Video: Raptors Ambassador Drake clowns Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo at the free throw line
Renowned Canadian rapper and songwriter Drake continues to make headlines…but not because of his songs.
Drake has been making waves with his antics while watching Toronto Raptors games in the 2019 NBA Playoffs, and that continued in Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The 32-year-old artist was seen trolling Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo during the third quarter of Game 4 of the Raptors-Bucks series. He laughed and mocked Giannis when he missed his first free-throw — drawing jeers from the hostile crowd at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

Later in the game, Drake was also seen massaging the shoulders of Raptors coach Nick Nurse.
Fortunately for him, the Raptors ran away with a 120-102 win to recover from their stinging defeats in the first two games and to tie the series at 2-2.
Kyle Lowry led the Raptors with 25 points and six assists, Kawhi Leonard ended up with 19 points, while Marc Gasol finished up with 17 points and seven dimes. Serge Ibaka was also a huge factor in Game 4, providing a massive boost off the bench with 17 points and 14 boards in 24 minutes.
Norman Powell took a share of the spotlight, as he ended up with 18 points and five rebounds. Fred VanVleet added 13 for the Raptors, who will look to sustain their momentum when they travel to Milwaukee for Game 5.
