New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Toronto Raptors made history last night after beating the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference. This marks the first time in NBA history that the Raptors made the playoffs. Interestingly enough, the Canadian team is apparently immune to the Drake curse since he was sitting courtside the whole time and was equally as entertaining as the game itself.
Now, we all know that he's the Global Ambassador of the team and we also know how calculated he is when it comes to everything. Last night, the rapper decided to not only show Kawhi his support but also decided to rock the same attire Tupac wore as Bishop during the basketball tournament scenes in Above The Rim. Rocking a pair of black jeans, a black hoodie with cursive writing and a black bandana, hip-hop heads quickly pointed out that Drizzy himself had channeled the energy of Bishop. Fortunately for him, things worked out better in the end and the Raps won the Eastern Conference.

Drizzy was dressed in the same 100 MILES hoody and black pants combo that sideline antagonist Birdie (played by Tupac Shakur) wore in the film Above The Rim. He even donned a black bandana around his neck, later wearing it over his 2019 finals cap following the huge win - completing the look. The illusion didn't totally work though, as his team won - unlike Tupac's in the film, leading him to order a shooting. Also, Kawhi Leonard and the Raps looked and played more like Kyle Watson (Duane Martin) and the Bombers.
Anyone interested in getting their hands on the hoody can head over to the 100 MILES online shop.
The NBA Finals kick-off on Thursday (May 30) in Toronto.
