Drake gets into altercation with Cavs player during National Basketball Association game

03 May 2018

Although he wasn't in uniform on Tuesday, Perkins traded angry words with Drake, Toronto's global ambassador, as the teams walked off at halftime, and again at the end of the game. 'I'm here in real life, ' he said.

The jawing resumed after the game. During a contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Drizzy offered the fade to Cavs center Kendrick Perkins and called him a "f*cking p*ssy" according to reports.

The Cavs big man doesn't seem concerned with Drake's trolling, though.

"What happened was I was talking to my old teammate Serge (Ibaka) walking into halftime telling him 'We about to win this game, ' and Drake butted in talking [stuff] to me, " Perkins told ESPN.

When Perkins exited the Cavs' locker room for good Tuesday night, a member of the team's security staff asked him if he wanted to be escorted to the team bus in case he might have another run-in with Drake along the way.

Perkins explained that he told the Grammy victor, "Sit your ass down and watch the game".

The Degrassi alum made light of the situation via Instagram shortly after, writing on journalist Elliott Wilson's post covering the incident, "I just said I liked the hem on his capris".

The Canadian singer is no stranger to on-court controversy. This turned into a verbal altercation between Drake and Perkins that extended past the Cav's 113-112 overtime victory. LeBron James finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists, and two blocks on the night, but received a lot of help from his supporting cast when he needed it most.
