Drake rocks Dell Curry Raptors jersey to Game 1 of NBA Finals
Drake has outdone himself ahead of Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors.

For those who need a brief refresher, Dell Curry ended his career with the Raptors, playing for the organization from 1999-2002, while a young Steph (and Seth) honed their skills. Steph Curry’s time in Toronto was an early part of his journey toward two-time MVP status.
Drake has been open about his friendship with the younger Curry and teammate Kevin Durant, going as far as to give them extended shoutouts in his song “Free Smoke.” He also called himself “Steph Curry with the shot” in his 2014 hit “0 to 100/The Catch Up”.
During the Finals, Drake’s friendship with Curry and Co., appears to be on hold as the Raptors look to stop the Warriors from winning their third consecutive title, and their fourth championship in five years.
Steph didn’t appear to be too pleased with Drake during the game, however, and this might be a new rivalry worth keeping an eye on:
Drake and Steph having some words before the timeout. Looked friendly, though
