A senior executive for the agency that represents Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is speaking out regarding the antics of rapper Drake.

Sitting in his usual seat near the Raptors bench throughout Game 4 on Tuesday night when Toronto beat the Bucks 120-102, Drake made his presence felt. Security&him both allow it. Dimitropoulos tweeted early Thursday that he had "never seen anything as disrespectful" as Drake's unexpected sideline performance a night earlier.

Dimitropoulos later deleted the tweet.

Drake, an avid Raptors fan, regularly trolled Antetokounmpo throughout the game and laughing when he missed free throws. There's also footage of Drake giving Raptors' coach Nick Nurse a neck massage as his team managed an impressive lead against the Bucks.

Antetokounmpo scored 25 points in Game 4 but shot just 6-of-10 from the free throw line and airballed a free throw for the second consecutive contest.

As the Toronto Raptors have rallied to draw even in their Eastern Conference Finals matchup with the Bucks, much of the postgame discussion hasn't been about the Raptors' play on the court.

Antetokounmpo was not asked about Drake after Tuesday's game, but Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer reacted Wednesday.

"I don't know how much he's on the court", Budenholzer added. "It sounds like you guys are saying it's more than I realize".

While some took exception to his dramatics on the court, Raptors fans were quick to point out that the rapper is a team ambassador, has a locker at the arena and might be the most famous person in Canada.

"I didn't even know I got the shoulder rub last night until somebody showed me a picture of it today", he said.

The vast majority of us in the sports world could do with less Drake in our lives.

Last year, the National Basketball Association reportedly warned the world-famous artist about "the use of bad language" after he traded barbs with Cleveland Cavaliers centre Kendrick Perkins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
