The Raptors have been fined $25,000 for comments that Drake, team ambassador of the Toronto Raptors, made about Kevin Durant at a recent concert.

Here’s the comment Drake made which caused the NBA to issue the fine — citing violation of its anti-tampering rules.

“Before we leave, I just want to show one of my brothers something,” Drake announced to the crowd. “You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen.”

Drake just paid a ton of respect to Rappin’ 4-Tay.

4-Tay first put Drake on blast when YG’s hit “Who Do You Love” came out. Drake drops lyrics on the song that are clearly ripped straight from 4-Tay’s 1994 hit “Playaz Club.”

4-Tay was offended Drake didn’t give him credit on the song. No lawsuit was ever filed, but sources close to the situation tell us a very lucrative agreement was reached.
