At the moment, Drake is seen as the most fanatic follower of the Raptors. Some people love it and some people think Drake is crossing the line with his enthusiasm. He has been known for his choice of clothing that either inspires his Toronto team such as channeling Tupac’s “Birdie” from “Above The Rim”, or antagonizing Kevin Durant with a Home Alone hoodie.
TMZ recently caught up with NBA legend and analyst Shaq where they asked him about how he feels about Drake. As it turns out, Shaq is a huge fan of his fandom.
“Drake is a smart guy,” Shaq said “He knows what he’s doing. It’s called marketing, people. [Drake] is just having fun, having a good time … as a guy sitting there watching on TV, it’s very entertaining.” The former NBA player also compared the artist to Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer.
Shaq also talked about just how great the NBA Finals have been so far and is excited to see how it all plays out. Game 3 goes down on Wednesday in Oakland at 10 P.M. EST.
