Drake’s a good sport after all! He may try to distract opposition players court side when they come up against his beloved Toronto Raptors, but he had nothing but love for LeBron James after the Cleveland Cavaliers beat his team, even giving the basketball god a hug in the tunnel.
That’s it, hug it out! Drake, 29, must’ve been feeling pretty down in the dumps to see LeBron James, 31, and his Cleveland Cavaliers take the Eastern Finals series with a win over the Toronto Raptors on May 27. But there was no hard feelings from the hip-hop star as he embraced the basketball legend in the tunnel after the game!

Now, the Cavs took the series 4-2, and will either play the Golden State Warriors or Oklahoma City Thunder. They ended up running away with a 113-87 win at the Air Canada Centre, and the Raptors never really looked liked upsetting the odds, so Drake must’ve been pretty distraught, right?
Well, he certainly showed his respect and love for the man that brought the Raptors back down to earth, LeBron with most manliest of hugs! After the game ended the pair locked eyes on each other in the player’s tunnel, and they just simply grabbed hold of one another and squeezed each other tight! So, no hard-feelings then!
Perhaps it was just what Drake needed after he found himself the butt of all the jokes on social media after the superfan’s team took a beating. He must’ve been feeling pretty low, so a hug was definitely called for. And who better a hugger than 6’8″ LeBron. Amusingly, he just towers over the hip-hop star in the clip!
It sounds like Drake will be cheering on those Cavs in the NBA Finals from now on. Will we see him courtside and will LeBron get him tickets? We’ll have to wait and see!
