  • I gotta admit, I loved this when it happened on TV, and I love it more now that it's totally under every Bucks players skin ... they wanted a massage from Drake ...

      meh, even Nurse did not seem amused, it's kinda belittling to him imo.
      I'm softening my stance on Drake since he hasn't appeared "on-mike" too drunk lately but seriously, stay in front of your seat, not up and down the sidelines like you're a coach, cheer like a super-fan and don't amp up the opposition when you're not the one who has to back it up on the floor.

            Geez, everyone was so good in this one. Pascal had a rough night, Green was just OK, but everyone else was awesome.

            I think people giving out the three stars are ignoring Kawhi a bit much - his offence was only decent in this one, but man alive his defence... The job he is doing on Giannis is unbelievable. Mind-blowing defensive performance the past two games. This is the big difference maker in this series - if Kawhi can continue this defensive impact, and we get any shooting at all from the supporting cast, the series starts to look pretty good.
            Maybe, Kawhi was also effective in finding open teammates when the Bucks D would swarm him. My take is who played / contributed at both ends at a level that was much higher than expectations or their typical contribution. Fred too also played well - finally making some shots. Given the expectation as the measuring tool, I will stick with Kyle, Norm and the centre combo of Marc / Serge as the three stars.

                How is being Nurses' personal hype man belittling him? C'mon man, lighten up. Lol Drake has his own locker in the locker room, so let's not pretend he's just some regular fan. Did you not see Drake slapping fives with the players as they came off after subs, and even with Nurse at one point? The players love it from what I can tell, and maybe it even gives them a little boost; which would make more sense to me than amping up the opposition. Especially after what we've seen with him going HAM against Embiid the 76ers and we ran them out of the building, and now the Bucks.

                    I don't think he cares about that stuff though. I think he'd rather be playing now (unlike say, Durant) then having locked down 1st Team anything.

                      As a Raptors / NBA Basketball fan I do not particularly mind Drake's unabashed enthusiasm for the Raptors, however, I believe he sometimes crosses the line between being a celebrity super-fan and the teams personal space. The shoulder rub is a no-no. It was not invited nor IMO appreciated by the Coach. Like mentioned above, the cheering, standing, gestures are great, just keep it within reasonable distance from your seat. Any other fan who would touch a player / coach in such an unsolicited manner would be tossed.

                        Yeah its fun to see an actual fan having actual fun, refreshing to see someone not take themselves too serious.

                          Agreed. When you know your the best defender in the league you dont need people to tell you.

                            Pretty much my take as well.
                            And the fact that he's just seeking the camera now, instead of the mike for some drunken slobbering

                            • Fun factoid:
                              Tuesday marked only the second time the Bucks lost back-to-back games this season.
