Drake Becomes The First NBA Team Ambassador To Cover Major Sports Magazine

| April 2, 2016 | 0 Comments


Fresh off their franchise’s record 50 wins this season The Toronto Raptors are hoping to go deep in the playoffs.

On Wednesday SLAM Magazine revealed that the team’s Ambassador Drake will appear on the cover alongside the Toronto Raptors young guns DeMar Derozan and Kyle Lowry.

Slam Magazine’s playoff edition features Drake dressed like a head couch in a suit and the young Raptors in their black-and-gold uniforms with the tagline “6 Gods.”

“It had to be the right rapper, which Drake, with his millions of fans, upcoming album and official role as the Raptors Global Ambassador, is,” SLAM editor-in-chief Ben Osborne explained. “And it had to be the right players, which Kyle and DeMar, fresh off their All-Star spots and still hungry for their first SLAM cover, certainly are.”

SLAM 198 is slated to hit newsstands next week.
