Drake’s courtside ‘antics’ has appropriately taken it further for the NBA Finals, having worn Dell Curry’s jersey and traded words with Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson.

With all that said, one NBA legend who’s undoubtedly entertained by it all is Shaq, who recently praised Drake for his business savvy and bringing more excitement to the game.

“As a fan you want to see smack talk…Drake vs Draymond I love it, Kevin Durant and Klay calling him by his government name I love it… as I guy sitting there watching it on TV it’s very entertaining.”

Additionally, Shaq made a point to defend Drake by adding that

“the practice facility is named after him, so what’s the difference between him and [Clippers owner] Steve Ballmer,” while going on to describe Drizzy as a “smart guy who knows what he’s doing… it’s called marketing people.”
