Barack Obama is one of an enormous fan of basketball. He has been a supporter of Golden State Warriors and has been friendly to Steph Curry even during his time as president.
Obama saw them play in Sunday game in Toronto. This is the second game of the NBA Finals.
He entered Scotiabank Arena before the start and walked in with a nice looking leather jacket. It was a clear indication that he was going to delight in watching the game. He exchanged a hug with Drake before the match began. Obama has not attended NBA playoff game since at least before his election.
Fans stormed in twitter, expressing their feelings for the leather jacket. One fan said that Obama is the coolest guy ever for appearing in the Grease Danny Zuko leather jacket in June.
The visits were publicized just a few hours before the game. He had regaled MVP chants even among Canadian fans. Drake behavior did not get the attention as in game 1. The Warriors won 109-104 and took the opportunity behind the scene to clap back at Drake.
Drake showed up to the game in a T-shirt bearing the image of Macaulay Culkin in “Home Alone.” Under it was written, “Kevin,” a reference to Kevin Durant who missed his second game of the series with a sore calf muscle. When Durant might return is a question, though he is expected back before the series concludes.
Drake, who has Durant and Steph Curry’s numbers tattooed on his arm, hasn’t revealed if he will make the trip to Oracle Arena in Oakland on Wednesday for Game 3.
