Honestly, I know Drake as the kid in the wheelchair on Degrassi. I am slowly losing all touch with what is MTV-video award worthy.
Now with all that said.....
The biggest issue the Raptors have is the pompous stupidity that the Stephen A. Smith's of the US of A have towards Toronto. If Drake promoting the Raptors can change the perspective among the young basketball players of the US then I am all for it.
I think what T-Mac would have thought as a high school kid coming to Toronto and getting to hang with one of the biggest rap stars in the world today. Honestly, I think that might have changed his perspective on the cold wind or at least made it tolerable.
Now it might seem pretty superficial to be selling Toronto on a rap star but you have to appeal to what interests the players. 20-somethings are likely to be attracted to Drake... for whatever reason beats the hell out of me but whatever. Drake associated with the Raptors has absolutely nothing to do with appealing to the 35+ crowd... absolutely NOTHING.
If Drake brings either Kevin, Love or Durant, to Toronto in 2016 then Drake becomes my idol. I will put this picture in my bedroom, right over my wedding picture:
