Drake wore a vintage Toronto Raptors sweater on Thursday as he suspended his team to a Game One victory in the NBA final and then named Draymond Green & # 39; trash & # 39 ;.
The 32-year-old Canadian rapper was wearing a # 30 Dell Curry jersey when Toronto won the first NBA Finals game to be played outside the US, 118-109, against the Golden State Warriors.
Draymond, 29, and Drake exchanged words in Scotiabank Arena after the game where the singer told him & # 39; trash & # 39; called.

Draymond continued to walk while Warriors starred Stephen & # 39; Steph & # 39; Curry, 31, smiled and marched behind him to the dressing room.
Drake wore the # 30 sweater in a nod to Dell, who is Steph & # 39; s father.
Dell ended his 16-year NBA career game with the Raptors from 1999 to 2002.
The Raptors introduced Dell and some of their other former players after the first quarter, a group with multi-year All-Stars such as Tracy McGrady, 40 and Chris Bosh, 35.

Drake completed his game day outfit with black pants and white sneakers.
The Hotline Bling singer was spotted in courts with former Raptors player Tracy, who led the team to the first play-offs performance in 2000.
The singer was quite modest during most of Game One as opposed to being theatrical during the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks.
He had been bickering earlier in the game with Steph during a sideline, while looking at the superstar who just smiled back.

Drake became a & # 39; global ambassador & # 39; for the Raptors.
He was in his usual front row on Saturday when the Raptors won the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bucks.

Prior to Game 5 of the Bucks series on Thursday, the team presented Drake with a custom-made Raptors / OVO jacket with diamond kit, designed by the Diamond Foundry, allegedly worth $ 550,000.
Drake was especially animated during Game 4 of the Bucks series and even rubbed the shoulders of Raptors head coach Nick Nurse during the game.
The second game of the NBA final is scheduled to be played on Sunday in Toronto, with the Warriors hosting games three and four at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.

If the series went beyond four games, the Raptors would organize a potential game five and game seven.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr made a snarky pop culture reference when asked about Toronto's most talked-about fan, channeling the rapper Hotline Bling in his response to reporters, according to ESPN.
& # 39; I'm not worried about Drake – I called him earlier with his cell phone, & # 39; Kerr said, laughing. & # 39; My daughter just rolled her eyes, & # 39; & # 39; Never joke again please & # 39; & # 39;. & # 39;
Toronto star: Tracy McGrady who led the Raptors to their first playoff appearance in 2000 with Drake
Pascal Siakam scored a playoff career with 32 points, while the Raptors most dictated the action against a Golden State team that started its fifth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.
Kawhi Leonard added 23 points and Marc Gasol had 20 for the Raptors, fed by a crowd that couldn't wait for a 24-year party.
& # 39; I think they're in it and that's how it should be, man, & # 39; said Raptors trainer Nick Nurse. & # 39; That's home, and our fans deserve a lot of praise for being a big part of it. & # 39;
