It is no secret that Drake loves his Toronto Raptors. The Hip Hop superstar and ambassador for the Canadian franchise can often been seen at courtside in the Air Canada Centre cheering on the team.

It is also no secret that the Toronto native likes to use social media, most notably Instagram.

During the first round of the playoffs, Drake trolled Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George with an image of the forward with a tear drop under his eye, following the Raptors' huge comeback win in game five, before quickly deleting the post.

After the franchise north of the border avoided going 3-0 down to the Cleveland Cavaliers in their Eastern Conference Finals series with a 99-84 win, the artist turned his attentions to LeBron James.

Taking to Instagram once again, he poked fun at LeBron, who ended game three with 24 points, eight rebounds and five assists, by posting an old image of a bemused-looking James.

Drake's trolling could come back to bite him, though, as the Cavaliers are still the unanimous favourites to advance to the NBA Finals.

Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving both had poor shooting nights, with the former sitting the entire fourth quarter after scoring just three points. They are unlikely to have such bad games again, and it could spell trouble for the Raptors.
