Ever since last season, Drake has been on the payroll of the Toronto Raptors, as he has been brought in to essentially make the team more cool. He’ll have a say in branding and is an “ambassador” for the team. Therefore, he represents the organization.
So when he was on stage during a recent concert and made statements to the crowd around how Kevin Durant should come to the Raptors in 2016 when he’s a free agent, that’s officially tampering according to the NBA. The team has been fined $25,000 as a result.
