Before Game 1 of the NBA Finals series last night between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver confirmed that the league had reached out to Drake about his courtside behaviour. Drake did not give any shoulder rubs last night. But, Drake being Drake, he did find other ways to … spend his energy, reminding us that the best trolls are the most creative ones.
And few are more creative than Drake.
He rolled into the game early, in a signed throwback Dell Curry jersey, LOLOLOLOL.
If you are here, it means you love and celebrate gossip. Gossip is fueled by petty. WHO IS PETTIER THAN DRAKE? And who is BETTER at being petty than Drake?! We are gossips. And Drake gives us life.
All f-cking night he was giving us life. Check him out, using his own signature moves on Klay Thompson.

And then there was the jawing at Draymond Green. You know what cracks me up the most about this? It’s Steph Curry cracking up as he’s walking by. Even Steph knows: this is entertainment!
Steph had his own moment with Drake though, which Drake later shared with everyone on Instagram:
And by the way, that username? “DraymondShouldntWear23”? A legit eBay account created last night, now inactive, but he did actually put that lint up for bidding and, I guess, it sold?
That’s what makes Drake a master among trolls: he puts the WORK into the trolling. He’s the Show Your Work of trolling. This is not about team allegiance – this, purely, is gossip appreciation. If Drake is there, there will be gossip.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
