The people manning the cameras at the Barclay’s Center had a little fun at Drake’s expense, last night, during the Game 6 matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors. During a break in the action, while Jay Z’s “Public Service Announcement (Interlude)” played over the loudspeakers, a cameraman spotted Drizzy sitting in the front row and digitally imposed a Brooklyn Nets jersey on the Rap’s Global Ambassador. The prank goes unnoticed for a few seconds until the Young Money rapper sees himself on the big screen and shakes his head in disgust. The video was later posted to the team’s Instagram account with the caption, YOLO #ForBrooklyn.
The great series of basketball has almost been overshadowed by the publicity of the underlying competition between Drake and former Nets shareholder Jay Z. In Game 1 Drake remarked that Hov was probably somewhere chowing on a fondue plate. He later became the butt of meme maker’s jokes after using a lint roller during the game. The Raptors later capitalized on the coverage passing out special Drake lint rollers to those in attendance. Both Drake and Jay were courtside for Game 6 with Fabolous introducing the starting lineup for the home team. The Net got 97-83 win for force a Game 7 on Sunday.
