  • Lebron James nearly instigated Drake & Kendrick Perkins fight at NBA game

"I'm here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers".

The NBA issued an official warning to Drake about 'the use of bad language, ' according to an article on Thursday by ESPN. A writer for the Toronto Star claimed to have heard Drake shout other obscenities at Perkins.

Perkins took exception to Drake's comments as the teams were leaving the court at the end of the first half on Tuesday. Making sure this doesn't happen again, the National Basketball Association has issued a warning to the rapper for his role in the incident, according to a report from USA Today Sports.

A video on Instagram emerged following the playoff game in which Cleveland players are seen walking to the locker room past where Drake was seated courtside. Perkins said he told Raptors player and his former teammate Serge Ibaka at halftime that the Cavaliers were going to beat them.

Perkins and Drake, who is Toronto's global ambassador and the face of the Raptors' fan base, also had words at the end of the game.

Perkins, asked about the warning issued to Drake, told ESPN's Dave McMenamin he was "here to support my teammates". Drake later wrote on Instagram: "I just said I liked the hem on his capris".

The first game of the series went down to the wire between the two teams and the Cleveland Cavaliers may have gotten the last laugh.

Perkins, who was not suited up for the game, fired back at Drake with the pair being separated by security.
