Drake is the MVP of the NBA Finals (According to Drake)
Alex Myers discusses the epic trolling by the entertainer on behalf of his beloved Toronto Raptors—and why it will backfire.
Released on 6/4/2019
So it only two games of the NBA finals
to establish who the MVP of the series will be,
no matter how it ends.
Okay, Drake isn't a player.
But he's the most valuable person in these games.
At least, according to Drake.
Or maybe it's just most valuable pest?
Look, I'm not here to knock Drake as an artist.
A colleague of mine did that once
and got absolutely shredded on social media.
But seriously, could this guy insert himself
into the action anymore than he already does?
He's so annoying!
Let's start with the constant pep talks
Drake gives Raptors coach, Nick Nurse.
Or should I say, assistant coach.
Instead of Drake's We The North hoodie,
he should rock a We The Coach shirt.
The dude thinks he's John Wooden out there.
Although, I don't remember hearing about John Wooden
jawwing with his opponents following a win.
After game one, Drake got into it
with Warrior star, Draymond Green, and called him trash.
Not only is Drake messing with an NBA dynasty,
but he's basically poking an actual bear in Draymond Green.
After game two, President Obama
even asked Drake if he behaved himself.
Of course, Drake wasn't quite as chatty
that night because his Raptors lost.
But he did get called a bum ass by Klay Thompson.
Bum ass, now that's funny.
So is the fact that one sportsbook
offered 15 Drake-related prop bets
before the NBA finals started.
So when Klay said, See you in the Bay, Aubrey
you can actually bet on whether Aubrey, aka Drake,
will show up to any of the games in Oracle Arena.
Talk about the lock of the century.
Then there's Drake's back-and-forth with Kevin Durant.
Golden State's injured star was still sitting out
for game two, so naturally, Drake wore
a Home Alone where's Kevin shirt.
Okay, so that's pretty funny too.
But I bet he didn't find it funny
when Durant chirped at him after the game.
Let sleeping Durants lie, Drake.
By the way, Drake has a tattoo of Durant's jersey number
and Stephen Curry's jersey number on his arm.
You know, because he's the biggest
bandwagon fan of sports history.
He smartly covered those up with a wristband, though,
when he wore a Dell Curry Raptors jersey to game one.
I gotta give Drake credit for all his efforts.
This level of trolling seems exhausting.
But the trolling hasn't stopped there.
In fact the biggest and best dagger
of the finals was delivered by New Balance.
Yes, the company that makes running shoes for old people.
I have a pair, because I'm old, hence the cardigan.
Anyway, New Balance also sponsors old soul, Kawhi Leonard,
who by the way, is the actual MVP of the Raptors.
And they placed this giant billboard on an Oakland freeway
warning that the king of the north was coming.
Imagine being a Golden State fan stuck in traffic
on your way to work, and seeing that?
Well played, New Balance.
Hey, it could've been worse, Warriors fans.
It could've been a billboard of Drake
declaring himself the king of the north.
