NBA Fan Beef Featuring Drake and Mallory Edens
With just three games remaining, the Eastern Conference Finals have been pretty electric up to this point.
After falling down 0-2, the Toronto Raptors stormed back to take a 3-2 series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks last night. With the Raptors up 3-2 heading back home, it appears they have the deer in their headlights (*bows*). Closing out a series at home is a dream scenario for any team. And as good of a series as this has been so far, a whole new layer was added to the drama last night:

Mallory Edens, daughter of Bucks owner Wes Edens, showed up to Game 5 wearing a shirt with Pusha T’s face on it. If you follow pop-culture at all, you know that Pusha T and Raptors super-fan/rapper Drake have beef dating back to last Summer. This was obviously a stab at Drake, who ran up and down the sidelines after a much needed Game 4 win for his Raptors a few nights ago, something that pissed off a lot of Bucks players and staff.
With the Bucks on the brink of elimination, Drake thought it would be fun to fire back last night by changing his IG avatar to a picture of Edens:

I’m rooting for Toronto in this series, but I wouldn’t mind seeing it go seven solely for the memes. Let’s keep it going guys.
