The Cavaliers took down Raptors in Game 6 on Friday night, eliminating Toronto and sending Cleveland back to their second consecutive NBA Finals. That was bad news for Drake — arguably the Raptors’ most notable fan and the team’s lead trash-talker during the Eastern Conference Finals.
When you sit courtside, you always have to be wary of your trash talk being sent right back in your direction. With Drake seated on the floor for Game 6, LeBron James — a popular target for the rapper’s smack talk during the series — gave him the business after a big dunk in the first half.
All Drake could do was quietly drink his drink.
Then, after the game, the rapper got hit with a shot from an unlikely assailant — “Lil Kev.” You may remember him as the Tommy Bahamas advertisement that the Cavs adopted thanks to its model’s striking resemblance to Kevin Love. Now with an official verified Instagram account, Lil Kev is a master trash talker.
“Only view in the six is the @cavs in the finals @champagnepapi”
That is an absolutely brutal jab from a magazine advertisement. Ouch.
It’s worth noting that, for all the smack he unleashed, Drake was pretty classy in taking the L.
