Much like Drake, the Toronto Raptors started from the bottom. Unlike the Aubrey Graham, they still spend most of their time there, or at least close to it.
In spite of their wildly diverging fortunes, the Raptors named Drake their "global ambassador" earlier this year. Now, they're further trying to capitalize on the link by declaring their Jan. 11 game against the Brooklyn Nets to be Drake Night at the ACC. The night will feature a limited edition Raptors-OVO T-shirt, as well as a halftime performance by Drake's tour DJ Future the Prince.
We're still waiting for him to convince some half way decent free agents to sign here, but Drake Night will have to tide us over in the mean time.
