Drake became a global ambassador for The Raptors in 2013 and has been seen on the sidelines of many games, on occasion getting told off for getting too animated during the match.
“This is poetic, you just gotta watch it happen,” Drake said in an emotional interview after the game. “The 6 in six, Kyle Lowry with the ring, Kawhi Leonard bringing in chips to the city… I want my chips with the dip, that’s all I know.”
“We did this off of heart, we did this off of love. We willed this into existence. We manifested this,” he declared. He also invited the internet to “make memes out of this.” Watch the footage of the interview, as captured by NBA Canada editor Carlan Gay:
