Drake Totally Loses It At Raptors Game In Canada

VIDEO: Kendrick Perkins Gets Into It With Raptors Superfan Drake

Kendrick Perkins was seen trading barbs with rap superstar Drake, who is also the Raptors' global ambassador, at halftime and again at the end of the game. And with rapper Drake being a hardcore Toronto Raptors fan, it was only a matter of time before he entered the fray as well seeing as his Raptors are now in the second round against the Cavaliers. "I wasn't talking to (Drake)", Perkins told ESPN. Apparently, that's when Drake intervened and started trash talking back.

Before the Cavs squeaked their way past the Raptors in an overtime thriller, tempers flared between Drake and Perkins at halftime.

"I was fucking with Serge, my old teammate", Perkins said after the game.

Perkins didn't play in Game 1.

Perkins didn't hear exactly what he said, ESPN adds, but he knew it was something slick, and he responded to Drake with, "Sit you're a** down and watch the game". "So I said something back to him".

It was left to Drake to explain what he had said to rile up Perkins and the rapper did so via a comment on an Instagram post late on Tuesday night.

Drake was reportedly overheard yelling "You're a bum!' at Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. during the Raptors" first-round series.

Perkins and Drake continued barking at each other following Cleveland's 113-112 victory, which resulted in several bodyguards intervening. "I just said I like the hem on his capris", he wrote.
