Did Drake cross line massaging Raptors coach during game?
Drake is easily the most recognizable Raptors fan in the world and has made it clear this postseason that he feels he is an important part of the team, but did his actions during Game 4 on Tuesday night cross the line?
The Raptors had an impressive showing at home to even their series against the Milwaukee Bucks at 2-2. Drake was as animated as ever the entire night, and at one point during the fourth quarter he gave Toronto coach Nick Nurse a little shoulder massage.

You have to wonder how Nurse feels about that. Drake is already allowed to parade the sidelines and be on the court at various points throughout the game, but messing with the coach during the game like that seems like a bit much.
Are the Raptors going to say something to Drake about it? Probably not. Heck, they just gave him his annual custom OVO jacket before Game 4, and it is reportedly worth nearly $800K.

Raptors fans probably appreciate the way Drake mocked Giannis Antetokounmpo for missing a free throw, but there should be limitations to his access in the middle of a playoff game.
