Apparently, Wednesday night was “Drake Night” at Air Canada Centre, and the rapper and Toronto Raptors ambassador had the honor of introducing the team before its matchup with the rival Brooklyn Nets.
And he actually wasn’t half bad.
Drake got a couple of good jabs in, saying Amir Johnson “recently got a tattoo of a Swiffer WetJet” — Johnson is a spokesperson for Swiffer — and calling Kyle Lowry “the baby-faced assassin.”
To make Drake Night complete, fans in attendance received commemorative shirts with the throwback purple dino logo. The Raptor mascot got into it, as well.
Raptors hand out 19,000+ Drake shirts to honor the rapper on "Drake Night." http://t.co/Rn13TvZph5—

Now that Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker is on injured reserve, his jerseys are selling for less than $15.
Anyone need a cheap jersey? http://t.co/h4tKzi8Ptu—
