Drake has a suit jacket lined with vintage Vince Carter Raptors jersey (PHOTO)

It’s Drake Night in Toronto as the Raptors host the Nets on Saturday, and the Canadian recording artist who has taken the job of rebranding the franchise pulled out all the stops when getting his personal wardrobe together for the special occasion.

That’s an old school Vince Carter jersey stitched into his jacket lining, a reminder of the best times the Raptors saw in terms of the team’s on-court success.

    I miss that Vince Carter.. Man that guy was unreal. He’s really remolded himself nicely the last few years, but my god, back then I thought at any moment that guy could’ve backflipped over a defender’s head if he wanted to. Nice guy too. Almost too nice at times. His brother really wore him down down mentally, but he still kept going for him, starting all kinds of organizations and rehabs for addicts. An athlete among mere mortals, I honestly thought he’d never come down to Earth.

      When u think about it, Lebron has VC’ athleticism.

        The problem is I don’t think about it.

        Although I do reminisce every few months about how the 2000 Dunk Contest was God-Like.

    Why are we thinking about that?

    XD In the picture, Drake looks like he has a big hand with 7 fingers and flipping a bird.

    One can only hope that he also has a John WItherspoon “Mushroom Suit”.

    I thought Drake was a Heat fan

      Dude, he’s Canadian. Since the Grizzlies left Vancouver they only have one team. It just so happens that in 2001 when the Raptors were the only team in the land, Vince Carter was tearing it up as superhuman levels. It gave those Canadians something to root for, since it would be 12 years until Kelly Olynyk would be drafted by the Celtics to represent. (That was a joke..)

    Was the event sponsered by Disney?

    That was a wonderful comment. Too many negative nellies running amok these days.

      Thank you.

      With that, I must admit I’m also a pretty negative, sarcastic ass most of the time.. but I have a soft side.
