Drake is sitting like a king after the 2017 Billboard Music Awards nominations were announced. The rapper racked up 22 nominations, tied with The Chainsmokers for the most all-time nominations in a single year. He could bypass Adele for the most BBMAs earned in one night, if he scores at least 13 wins. Needless to say, it’s a big night for Drake, and emotions will be high. He’s going to need all the hyped-up energy he can get from his fans, and why not learn from the man himself on how to be a true fan.
Drake, who has been considered by some as the “King of Toronto,” has gained a reputation as somewhat of a superfan of his hometown NBA team, the Toronto Raptors. In fact, he can be seen courtside for most games cheering on the players who also are his friends.
Look no further than his attendance at any Toronto Raptors basketball games for inspiration on how you can support Drake and his BBMAs nominations.
The love of basketball goes back. Way back. Heyyyyy ‘Degrassi’.
Just make up your own. No one needs to know.
