Drake loves Doris Burke. He made that clear during the Eastern Conference Finals, and wanted to show his admiration again in Toronto tonight.
It is Drake Night in Toronto for the Raptors' big game against the Warriors, which means the team ambassador is front and center for his hometown NBA team. For the occasion, he is wearing a custom "Woman Crush Everyday" shirt featuring Burke's face.
Back during the NBA Playoffs, Burke said that the hip hop star flirted with her during the Raptors' series with the Cleveland Cavaliers. From New York Magazine:
Can I tell you something about the last time I was there? I just could not believe this happened. Drake turned around — my seat at game six was right behind him — makes a heart shape [with his hands], and points at me. I’m looking around behind me to see who’s there, turn back to him, and then he points and he does it again. I texted my daughter and said, “You need to know Drake just did this to me.”
Well done, Drake.
Tonight's game at Air Canada Center is a huge one. The Warriors are 8-2, while the Raptors have been one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference and sit at 7-3.
