Lost in all of the hoopla over the Toronto Raptors actually making their first trip to the NBA Finals was what Drake was wearing while it all went down. The Raptors knocked off the Milwaukee Bucks at home on Saturday night, punching their ticket to the Finals and a matchup with the Golden State Warriors.
Drake has been a centerpiece for the Raptors this postseason, attending all their home games, as a Global Ambassador for a sports franchise is wont to do. He’s even hung around Toronto’s Jurassic Park when the team’s not around, making an appearance on stage at the team’s party outside ScotiaBank during Game 5. It was that game that had some fashion drama, as Mallory Edens, the daughter of a Bucks’ co-owner, wore a Pusha T shirt to troll Drake.
Following Toronto’s Game 5 win, Drake tried to troll right back by changing his Instagram avatar to a picture of Edens and inviting her to OVO Fest via his Instagram story. The battle of celebrity influencers then went to Game 6, where Drake showed up wearing a shirt hoodie that said KAWHI ME A RIVER on the back.
Trolling aside, the more important thing to note here is that the hoodie is actually a homage to Tupac, who wore the 100 Miles hoodie in the 1994 film Above The Rim.
The 100 Miles hoodie is $200 (Canadian) on the company’s website, if you need to steal Drake’s look. Though if you’re a Raptors fan, you probably have some Eastern Conference Championship gear to purchase first.
