Kevin Durant and Drake are friends. Drake even talked about how glad he was that Durant’s free agency decision made him happy. None of that matters when it comes to the results on the court, however.
The Toronto Raptors hosted the Warriors on Michael Jordan Authentic Womens Jersey Wednesday, and Drake was there to celebrate “Drake Night,” a now-annual tradition. That led to some friendly trash talk during the game. Or at least it seemed friendly.
First, Drake bumped into Durant during the middle of Durant’s interview. It didn’t seem like a coincidence. Durant certainly didn’t seem to think so judging by the death stare he shot at Drake.
The real kicker came later, when Durant was asked about the interaction he had with Drake on Drake Night.
The Rockets now sit at a cool 7-5 record, trapped in a four-way tie for fourth place in the Western Conference. And Harden is on pace to seriously compete for that coveted NBA Most Valuable Player award.
Jabari Parker does his best Kobe Bryant impersonation
Remember when Kobe wore No. 8 and was dunking all over people like a maxed-out NBA 2K17 MyPlayer with the game sliders on 100? If you don’t, here’s a friendly reminder as to why he’s a first ballot Hall of Famer.
Well, Jabari Parker certainly remembers these days. And as a tribute to the retired Mamba, Parker brought the house down with silky smooth transition finish Bryant would approve of.
Maybe Parker was trying to one-up his teammate, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had his own Mike Dunleavy Authentic Womens Jersey highlight-reel jam Wednesday night.
Somehow, with all that talent, the Bucks (5-6) lost to a Miami Heat team (3-8) lacking a go-to option on offense.
Harden notched his third triple-double on the season, continuing to chase Hall of Famers Oscar Robertson and Tiny Archibald, the only players to average 30 points and 10 assists in a season. Through 12 games, Harden is at 28.7 points, 12.6 assists and 7.8 rebounds per game with a Player Efficiency Rating of 30.3.
Did we mention he can dance, too?
“I don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night.”
