When it comes to spreading a message, nobody seems to be doing it better than Drake.
With plenty of cameras on him whenever he’s been courtside at a Raptors game during these playoffs, the Toronto rapper and music producer has used his clothing throughout the NBA Finals to fire darts at members of the Golden State Warriors.
After repping a classic Dell Curry Raptors jersey to Game 1 of the series to rub some dirt in Steph’s face on Thursday night, Drake switched his attention to Kevin Durant, who has yet to make an appearance in the series while recovering from a calf injury.

Connecting Mr. Durant to Kevin McCallister of ‘Home Alone’ is a simple but clever move. Furthermore, it’s no secret that the Internet loves actor Macaulay Culkin (who recently changed his middle name to Macaulay Culkin to officially make his full name Macaulay Macaulay Culkin Culkin).
Durant — a four-time regular season scoring champion and ten-time All Star — hasn’t been on the hardwood since Game 5 of the Warriors’ second-round clash with the Houston Rockets in early May. Rumours have swirled that he’ll be back for either Game 3 or Game 4 of the NBA Finals, which would completely change this battle for the NBA championship.
Having seen Drake’s threads, Culkin gave the sweater a tip of the cap on Twitter and Instagram. Well, ah, at least we think he did.
Following the Raptors’ 109-104 loss, a defeat that has evened up the NBA Finals at one game apiece, Drake was seen leaving Scotiabank Arena wearing a different sweater.

Considering Golden State grabbed Game 2 without him, avoiding any discussion involving ‘Kevin’ was probably a good idea. Drake avoiding discussions with Kevin though, well, that didn’t happen.
