Drake performed in Oakland at Oracle Arena on Tuesday and none other than Kevin Durant joined him
Alright, everyone. You can start rounding up all of your Drake bandwagon jokes, because you’re probably gonna have a field day with this one.
Tuesday night as part of his “Summer Sixteen” tour, the hip hop mega star was performing in Oakland, California, home of the two-time defending Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors. Of course, folks were wondering whether or not Drake would have any surprises up his sleeve regarding the Warriors, and he gave the folks a big one in the form of new star Kevin Durant.
Yes, during the performance on Tuesday night, the newest prize piece of the Warriors was introduced by and joined Drake on stage, much to the delight of the crowd in attendance.
It was a pretty cool moment, as Durant is still just settling into his new surroundings as a Golden State Warrior. After nine incredible years with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Durant decided this past July that it was time to move on in his career, and he came to the conclusion that he should join one of the deadliest teams in the history of the NBA — much to the chagrin of a lot of NBA fans out there who see him as taking the easy way out.
But really, let’s all be honest here: The real story in this one is Drake pandering to the Warriors crowd by bringing out Durant. I’m completely sure that Toronto Raptors fans are happy with this development on Tuesday night.
All they have to do to get completely riled up is take a look at that picture above of Drake sporting the Durant-Warriors jersey.
