Well, that explains why Drake never took his act on the road during the playoffs.
During the Toronto Raptors playoff run, rapper Drake could be seen at just about every home game jumping around court-side and having a good time as he taunted the opposition and gave his team all the praise.
He never went on the road, especially during the NBA Finals and that was because the league asked him not to do so.
“The NBA reached out to Drake and asked him not to travel to Oakland for any of the NBA Finals games at Oracle Arena due to “security concerns,” multiple sources tell TMZ Sports.
We’re told the league expressed concern about potentially angry Warriors fans doing something stupid like taunting Drake or throwing stuff at him … which wouldn’t just put Drake at risk, but also other people sitting near him.
Drake’s dad Dennis Graham provided more of an explanation about the “security issues” when we saw him out at Delilah in L.A. after the Raptors won the championship … suggesting some Warriors fans might’ve been holding a grudge for all of Drake’s sideline antics during the Finals.”
You just never know how fans will react, and after some Raptors fans treated Sonya and Dell Curry like crap at the team hotel, there might’ve been some Warriors who wanted to get a little payback and use Drake as a means to do it.
