Toronto Raptors part-time announcer Drake finally returns back to “Jurassic Park” for a preseason game against the Houston Rockets, per Billboard.com. While it was brief, he managed to hop on the microphone and chop it up with the commentators. He talked about his love for the city and the team.
Drake Finally Returns to Courtside
This was a big deal to the Raptor fans at home after being banned from the stadium for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Drake posted up courtside and watched the young talented and upcoming Raptors team dominate.
“So good to be home,” Drizzy said during Monday’s broadcast.
He mentioned that he had to sip drinks at home while watching games for too long. He was a bit overdressed for the occasion. He actually joked about it during the broadcast. Drizzy had a red fuzzy Raptors jacket and jeans all while continuing to poke fun at his own team as well the opposition.
“Everything’s feeling great, looking great, so great to be around people again, see all these faces. I’m feeling in high spirits boys,” he told the crew as he praised the young, athletic team. He also laughed about having a few of the players out to his place in the off-season. Drake being too gassed from finishing his album, Certified Lover Boy. His fatigue hindered him from working out that morning. “I think I woke up in the pool that day, from what I can recall,” he quipped.
“This is more of a game seven kind of fit, not preseason,” said Drake as he continued to joke throughout the night.
