Raptors crowd brings blown up Drake heads to distract Giannis Antetokounmpo
Toronto Raptors fans are pulling off all the stops to help their Raps advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.
With international superstar Drake doing his best in heckling the Bucks on the sidelines, Raptors fans decided to use him as well in the form of massive Drake head cutouts.
Take a look at the scene in Toronto below as they try to distract Giannis Antetokounmpo from the free-throw line.

In a way, Drake was instrumental in the Raptors’ previous two wins in Toronto in Games 3 and 4. The Emmy award-winning rapper was his raucous self on the sidelines looking to get in the head of The Greek Freak.
Unfortunately for Toronto and the home supporters, the massive Drake heads seems to have no effect against Milwaukee. The Bucks were on fire from downtown in the first half as they surged to an 11 point lead in the first quarter. They then threatened to blow things wide open in the first half, leading by as much as 15 points, before the Raptors trimmed the lead to seven heading into the intermission.
The Raptors have never made the NBA Finals in their 24 years of existence. This is the farthest they have made in franchise history, and also the first time they ever won three games in the conference finals.
The defending champion Golden State Warriors await on who they will face in the NBA Finals on May 30.
