Drake Pays Homage to Toronto Raptor DeMar DeRozan
Toronto Raptors fans were blessed with the unexpected arrival of Kawhi Leonard yesterday (July 18), but it came at the bittersweet cost of trading star player and fan favourite, DeMar DeRozan. The team's global ambassador, Drake, has since shared a message to the now-former Raptor.
 
In an Instagram post, the Toronto rapper sent DeRozan "10 million thank yous." He also noted DeRozan's role in creating the "most exciting years in franchise history."
 
"I am grateful to have witnessed your combination of skill, persistence, and loyalty from the same seats every night," Drake wrote. "Thank you for being an incredible captain and an even better friend."
 
Drizzy closed the caption by welcoming Leonard to the team, saying, "You have always been a poised clinical warrior and I can't wait to see how Toronto inspires your fight."
