The Raptors have taken a 3-2 series lead over the 76ers, one win away from advancing to the Conference Finals but Joel Embiid told Drake after their Game 5 loss that Philly will be back in Toronto for Game 7.
When Sixers big man Embiid was checked out by his coach and as he returned to his bench, rapper Drake, who was sitting courtside, started to do the airplane dance, which was then mimicked by various members of the Toronto crowd.

After the game, Embiid was asked about it all.
That’s when the Sixers star explained that he told Drake that he will be back in Toronto for Game 7 on Sunday. Of course, if Embiid wants a chance to play in Game 7, he’ll have to carry his team to victory in Game 6 on Thursday.

Im Embiid’s only motivation to return to Toronto for a Game 7 is Drake, he needs to take a look in the mirror.
How can you trust the process if that process involves revenge on fanboy Drake.
