If there’s anyone who knows the way to make an entrance, it’s Champagne Papi, yet, he didn’t expect to become the focus of a post-game news conference . By now, we all know just what proportion of a basketball fan Drake is—specifically of his home team, the Toronto Raptors—and the celebrated rapper has formed close relationships with almost every player within the NBA. The Raptors took a convert the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday (March 24), and through the post-game news conference , Kyle Lowry spoke about the “weird” place he’s in with trade rumors abounding.
The Raptors point guard is about to become an unrestricted free agent during the off-season and he was sharing with reporters how he felt about the direction of his career. During the intimate news conference , Lowry received a FaceTime call from Drake and rather than ignoring it, he answered ahead of everyone.
“You guys, we’ve a special guest here,” said Lowry as he delayed Drake’s face on his phone. The Rap mogul joked, “I just want to understand if you guys—I’m here to translate. I’m his translator.” Lowry quickly laughed and said, “No you’re not!” before the 2 gave their goodbyes until a later time. Although his time with the Raptors could also be coming to an end, Lowry is decided that his future is bright.
“I’m not the tallest, I’m not the foremost athletic, I’m not the fanciest, but I play hard and it’s got me an extended way by playing hard,” he said. “I pride myself on being one among the toughest basketball players out there.”
