If you live within a kilometer of a television or spend any time on the World Wide Web, you probably know that the Toronto Raptors played the Golden State Warriors in Game Two of the NBA Finals Sunday night. While the Warriors ended up winning 109-104 to even the series after the Raps rallied in the final five minutes (but we’re not bitter), at least we have something to distract us from the pain: a bunch of celebs and more Drake trolling.
At Game One, Drake stuck it to Steph Curry by wearing his dad’s old Raptors jersey (savage) and this time he’s going in on injured Warriors forward Kevin Durant. Sitting/standing/pacing in his usual courtside position, Drake wore a hoodie with a photo of Macaulay Culkin as Kevin in Home Alone,referencing the moment in the movie when Kevin’s parents realize they left him at home.
Good one, Drake. Even Macaulay thought it was funny.

Champagne Papi wasn’t the only one living it up at the Raps game this weekend. A former president by the name of Barack Hussein Obama (ever heard of him??) was in the house too, in a leather jacket no less. We’ll be adding this appearance to our growing body of evidence that Obama is just getting cooler the more distance he puts between himself and the presidency. The former POTUS was in Canada this week to speak in Ottawa and chill out in matching shirts with Justin Trudeau.
We couldn’t spend too much time reminiscing about political eras gone by though because OUR BOYFRIEND Shawn Mendes was back in Toronto between the European and North American legs of his world tour, looking adorable as always. He also met up with Drake on the sidelines, which is the most Canadian thing to happen since the last time William Shatner had poutine.

Check out that look in the second picture. What sort of wisdom was Drizzy imparting on the next generation of Canadian music royalty? What secrets of the universe was he revealing? We may never know, but we want that image on a t-shirt, a phone case and an area rug.
Speaking of Canadian music, Game Two marked the second time ever the Canadian anthem was played at the NBA Finals (the first time being at Game One), and it was performed by Canada’s sweetheart (and good friend of Mendes), Alessia Cara. After the game, she met some of her youngest fans all decked out in Raptors gear and shared the moment on Insta, calling it the “cutest thing that’s ever happened to me.”
We’re going to be tuning in to Game Three on Wednesday to see if the Raps can shift the series in their favour in the Golden State—and also to see what Drake wears and which other famous faces come out to take in all the action.
