Drake, a global ambassador of the Toronto Raptors ― and the king of trolling the team’s opposition ― sent a warm message of support to Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors player who suffered an injury during Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night.
“Was tough for any of us to even enjoy that game tonight after seeing this transpire,” Drake wrote. “Praying for our brother. That’s my only concern tonight is your well being.”
Durant, the Warriors’ forward, suffered an apparent achilles injury during the game, his first since being sidelined for over a month due to a calf injury.
A video from Monday night captured a concerned Drake consoling Durant as he walked off the court during the second quarter. The Warriors ended up beating the Raptors 106-105.
The “God’s Plan” rapper has publicly shared his fondness for Durant before. As Complex noted, Drake shouted out the Warriors star in a verse of French Montana’s 2012 hit “Pop That.”
The Warriors will return to the Oracle Arena in Oakland to play the Raptors for Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.
