Even Former US president Barack Obama caught the Raptor fever tonight as he makes his way into the Scotiabank Arena just in time for the start of Game 2. Obama was just spotted walking in with the Raptor's President, Masai Ujiri and he's ready to sit courtside and cheer on our local team for the NBA finals.
The Raptors just posted a photo on their Instagram showing Obama walking by the Raptors locker room with a huge smile on his face as the big game draws near. The Raptors made it clear that Obama was on their side tonight, stating, "Presidential business. #WeTheNorth".
While the Golden Warriors are an American team from California, Obama seems to be forgetting his American allegiances for the night to cheer on the North. He's expected to be watching the game from the courtside.
To make matters even better, Twitter users are claiming that Obama has been spotted sitting in Drake's famous courtside seat. While those are some big shoes to fill, Obama will surely be the ultimate fan if he takes over the rappers seat.
While twitter rumors suggest Obama is taking Drake's seats tonight, the Canadian rapper is still expected to show up at tonight's game to cheer on his team. After all, he is their enthusiastic ambassador.
Of course, when Raptors fans heard that the former president would be cheering on the Raptors, Twitter exploded with pride to have Obama on their side of the finals.
Obama was already spotted in Canada early this weekend. Narcity recently reported his sighting in Ottawa on Friday night as he attended a local brewery with Justin Trudeau for a pint of beer and to rekindle their old bromance.
