WATCH: Drake Fearlessly Berates Cavs’ 6-foot-10, 270-pound Kendrick Perkins

Basketball fan and also well-known rapper, Drake, cheated certain death on Tuesday night during the Toronto Raptors’ home game against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Drake, who is from Toronto, is a long-time Raptors fan. It was no surprise to see him in attendance for the monumental Game 1 between the Raptors and Cavs — which Cleveland won 113-112 in overtime.

It was surprising, however, to see Drake shouting at 6-foot-10, 270-pound Kendrick Perkins near the end of the first half. Drake appeared to be quite angry with the Cavs’ backup center.

Thank God Jose Calderon was there to hold Drake back. If he had let him loose, this could have gotten ugly. Imagine the fear in 6-foot-10, 270-pound Kendrick Perkins’ eyes as Scrappy-Doo comes charging at him.

And on Drake’s home turf! That Raptors crowd certainly would have had his back.

Look at Drake risking his life here, courtesy of this video from @KGArea21:

You’ve gotta feel bad for 6-foot-10, 270-pound Kendrick Perkins. The guy was probably terrified.

As ESPN NBA reporter Dave McMenamin captured after the game, Drake and 6-foot-10, 270-pound Kendrick Perkins exchanged some more words:

What were those words, exactly? Some context:

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Woj) said he received a text message from 6-foot-10, 270-pound Kendrick Perkins after the game:

Bold, Drake. Bold.
