Though Drake was a pro-Toronto troll, outside of the NBA, he and Kevin are close friends (he has KD’s jersey number tattooed on his arm.) “Was tough for any of us to even enjoy that game tonight after seeing this transpire,” Drake wrote on Instagram after Game 5. “Praying for our brother. That’s my only concern is your well being.” Unfortunately, prayers didn’t save KD. He underwent surgery for his ruptured Achilles tendon on June 12.
