NBA Issues Warning to Drake Over "Bad Language"

Game 1 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors somehow morphed into a back and forth between two people who got zero playing time on the court. This move is a part of the NBA's new emphasis on subduing the demeaning fan misconduct that has become a consistent issue within the league. While he did have a good laugh at the fact that Drake got a warning, he said the Raps might be leading the series if Drake wasn't sitting on the sidelines.

Now, the National Basketball Association has issued an official warning to Drake about "the use of bad language" ... this according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Canadian rapper is a huge Raptors fan and is often seen sitting courtside at Toronto home games. "If he leaves me alone, I'll leave him alone, and that's all there is".

The pair exchanged words as the Raptors and Cavaliers headed to the tunnels at halftime.

It was not clear if Bruns had been driving the auto at the time of those violations. Attorney information for Bruns on Thursday was not immediately available.

Perkins told ESPN's Dave McMenamin he's over the incidents.

The Toronto rapper, the Raptors' global ambassador, jawed with the inactive forward at halftime and after the final whistle in Cleveland's 113-112 overtime win Tuesday at the Air Canada Centre. This includes the Cavs' very own, DJ Steph Floss.

If Drake does start taunting members of the Cavaliers during Game 2 on Thursday, he'll have to come up with some respectful insults.
