The NBA’s Toronto Raptors are honoring 27-year-old Drizzy by hosting a “Drake Night” on January 11th at the Air Canada Centre as they play against the Brooklyn Nets. For the night, the Raptors will be rocking black and gold OVO-inspired jerseys and instead of the usual stadium music, fans will get to listen to Drake’s DJ, DJ Future The Prince. Fans in attendance will also be given a limited edition “Drake Night” T-shirt.
This news is accompanied by a Sports Illustrated report that the team is considering a permanent OVO-inspired team color change from red, purple and white to black and gold.
Drake has made a lot of noise in the basketball world over the last couple of months. He recently signed a shoe deal with Team Jordan and has be appointed the position of Global Ambassador for the Raptors.
