If you have followed any part of the Raptors' playoff run, you most likely heard some mention of Drake, the Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, producer … you get it.
The 29-year-old music mogul has been labeled the "Global Ambassador" for the NBA franchise and has courtside season tickets where he's often seen during TV broadcasts. He was spotlighted in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals jawing at LeBron James and Kyrie Irving during Toronto's 105-99 victory over Cleveland to even the series 2-2.
Drake grew up in Toronto and continues to use his global platform to "Preach the gospel that is Toronto," as he said in 2013 when he was officially given his ambassador title. This passion has been infused into Drake's music and public appearances, and the Raptors have surely benefited.
This raises two questions: would the Timberwolves benefit from their own "Global Ambassador?" And who would it be?
