Drake changed his Instagram profile picture to the Bucks owner’s daughter after Raptors’ Game 5 win
World-famous rapper Drake has been omnipresent at Toronto Raptors home games for years now (well, especially since they’ve been really good), and he was also in the news of late when Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer lamented the rapper’s courtside behavior in the Raptors’ win at home against the Bucks in Game 4.
Not unexpectedly, Drake responded by saying that the Bucks should, you know, try to win the game in order to shut him up on the sidelines.
As the series shifted back to Game 5, Drake hosted a watch party in Toronto that went wild after Kawhi hit a huge triple in the second half. Before the game started, however, Drake was a topic of conversation in absentia because the daughter of one of Milwaukee Bucks’ owners, Mallory Edens, was seen sporting a Pusha T t-shirt in the front row of Fiserv Forum for Game 5.
Of course, this was a direct shot at Drake, who participated in a feud with the New York-based rapper due to Pusha T’s searing diss track aimed at Drake “The Story of Adidon.” Edens wearing that shirt in Game 5 was aimed at Drake, and he made sure to keep the receipts after the Raptors pulled out a massive win on the road.
Ever the troll, Drake opted to change his profile picture to Mallory Edens herself after the Raps took care of business in Game 5 – making a closeout game on the Raps’ home floor possible in Game 6:

“The Drake Curse” in sports has often been discussed, but perhaps the Bucks should’ve been careful to not invoke the wrath of the Toronto icon.
