Drake was feeling a little salty earlier this week after watching his hometown Toronto Raptors get swept by the Los Angeles Clippers in 6.
After Tuesday night’s (Dec. 27) 124-113 win, the Clippers’ social media team blasted Drizzy with a post that showed a pair of former Raptors Kawhi Leonard and Norman Powell taking on the 6 God after the game.
“Kawhi and Norm with a fan,” the Instagram post captioned to disparage Drake, who wasted no time turning to the comments section mocking the Clippers’ championship drought.
“Win a ring,” he wrote. The bitter comment outraged Clipper nation and has garnered over 35,000 likes as of press time.

Tuesday night’s game dropped the Raptors to a season-low 15-19 as Paul George scored 23 points for the Clippers. Raptors forward Pascal Siakam did his best to keep Toronto in it with a 36-point effort that came up short in the 11-point loss.
Drake was in the building taking in the action from a patio chair with his son Adonis for some family bonding time during the holiday season. While only five years old, Adonis seems to have his own dreams for the future.
For those who don’t know, the LA Clippers have never won an NBA championship or even won the Western Conference to reach the NBA Finals in team history. However, the franchise reached the Conference Finals for the first time in 2021.
Drake, who was named an official Toronto Raptors Global Ambassador in 2013, was there every step of the way to help Canada’s only NBA franchise to its first championship against the Golden State Warriors in 2019. At the time, the team was headed from current LA Clipper Kawhi Leonard, who received NBA Finals MVP honors.
In other Drake news, some of the Toronto rapper’s handwritten lyrics have gone up for auction.
A teenage Drizzy reportedly wrote the lyrics while working for his uncle’s Memphis furniture maker in the 2000s. They ended up in the trash and were only discovered in the factory’s dumpster when she was closing up shop for good.
OVO fans will have the opportunity to purchase the handwritten lyrics on loose leaf paper from auction house Moments In Time for $20,000.
