Drake Joins the Toronto Raptors / Toronto Hosts 2016 NBA All-Stars

Today was a momentous day in Toronto Basketball history, first our homegrown hip hop All-Star in his own right, Drake, has agreed to become the “global ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors. Not only will the club be using his star-power to encourage sales and their re-branding efforts, Wheelchair Jimmy will also influence the Raptors new look, potentially including new team colours, jerseys and logo, which the ever-ambitious lyricist has already offered design suggestions. 

Secondly, it was confirmed today that Toronto will be hosting the 2016 NBA All-Star game, the first time the event will be held outside of the USA. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't already devising a savings plan to attend the event. It should also be noted that 2016 is the 20-year anniversary of the Toronto Raptors as an official NBA ball club, coincidence? I think not. 

Who knows, maybe after this gig, Drake will try his hand at become a sports agent... Hova!
