Raptors Celebrate ‘Drake Night’ vs. Nets with Old School Unis
“Drake Night” got started right in Toronto, as Drake introduced the Raptors before the game with his best Bill Murray/Will Ferrell effort – and the fans appreciated it.
“He recently got a tattoo of a Swiffer Wet Jet – Amir Johnsonnnnnn!”

Drake is from Toronto and the Raptors reached out to him last season, and his official title is now Global Ambassador for the team. He was more than happy that the Raptors chose to have “Drake Night” against Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Nets. “If there’s anyone I want to beat, it’s the Nets,” Drake told reporters before the game.

Unfortunately, while Drake was being interviewed on the sidelines, he might have inadvertently mentioned the wrong NBA personality.

The team also gave out special “Drake Night” t-shirts and the players donned throwback uniforms with the “Purple Dino” logo.
