Drake continues to
As Green exited the court with the rest of his Warriors teammates, the 29-year-old passed the Grammy winner and the two seemingly shared a heated exchange, prompting the hip-hop star to supposedly say:
Ouch. See the tense trash talking (below):

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as Drake has become the ultimate NBA troll over the past few years.
His distracting antics — which include jumping up to his feet, shouting at players, and even massaging Raptors’ coach Nick Nurse’s shoulders — have sparked outrage from league officials and coaches.
Fans and NBA commentators, however, can’t get enough of the performer’s over-the-top behavior.
Take last night’s game, for example. Aside from trash talking Green, Drake trolled Warriors star Steph Curry by wearing his father Dell Curry’s jersey from when he played for Toronto. The two went on to have an exchange at one point during the game, which ended with Drake… sweetly picking something out of Steph’s hair?
As explained in a post the In My Feelings artist later shared on Instagram, he had picked lint out of Curry’s hair — and he’s planning on selling it on eBay:
Drake also trolled Klay Thompson on Thursday night, in response to the Warriors athlete telling press that he wouldn’t be listening to the rapper’s songs until after the Finals were over. The 29-year-old told reporters at a press conference earlier this week:
“If it’s one of his soft, R&B songs, I’mma skip it ’cause I’m in ‘kill mode’ right now trying to get these four games. So, I’ll skip ‘Hotline Bling’ or anything along that line.”
So, naturally, Champagne Papi hit Thompson with some Hotline Bling-ing after the athlete was whistled for an offensive foul in the fourth quarter. Ch-ch-check out the funny moment that made the commentators chuckle (below):

As for Green, he previously told reporters that the Raptor’s ambassador was the last thing he was worried about as the game approached. He said at a press conference last week:
“Drake can’t shoot. Nor can he pass. You ever seen Drake play basketball? I really don’t care.”
Drake may not be able to shoot, but he sure as heck can throw some internet-breaking shade.
