The NBA fined the Raptors $25,000 due to a tampering violation by Drake. The rapper invited Kevin Durant to join the team as Durant attended his Toronto music festival.
The NBA is stable in punishing public displays of tampering, yet; according to The Globe and Mail’s Cathal Kelly; there is another way out.
The NBA offered to drop the fine if the team agreed to strip Drake of his title, yet the Raptors refused.
What do you think? Was this truly a second option for the Raptors or was this an opportunity for the league to attempt to run one of the most popular celebrities in the world out of the NBA?
