Amir Johnson wants his fans to have the new Drake album

Sep 25, 2013, 12:35 PM EST

If you’re already taking bets on who will perform at the 2016 NBA All-Star Game halftime show in Toronto, remember that Canadians love them some Drake. Who just so happens to be Canadian. (So is Rush, but I’m guessing they don’t get to play.)

NBA players love Drake, too. So when you combine the fact there are NBA players working out in Canada when the new Drake album — Nothing Was The Same — dropped, this is what you get.

First, Amir Johnson of the Raptors goes to the local record shop (support those stores, people) and buys every copy of the new Drake CD.

Then he gives away the CD to his fans.

Crazy, but not the craziest thing Johnson has done this summer.

And in case you forgot, Johnson has gotten in a little run with Drake (and Justin Beiber, another Canadian, but they can keep him).
