As we all know, Drake is the WORLD'S BIGGEST Toronto Raptors fan. The rapper, who was officially hired by The Raptors as a global brand ambassador in September 2013, has become known for his EXTRA AF sideline antics during NBA Playoffs over the past few weeks. His enthusiasm for The Raptors over the course of the postseason has been unmatched and he's practically become the team's personal hype man. Obviously, the team is basking in the four-time Grammy winner's unwavering support; so much so, that they presented Drake with a custom jacket jersey before Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks earlier this month.
Drake's sideline antics have become such a staple in this year's NBA postseason that people are actually betting on what he'll do during the NBA Finals when they start tomorrow, May 30th. Alongside normal bets on players, scoring, etc... SportsBetting.ag has added a series of prop bets regarding Drake's possible sideline shenanigans. Bettors can wager on "Drake's tattoos, hoodies, next album, curse and more" as well as "his social media spats, if he'll come in contact with a player or coach and how much attention he'll get from the ABC broadcast crew."
A full list of the Drake-related prop bets can be found below.

However, people betting on Drake pulling some crazy sideline shenanigans may be looking at major losses. Apparently, the NBA has contacted The Raptors regarding Drake's conduct. After Game 4, Mike Budenholzer, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, told reporters that "he was unhappy with Drake seemingly having unlimited access to the floor." Because of this, Drake may be forced to tone down a bit during the Finals, but I guess we'll have to wait and see!
