Drake gives passionate speech following Raptors' Game 5 win

Stan Temming

Drake’s love for the Toronto Raptors, especially during this recent postseason run, can’t be argued. And while he wasn’t in Milwaukee for Game 5 of the East Finals between the Raptors and Bucks on Thursday night, the Canadian rapper and producer got his moment in the limelight following Toronto’s 105-99 victory.

“Look around you. We created this,” he said in reference to the thousands of excited fans watching the game together on a giant screen in downtown Toronto. “This didn’t exist before we were here. Look around at the square. I promise you right now, we did this... All we are is proud and passionate... I love Toronto, I love this team and we’re going to the NBA Finals.”

Say what you want about the 32-year-old, the fire that he can spark under people is, well, it’s something.

Let’s just not allow an entire fanbase to get too far ahead of itself, though. Someone please remind the man that four games need to be won to clinch a series.
