    On one hand I love it and it makes the game even more fun but on the other hand how can it be okay for a fan to walk up behind the head coach of a NBA team during a game and touch his shoulders?

    What relationship does he have with Aubrey other than the trolling?

    You didn't see Jack and Spike giving the coach a back rub during a game. I don't mind the jawing with the opposing players. I loved the Reggie Miller and Spike Lee days. Drake just seems to jump on the bandwagon all the time. Granted, the Raptors are his hometown team this time around. Plus, add in the fact that he has a Curry and Durant tattoo just makes him that much more of a tool.

    That was over the top.

    Drake is the ultimate bandwagon fan. The joke going around is that the teams he jumps on with always seem to end up losing.

    I thought his antics last round went too far. There is supposed to be a decorum to having those premium seats.

    Oh come on man these dudes all hang out at the same places. Draymond and Drake may not be bros, but they definitely have a relationship outside of the trolling on the court.

    You sound like one of the people who supports the old rich guys who line the sidelines at Rupp.

    No, I am not being a fuddy-duddy; I am being dead serious. Those tickets come with rules from the NBA and their teams. There is a reason the NBA went and talked with him prior to the Finals.

    I haven't followed all the drama but I am glad to hear the NBA and Drake should be on the same page.

    I will say listening to the commentators claiming this was a "manufactured whatever" with Drake was a major turn off for me considering what happened. Not that any of it is a big deal but we don't need NBA basketball commentators sucking up to Drake when Drake was clearly over the line.

    I think what he has going is working. It gets the crowd pumped and he gets in the heads of the opposition. I like it for the most part.

    Draymond just said in an interview that he doesnít mind it and people are making such a big deal out of it because he is Drake. And that he has worked hard to get where he is and gets a longer leash because of who he is.

    IMO touching the coach was a little overboard but besides that donít really see an issue. Itís drawing more attention to the NBA and the fine product that it is.
