Bucks HC Mike Budenholzer says ‘there’s no place’ for Drake to be going out on the court
Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer says “there’s no place” for Toronto Raptors ambassador and rapper Drake to be going out on the court.
In Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Drake talked a lot of trash to Bucks superstar swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo. Drake was also on the Raptors sideline in Game 4 and rubbed the shoulders of Raptors head coach Nick Nurse.
Drake was a hot topic of conversation on today’s conference call with Mike Budenholzer. He said, in part, “There’s certainly no place for fans — or whatever Drake is for the raptors — on the court. There’s boundaries and lines for a reason.”

The Bucks lost Games 3 and 4 in Toronto. The series is now tied at 2-2, with Game 5 back in Milwaukee.
Nothing is going to stop Drake from being the obnoxious fan he is. Giannis and the Bucks just have to ignore him and focus on the game. Milwaukee had a chance to win Game 3, but they didn’t look like the best team in the NBA in Game 4.
Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe has been MIA since the first round of the playoffs. He’s shooting just 35.0 percent from the field and 18.6 percent from beyond the arc over his last nine games in the postseason. Milwaukee needs more from him if they want to advance to the NBA Finals.
Drake won’t be at Game 5 in Milwaukee. The Bucks have only lost once at home in the playoffs, so some home cooking is what this team needs right now.
