Toronto Raptors Gift Drake a $769000 Jacket

The Toronto Raptors were feeling generous before game four of the Eastern Conference finals series on Tuesday night, gifting Drake with a custom-made blazer worth an estimated $769,000.

The President of the club raptors Masai, Ozeri gave the rapper and team Ambassador jacket, especially for the stars made a clothing designer from Toronto Harrison Bespouk.

Drake has gained a reputation at Toronto Raptors games for loudly participating in his hometown squad's games from his courtside vantage point. It marks a big year for the partnership between the team and its most famous celebrity fan. The jacket, which was approved by Drake's team in advance, features at least 235 diamonds, which were hand-embroidered into the shape of the OVO owl on the right side. "This is truly a 1 of 1 piece", he said. "And the diamonds, of course".

Speaking with The Star, Michael Nguyen, the clothier behind the jacket, gushed about the one-of-a-kind piece.

On the inside, there's a City Edition Raptors jersey - which Drake helped design in OVO's colour scheme - while on the left lapel sits a 1.2 carat diamond pin.

Like an overeager poor man's Spike Lee, Drake jumped on every opportunity to call the attention of TNT cameras and social media to himself during the Raptors' blowout win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
