Drake gives shout out to Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard with ‘Kawhi Me A River’ sweatshirt
The Raptors global ambassador — and undoubtedly the team’s biggest celebrity fan — is pulling out all the stops to help the team advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.
This time, the Emmy award-winning rapper wore a “Kawhi me a river” hoodie in Game 6, per Lance Allan of NBC Milwaukee.

Luckily for Drake, those are tears of joy. The Raptors made franchise history by making their first ever NBA Finals appearance.
Drake did a tremendous job in providing Toronto a spark on the sidelines. More importantly, he was instrumental in distracting the Bucks through Games 3 and 4.
Drake is surely bonkers right now with the Raptors’ historic win. After all, not only did they make the Finals but they also defeated the team with the league’s best record.
Just like in Game 5, Milwaukee raced out of the gates firing, leading by 11 after one. However, the Raps chipped away and trimmed the lead to seven heading into the second half. The Bucks threatened to blow the game wide open again in the third, but Toronto went on a huge 22-6 run in the third and fourth quarter.
The Raptors are now set to play the Golden State Warriors in the Finals. Let’s see what Drake will do then.
