Rapper rubbed salt into LeBron's wounds after the game.
Canadian rapper Drake had absolutely no sympathy for injured NBA star Lebron James after the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to Toronto Raptors on Saturday (May 21st 2016), taking to Instagram to throw some serious shade at the basketball hero following his unexpected loss. There's such a thing as a sore winner, Drake!
Drake is way too pleased with himself after Raptors win
Drake is well-known for being a basketball fan and indeed an avid supporter of the Toronto Raptors, and even though he wasn't present at the game at the Air Canada Centre where he often is, it didn't stop him taunting an already dejected LeBron James about his surprise defeat with a throwback Instagram shot featuring the star on the verge of tears during a past game. 'Flying home for game 4', Drake tagged the snap.
Despite James being the all-time leading scorer for the Cleveland Cavaliers, they were beaten in a 99-84 win against the Raptors in Game 3 of the playoff series - allegedly their lowest score over the past 50 games. To make matters worse, he was spectacularly floored by his own teammate Tristan Thompson who accidentally elbowed him hard in the face.
Apparently, James and Drake have no real beef, but a source told Hollywood Life before the game that the former was extremely confident ahead of Game 3. Still buddies? We don't know... 'LeBron and Drake are boys and they're cool but tonight, LeBron's loyalties are to his teammates', the source said. 'He doesn't know if Drake's going to be in the building, being the cheerleader that he is and trash talking him as he supports the Raptors. But if he is, that's cool. LeBron could care less. He's been booed harder and called very harsh names by fans his entire NBA career. If anything, Drake will be sitting at the games with his mouth shut because LeBron's about to put on clinic and show everyone why he's the best in the game and help move his team to the finals.'
As for what LeBron has planned for the future of the Cleveland Cavaliers? 'We'll have a better game plan going into Game 4', he said following the showdown.
