While Toronto Raptors’ Global Ambassador and rapper Drake didn’t make the trip to the Bay Area to watch Game 6 of the NBA Finals live, he’s got a nice setup back home. It’s become a common theme for a massive number of Raptors fans to go to Jurassic Park and watch the team’s games. Whether they’re playing at home or on the road, fans have flocked to what’s become one of the NBA’s most popular viewing parties.
At various points throughout the playoffs when Toronto is playing on the road, we’ve seen Drake opt to join the fans at Jurassic Park and take his place on stage. But for Game 6 of the series against the Golden State Warriors, he took things to another level with his own private couch.
Even beyond that, as Steve Jones Jr. revealed, Drake was on stage with roughly 15-18 other people and the couch looked to be dedicated to just him.

It’s unknown exactly who the others are on stage with Drake, but regardless, the diehard Raptors fan obviously needed some space while watching the team attempt to win their first NBA title.
Drake Addresses Kevin Durant Injury
Drake hasn’t shied away from the spotlight during the Raptors’ impressive playoff run, but one moment which stood out came during Game 5 in Toronto. After Kevin Durant suffered the injury which was later revealed to be a ruptured Achilles tendon, Drake was seen visibly upset and proceeded to console the Warriors star as he was helped off the floor.

While we’ve seen Drake do a bit of trash talking throughout the postseason, including jawing back-and-forth with Draymond Green and Stephen Curry, it was obvious he felt for Durant after the injury. Shortly after the game, the rapper sent a strong message to KD on Instagram, stating that his only concern was the forward’s well being.
Drake Celebrates Raptors’ NBA Championship Win
When the Raptors officially closed out the series with a 114-110 win on Thursday night, there was no shortage of excitement seen in videos posted all around Toronto. Not surprisingly, Drake’s celebration on stage at Jurassic Park was among the first to go viral.
As Complex Sports showed, Drake went wild while already sporting a championship hat.
