Drake Gets Pranked by the Nets at the Barclays Center [VIDEO]
Drake was on the receiving end of a funny prank during the Game 6 playoff matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors on Friday (May 2).
According to USA Today, the people working the Jumbotron camera caught Drizzy slippin’ and decided to poke fun at him.
During a brief timeout in the second quarter, the Nets put Drake on the big screen and photoshopped a Nets jersey on him. To add insult to injury, they blasted Jay Z’s classic anthem ‘Public Service Announcement (Interlude)’ through the speakers.
Drake caught wind of it and wasn’t too happy when he saw the image on the screen. The look on his face is priceless.
On top of that, the Nets beat the Raptors 97-83, which sends the series back to Toronto for a final Game 7.
The hilarious prank may add more fuel to the ongoing lyrical tiff between Hov and Drizzy.
During Game 1 in Toronto, Drake threw a jab at Jay Z, who used to be the minority owner of the Nets.
“Jay Z is somewhere eating a fondue plate,” he quipped. “It’s our time. We’ve got to keep it competitive. This is an ironic matchup.”
We don’t know if Jay Z was the mastermind behind the prank but it looks like he and Beyonce were amused by it.
