack talk during a game. Not only did he wear Stephen Curry's father, Dell Curry's, old Raptors Jersey, but his trash talking was in full force yesterday. There are mixed feeling about Drake's behaviour, especially for non-Raptors fans, but Drake fans think it's hilarious that Drake brought his rivalry with the Warriors to Instagram.
Drake started off the evening strutting into The Scotiabank Arena like he owned the place. He proudly flashed everyone his retro purple Raptors jersey with the name Curry and number 30 printed on it. Everyone thought that would be the most shade Drake was throwing last night, considering he'd just been warned about his behaviour. It seemed that way for a while, especially because he wasn't pacing courtside like he usually is.
We were all wrong. Curry seemed to be the hot pick of the night for some Drake drama. During the game, Drake and Curry were seen talking smack courtside and Drake later posted the video of it on his Instagram. He captioned it, "Steph Curry hair lint for sale on my eBay right now!!! username: DraymondShouldntWear23." The hair lint comment is referencing Drake looking like he took something out of the basketball players hair during their confrontation.
In his caption, he also mentioned another warrior player, Draymond Green, who he also had a riff with yesterday. After the Raptors win, Drake immediately pounced on the player and called him "Trash."
Fans on Twitter thought this was hilarious and even went as far as to create memes out of Drake. See the tweets below.

We didn't think it was possible for the Raptors playing in the NBA finals to get anymore interesting-but Drake has swept in and is making this basketball journey even more exciting for Raptors fans.
