I called him on his cell phone! – Kerr defuses Drake talk with dad joke
Steve Kerr is unconcerned about Canadian rapper Drake's impact on the NBA Finals, with the Golden State Warriors head coach more worried over how his daughter would view him after his "dad joke" about the Toronto Raptors superfan.
Drake's courtside antics received plenty of publicity during the Eastern Conference Finals as he laughed at Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo missing a free throw and pumped up the Toronto crowd during the six-game series.
He was named the Raptors' global ambassador in 2013 and has been vocal about his belief in the team as of late.
Kerr was relaxed about Drake ahead of Game 1 of the NBA Finals, though, even referencing one of his most well-known lyrics from 'Hotline Bling'.
"I'm not worried about Drake. I called him on his cell phone earlier," Kerr told reporters.
"My daughter's rolling her eyes right now. She's like, 'Dad, no more dad jokes'."
