There were already plenty of funny Drake memes on the internet. But after the recent historic Toronto Raptors first win of the NBA title, the Canadian rapper is once again dominating the meme world, with his apparent expression. Drake has been a constant courtside presence during the National Basketball Association (NBA) finals over the past few weeks, cheering his favourite Toronto Raptors. He was right there, when Golden State Warriors player, Kevin Durant suffered a gruesome injury during the game. Drake’s questionable disappointed expression was caught on camera and later went viral as Durant was escorted off of the court. Toronto Raptors Beats Golden State Warriors 114-110 to Win Their First NBA Title.
The Toronto Raptors sealed their first-ever US NBA championship, in Game 6 of the finals opposite Golden State Warriors. Durant and Klay Thompson’s serious injuries, notably stood as a benefit that cost the championship. Drake later took to Instagram, as a tribute Durant and praying for his quick recovery.
Here's Drake's Instagram Post
However, it did not work out. People online began to question if his initial reaction may have involved a few crocodile tears. In no time, Drake’s reaction to Durant’s injury became a meme and the reactions are hilarious. The memes are for when you need to pretend to be shocked or disappointed when that very clearly is not the case.
