Drake jokes about Kendrick Perkins beef on Instagram

The strangest rivalry of 2018 continues to blaze forward.

Hip-hop star (and Toronto Raptors superfan) Drake was involved in a bizarre beef during Game 1 of the Raptors-Cavs second-round series on Monday when he traded words with Cleveland Cavaliers backup center Kendrick Perkins.

After the game, Perkins told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN that the “God’s Plan” singer was chirping at him while he was trying to talk to his former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate (and current Raptor) Serge Ibaka.

Instagram user Elliott Wilson later posted a screenshot of Perkins’ remarks to the Gram, and Drake left a comment joking that he was simply complimenting the hem on the veteran big man’s capris.

The unexpected spectacle in some ways overshadowed the Cavs’ 113-112 win in overtime, especially since the two men got into it multiple times. Game 2 will be on Thursday in Toronto, and hopefully Perkins will wear a more modest pair of pants this time.
