Throughout this entire NBA postseason, Drake, a Canadian, has been loud and clear about his intent to have his team win this year. He's been vocal to a point where he's "trolling" players of whoever they're up against, and even walking to the court during crucial moments of the game.

Of course, these moments have not gone unnoticed, and he's made quite the splash online. So when Barack Obama bumped into Drake in the finals, he made sure to check in on him and ask him for one thing: to behave himself.

A video was recorded of Barack Obama and Drake greeting one another during Game 2 of the NBA finals in Toronto, with the former President asking Drake not to be so disruptive. 

Barack Obama the sports fan

Obama entered the arena with Raptors president Masai Ujiri and watched the game beside NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during the game. Despite not being in office anymore, the Scotiabank Arena got up on their feet and gave him a standing ovation when he entered.

The former president was not in his normal suit and tie getup, as he donned a stylish black leather jacket, the same he used when he watched Duke play against North Carolina.

Barack is definitely a fan of sports, and people love that despite being a big name, he continues to do what he enjoys doing, being himself in the process.

No Stopping Drake

As for Drake, it seems he didn't follow Barack's advice at all, as right after game 3, he threw a shot at Klay Thompson by posting a bad photo of him. This comes after Thompson talked about Drake right outside his team's locker room, calling him a bum [ass] for saying he'd see him in the Bay Area. 

Things will definitely get a lot more interesting now that the championship is nearing a close, with Game 4 coming real soon.
