Lowry started by shouting out the Raptors’ all-woman broadcast, the first in NBA history. He then noted how crazy it would’ve been to play this game in Toronto with fans instead of Tampa. He then switched his attention to Drake, who’d called him up just then.

“Guys, we have a special guest here.,” Lowry said before showing his phone, which had Drake on the other end, to reporters.

“If you guys have any… I’m here to translate. I’m his translator,” Drake can be heard saying.

“No you’re not. No… I’ll hit you when I’m done, bro,”
