NBA superstar DeMar DeRozan recently relied on the 6 God to help him ease some serious pain. The All-Star has addressed his publicized San Antonio Spurs trade and how much of a positive impact Toronto Raptors global ambassador Drake had on him once the news went viral.
According to DeRozan, Drizzy chopped it up with him last week at his crib notably on the topic of how much he meant to Toronto.
“[The] day it came out, I went to Drake’s house. Me and him sat and talked for a couple of hours. Not even on some hoops stuff. Just to hear the words that come from him being the person that he is in this world, especially in Toronto. What I meant to this city. It was what I needed.” (ESPN)
Last weekend, DeRozan reflected on his time as a Raptor and dished on what T.O. meant to him.
Heading into last weekend, Toronto Raptors global ambassador Drake suggested newly acquired player Kawhi Leonard is destined to play in Canada.
Kawhi is just combination of the words Kawall and Wallahi. The man was destined to play for the Raptors.

Last week, Drake penned an open letter bidding farewell to DeRozan and welcoming Leonard to the city.
