To those unaware, Drake is a global Ambassador for the raptors, Im frankly not sure what he does other than helping with the head office for rebranding the team?
So it is sort of a shocker to see the raptors get fined for this.
So the NBA would waive the fine if the raptors fire Drake, their global Ambassador.
WHy would the NBA want to do that? if that's the case, the nba should offer Mark Cuban the Chance to sell his team if he wants to waive his next Tampering fee.
http://www.thescore.com/nba/news/554517On Monday, we learned that the NBA fined the Raptors $25,000 due to a tampering violation by official ambassador Drake. The rapper invited Kevin Durant to join the team during his big Toronto music festival recently with the reigning MVP in attendance. Fans chanted and everything.
The NBA is pretty consistent in punishing public displays of tampering, so there was really no other option here. Except, according to The Globe and Mail's Cathal Kelly, there was a choice. - See more at: http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articl....dZiDu4KN.dpuf
