Raptors fined $25,000 for Drake’s recruitment pitch to Kevin Durant at OVO Fest

"I see you." - Adam Silver to Drake.

It's a common refrain that every rapper wants to be a basketball player and every basketball player wants to be a rapper, but Drake is finding out firsthand that they should probably be kept out of each other's arenas. Last weekend, the official Toronto Raptors ambassador used his "I see you" perch at OVO Fest to make a "hypothetical" recruiting pitch to Oklahoma Thunder superstar/future free agent Kevin Durant. Well, according to ESPN, the NBA saw it too; they're fining the Raptors $25,000 for tampering. No word yet whether that will come out of Drake's $300,000 Ontario tourism grant.
