The Raptors handled the Hornets tonight in Toronto, 126-113. Kyle Lowry played a fantastic game, finishing with 36 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds, but his performance was slightly overshadowed by a certain Toronto superfan sitting in on Sportsnet commentary.
Drake’s a front-row staple at the Air Canada Centre, and tonight he moved a bit closer to the broadcast desk to sit in with the Sportsnet crew.
He spent a decent amount of time on the air as well. Here’s Drake mocking Jeremy Lamb’s leg tat:

Drake even hit his notes for some statistical analysis:

After the Raptors wrapped up the contest, he was even called in to handle the postgame interview with Lowry:

That’s the first time Drake betrayed his actual profession; he’s obviously not used to holding the microphone anywhere other than in front of his own face.
But hey! Not bad Drake! He really is a man of many talents.
