It's no secret that Drake is a diehard NBA fan. No fake love in that. You've seen his viral reaction during the intense play-in tournament classic between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors. Now, it's his son Adonis, who's a LeBron James fan, that has gone viral for his reaction.
It had nothing to do with the Lakers' defeat to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday though.
Drake had his son by his side during his acceptance speech at the Billboard Music Awards after being named Artist of the Decade, and poor three-year-old Adonis got a little stage fright, clinging to his dad and crying the entire time. Aww shucks.

Adonis should get used to the spotlight real quick as Drake is expected to attend more games in the NBA Playoffs. The multi-awarded rapper recently introduced his adorable son to LeBron, showing him videos of The King's highlights. And just like other young fans, Adonis was totally mesmerized.
Drake had to put his son onto some of @KingJames' best highlights 👑

With his home team Toronto Raptors not in the NBA Playoffs, Drake might cheer for the Lakers the rest of the way. After all, it's his son's favorite team now. But yeah, as the whole world knows, Drake can be a little bit of a fair-weathered fan.
LeBron James and the Lakers lost to the Suns in Game 1 of their first round matchup. So a suggestion to Drake: Don't let Adonis watch a replay of the game. He might be in his feelings and shed even more tears. Not good, er, God's plan.
