The Toronto Raptors Are Back & Drake Is Already Causing Problems (VIDEO)

A player from the other team got in a heated talk with the rapper.

The Toronto Raptors Are Back & Drake Is Already Causing Problems (VIDEO)

The Toronto Raptors kicked off their emotional homecoming with a game against the Wizards on Wednesday night, welcoming back fans for the first time in over a year, and giving Drake the chance to be extra again.

Drizzy, who sat courtside at the game, managed to squeeze a technical foul out of Washington power forward Montrezl Harrell after the player appeared to be having a heated talk with Drake during the first half.

A video of the incident was later shared to Twitter, showing Harrell speaking with the referee while Drake can be seen laughing.

The outburst led to the Raptors getting a free shot, which, given the fact that they were down for most of the game, was probably much appreciated by the team.

According to NBC, Harrell later told reporters that his spat with Drake only got nasty because a nearby coach got involved.

However, it seems that all is well. The 27-year-old player later said, "Me and Drake was laughing. There was no problems there. We even talked after the game."

If Kyle Lowry was the unofficial leader of the Toronto Raptors during his time with the team, then Fred VanVleet is his replacement, and Thursday night's game was a pivotal moment of Freddie taking up the mantle of "head honcho."

Not only did VanVleet put up an impressive 29 points during the Raptors face-off against the Milwaukee Bucks, practically carrying his teammates to victory, he also put his leadership skills to the test.

There are few things more synonymous with the Toronto Raptors than superfan Nav Bhatia, an unheard-of accomplishment for a mere attendee and one set to become a feature film starring Kal Penn.

On Thursday, the Harold & Kumar actor announced via Instagram that he had agreed to produce and star in a biopic entitled Superfan about Bhatia's life.

Drake Sat Courtside Next To A Couple & It Seems Like They Had No Idea Who He Was

Drake later said the older couple were his "new parents."

Drake has a new set of parents in Oklahoma, and their meet-cute story is one for the ages.

On December 1, Drake was sitting courtside at the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. the Houston Rockets game, and an older couple seated beside him seemed to have no clue they were in the presence of a celebrity.

Kawhi Leonard's time with the Raptors might have been brief, but his role in guiding the team to their first NBA Championship has forever cemented his place in the team's history — well that, and the fact that he's a walking, talking meme-machine.

Fred VanVleet, who also became a prominent player during Toronto's 2018-2019 season, appeared to set the record straight about his former teammate's often baffling personality during an appearance on the All The Smoke podcast last month.
