Drake and Kendrick Perkins almost got into a fight after an NBA playoff game Tuesday night. Now, was that a Mad Libs-style sentence I just made up or something that actually happened? If you said, “well, it’s 2018, so that has to have actually happened” you are correct.
During and after the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Toronto Raptors 113-112 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference playoff series, the two men almost tangled. The rap star and the semi-retired post player had to be separated after jawing at each other on the floor post-game. That followed a war of words that erupted at halftime.
