No One Could Figure Out Why Drake Was At Rockets-Thunder

For some reason, Drake was sitting courtside from Wednesday night’s Oklahoma City Thunder-Houston Rockets showdown in Oklahoma City.

The logical reason for Drake to be at this game is probably to support Thunder guard and Toronto native Shai-Gilgeous Alexander (and Lu Dort, who is also a Canadian on OKC’s squad). But why this specific game to do so? At some point, Gilgeous-Alexander will be back in Toronto playing with the Thunder. And this isn’t even a good opponent to see the Thunder play against.

After cryptically teasing it last week on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Drake confirmed this morning that his long-awaited new album, Certified Lover Boy, is just over the horizon.

Drake Confirms ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Release Date

Following last week’s cryptic commercial during ESPN‘s SportsCenter, Drake has confirmed his long-teased, upcoming album Certified Lover Boy‘s release date.

CERTIFIED LOVER BOY SEPTEMBER 3,” he wrote under an image of several “Pregnant Woman” emojis via Instagram on Monday morning.

The formal announcement arrives days after the Six God interrupted ESPN’s SportsCenter program with a glitchy advertisement mimicking a broadcast hack. In the commercial, a piece of cardboard flashed before the screen fronting a handwritten message: “CLB September 3.”

The official SportsCenter Twitter account spoke out about the takeover, writing, “We want to apologize for any interruptions viewers might have experienced during SportsCenter this morning. We had some technical difficulties that have since been resolved.”
