Drake’s got some splainin’ to do
Barring a valiant, borderline miraculous effort, the Toronto Raptors are likely not going to make it out of the first round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year, and it is very much–in large part–Paul Pierce‘s fault. Gone are his dominant 40+ point takeover games, but Pierce has anchored the Washington Wizards’ offensive attack and come up with clutch second half performances, helping the Wiz to take a 2-0 lead home for games 3 and 4 in Washington.
A photograph of Drake dapping up Pierce–who was an integral part of the Brooklyn Nets team that eliminated the Raptors in a decisive Game 7 in Toronto just a year ago-following the Raptors’ Game 2 loss has made its rounds on the internet, and Raptors fans are none too happy with their global ambassador. One Raptor fan of note took specific offense to the handshake: a Toronto politician. And there was nothing left up to (mis)interpretation.
