Video: Raptors fan Drake tries to trash talk Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo
It didn’t take long for Toronto Raptors basketball ambassador Drake to try and get into Giannis Antetokounmpo’s head, as the rapper took the crucial task of trash-talking the Milwaukee Bucks star in the fourth quarter of a closely-contested Game 3.

Just a play before, Antetokounmpo had airballed a free throw, sending Scotiabank Arena into a frenzy, Drake included (yet not featured in the video).
The games didn’t stop as the game went into overtime, as Drake took every possible chance to taunt the MVP candidate, playing a part in the Raptors’ home court advantage.

Antetokounmpo had a game to forget, scoring only 12 points and going 5-of-16 from the floor, including a woeful 2-of-7 from the foul line — shots that could have put the Raptors in a 3-0 hole had they gone in.
While The Greek Freak played a massive role in keeping his team in the game in other areas (23 rebounds, seven assists, four blocked shots), he also had eight turnovers as a result of his aggressive play — yet this attempt to take a charge on a driving Pascal Siakam resulted in Antetokounmpo fouling out of the game after 45 minutes.
Drake didn’t hesitate to start waving goodbye to the Bucks’ talisman, as the crowd followed.

When it comes to trolling, there is certainly no other spectator that comes second to Drake. The Canadian-born rapper really makes the home court advantage felt as the Spike Lee of this generation (when he shows up to games, that is), which ultimately has defined his role as ambassador for the team.
