After the Raptors beat the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night, Drake—who was not able to attend the game in person, by the way—decided it would be a good idea to troll LeBron James on Instagram. He posted an image of LeBron crying about a call on IG along with a sad face emoji and tagged the Cavaliers’ official DJ Steph Floss in the post:
Most people reacted to it by saying, “What in the world is Drake thinking?! Now LeBron is going to drop 50 next game!”
But as it turns out, Drake’s post didn’t come back to bite Toronto in Game 4 of the ECF. LeBron scored 29 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and dished out six assists during the game, but the Raptors were still able to win 105-99 on Monday night to even the ECF series at 2-2. They did it by getting 35 points from Kyle Lowry, 32 points from DeMar DeRozan, and another masterful rebounding and defensive performance from Bismack Biyombo.
And after the game ended, Drake decided to continue trolling LeBron and the Cavs in the form of not one, not two, not three, but four IG posts. None of them were quite as inflammatory as the IG post Drake put up on Saturday, but we would be shocked if the Cavs didn’t print these out immediately and hang them on their bulletin board in Cleveland:
Too far? Eh, probably. At some point, Drake is likely going to regret doing this when LeBron goes off during a game against Toronto. But the Raptors have done the seemingly impossible by climbing back into their series with the Cavaliers. So can you really blame Drake for having some fun with it?
