Drake – Toronto Raptors Global Ambassador
As of yesterday, Toronto has been informed that Drake had become one of Toronto Raptors Team Ambassadors.
A lifelong Raptors fan Drake wants to make the team cool again, as well as win some games. He will be using his A-list connection as a way to attract prized free agents and/or simply infuse the Toronto fan base with enthusiasm about rebuilding the franchise.
Drake follows in the footsteps of rapper/mogul like Jay-z and Will Smith into the NBA ownership.
The 26-year-old Drake grew up watching the Raptors in their early 2000s heyday when Vince Carter turned them into post-season regulars.
