Last night (Janurary 11), The Toronto Raptors hosted the first ever “Drake Night“. The basis of the event was celebrating Toronto’s own Drake and his new involvement with the team. The night was set up to have Drake be a part of everything from the t-shirts that were given away to announcing the starting line up for the Raptors.
Here’s Drake announcing the Starting five:
“I think that tonight is a glimpse into the future,” he said. “I think tonight, you’re gonna see a city come together. …I want this to be an intimidating building to come to. And I want to be intimidating not because we’re negative or overly-aggressive, just because…this is the best city in the world, and one of the best buildings in the world. I want this to be a place that every team fears going to because of how much of a tight-knit family Toronto really is.”
The MC later went on to co- host the halftime show:
And lastly, “Drake Night” gave fans this one of a kind Toronto Raptors shirt. The shirt has already been seen on Ebay, selling for well over $100:
