There was no shortage of drama last night at the Toronto Raptors playoff game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tristan Thompson was booed relentlessly by Raptors fans, and people were shouting Khloe Kardashian's name at him to mess up his game. But, Drake's scrap with a Cavs player is the major highlight. Especially because the player is literally twice Drake's size.
Drake, the ambassador of the Toronto Raptors, and Cavaliers player Kendrick Perkins started chirping each other in the first half, which quickly escalated into a shouting match. Drizzy reportedly called Perkins a "f***ing p***y" after the game ended, and security stepped in when Perkins tried to get in his face.
But, Perkins claims that Drake started the whole thing. In a text to an NBA insider at ESPN, Perkins said that he was talking to Serge Ibaka, his old teammate who now plays for the Raptors. Perkins told Ibaka at halftime that the Cavaliers were going to win, which apparently offended Drake so much that he started "talking sh*t."
Even though Drake has the whole city of Toronto on his side, he still took a pretty big risk. Kendrick Perkins is 6'10 and 270 pounds. Drake is 11 inches shorter and almost 100 pounds lighter than him. Luckily, there was a swarm of security guards around to keep the situation under control.

Drake didn't seem to have anything against LeBron James, though. At one point, Drake made eye contact with LeBron from his designated court side seat and the two of them burst out laughing. Even in the midst of his yelling match with Perkins, we're glad he was still having a good time.
