Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball - Cavaliers News, Scores, Stats, Rumors & More

Canadian rapper Drake has been given a warning by the National Basketball Association over bad language, according to ESPN. "I'm here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers".

The NBA has warned Drake about "the use of bad language", a league source told 's Adrian Wojnarowski, after the rapper and Cleveland's Kendrick Perkins traded angry words as the Cavs and Raptors left the court at halftime of Game 1 Tuesday night. Drake, who is also the global ambassador of the Raptors, was seen getting into a heated exchange with Cavs center Kendrick Perkins.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey, who often stands next to Drake's courtside niche, said he had no problems with the franchise's most famous fan. In another part of the video clip, security or staff from inside the arena are shown talking about what happened with Drake who is claiming he never said anything to Perkins.

"Drake butted in, talking shit to me", Perkins told ESPN. "I mean, really. If he leaves me alone, I'll leave him alone, and that's all there is".

The United States pushing Saudi Arabia to war against Iran
President Donald Trump has strongly backed Saudi Arabia in its efforts to counter Iran's influence. He added that the presence of US troops in the region is a source of insecurity and violence.

Drake and Perkins also exchanged words after the Cavaliers beat the Raptors in overtime 113-112. Based on just the first game, and the Drake vs. Perkins near-fight, this series will probably have plenty more drama on the way for fans.

Game 2 takes place tonight (May 3) in Toronto.

The Raptors hosted game two on Thursday and Cleveland won 128-110.
