Drake Takes Down Another Philly Native, Lead Canada To Victory In All-star Celebrity Game, Receives Key To City

| February 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Drake takes another Philadelphia native down as the 4x MVP Kevin Hart tries to avenge hometown hero Meek Mill rap battle loss by beating Drake at a game he knows so well: basketball. To make matters worst Drake added salt to the wound before the game shading Meek Mill as well as Philly:

“If we’re talking city versus city, it’s been a tough year for you.”

Congrats to #Drake on receiving the key to the city!

Before he even drew up his first play Drake, who was Team Canada’s coach in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, received a key to the city of Toronto, presented to him by the city’s mayor, John Tory.

And by the end of the night he took home another prestigious trophy as he coached Team Canada to a victory over team USA despite last year’s MVP and this year’s coach Kevin Hart coming off the bench to activate himself out of retirement.

For Canada, HGTV’s Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott, teamed with Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler to form a powerful frontline. Butler, who was named the game’s MVP, finished with 15 points. Canada also got banner performances from professional tennis player Milos Raonic, who threw down an impressive two-handed dunk just before halftime, as well as Tracy McGrady, who while technically an American, qualified as a member of Team Canada as a former member of the Toronto Raptors. McGrady finished with 18.

Final: Canada 74, USA 64
