Drake watches Raptors with Adonis
Recently, rapper Drake took his son to watch the Toronto Raptors team get a crucial 124-114 win over the Charlotte Hornets, as Sports Brief reported.
The popular Canadian star sat courtside with his five-year-old son, Adonis Graham to watch his team claim an important victory.
Adonis wore Puma White & Red Lamelo's, probably because he was watching Hornets point guard Lamelo Ball, who signed a multi-year deal with the brand in 2020.
