The Toronto Raptors Are Hosting 'Drake Night' Even Though He's A Heat Fan

On January 11th, the Toronto Raptors will host the Brooklyn Nets in a battle of two teams that are shockingly heading in different directions. The Nets are currently 10 games below .500 and 2.5 games out of a playoff spot, while the Raptors are sitting pretty as the No. 4 seed with a record of… 13-15. Oh Eastern Conference, you are a delight. While things could easily change by the time these two teams play, the Raptors are going to party like it’s the first round of the playoffs and host “Drake Night” while the Nets are in town.

You see, the Raptors play in Canada and Drake is from Canada, so everyone gets a moose and some hockey sticks. As for Drake, he could possibly attend the game, as the Miami Heat play at Brooklyn on Jan. 10, so once he’s done watching his favorite teams, he could swing by the Air Canada Centre for a LaBatt’s and part of Dave Coulier’s act. This concludes another edition of “Everything I Know About Canada, I Learned From Pop Culture.”
