Drake Slips Up And Gets The Toronto Raptors Fined $25,000

The Toronto Raptors are probably not too happy with Drake right now.

ESPN reports that the Toronto Raptors have been fined $25,000 because Drake, who just so happens to be their Global Ambassador, made a comment at recent concert which the NBA has deemed a violation of its anti-tampering rules.

According to reports, Drake brought Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant on stage during his OVO Festival in Toronto and asked him to play for the Toronto Raptors.

“Before we leave, I just want to show one of my brothers something,” Drake told the crowd. “You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen.” ESPN states that the crowd broke out into cheer and started a “KD” chant.

According to ESPN’s NBA sources, this has been deemed as a public recruiting pitch which just so happens to be punishable by fine. We are guessing that Toronto’s management will be keeping a closer eye on the 26-year-old but we are pretty sure that by now, $25,000 is nothing to the “0 to 100” rapper.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
