NBA Issues Drake A Warning Over “Use Of Bad Language”
Drake doesn’t seem to have a similar career path as Master P and will likely never end up joining the NBA and flexing his basketball skills, but being the Global Ambassador for the Raptors does allow him to sit courtside and ultimately, talk his shit to players as if he was on the court. A few days a go, the rapper and Kendrick Perkins had a heated moment during the game which resulted in security intervening. While no fight broke out, it seemed to warrant enough of a concern that the NBA has reportedly given Drake a warning on his choice of language during games.
USA Today Sports reports that Drake’s been issued a warning by the NBA over “the use of bad language” during the games. This comes shortly after his confrontation with Kendrick Perkins during Game 1 of the Cavs vs. the Raptors. League spokesperson Tim Frank said that the Raptors have also discussed this with Drake already.
There hasn’t been any details on the warning nor does it seem like he’ll be facing any sort of punishment for it but there’s a good chance we won’t be getting any more viral moments from the rapper in the future. This season the NBA has also taken an effort to stop fan misconduct which also includes the use of verbal abuse.
