Its not like the Miami Heat superstar Lebron James needs any extra motivation these days, but if he does he has it in the form of long time friend and Young Money rapper Drake. Before the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat tipped off for game 4, Drake sent a very short message to King James via BlackBerry Messenger: "Tonight is your night." And it was. Lebron scored 35 points in an overtime win that put James just one game away from the NBA finals, and five from winning his first championship ring.
While the message was short it was not the first of its kind sent by Drizzy. Drake usually sends James messages similar to this before games. Drake told yahoo! sports, “I always let him know that it’s his night,” “Let’s get it, let’s go out there with a clear mind and forget all the other stuff going on and just stay focused on the task. That ring. Tonight, I told him it was his night. And it was his night tonight.” He added, “That’s my brother, As a person, he’s an incredible guy." “It’s something about being out there, I get out of my seat and kneel on the court as if I’m about to get in the game. We’re playing on a similar wave length, “I want to see him get this ring really badly." The Young Money star was sitting court side to witness the win along side Lil Wayne.
Lebron had this to say about Drake, “What we have is real family,” “It’s not just because we are successful at what we do. We really care about one another on a day-to-day basis. Anytime you get a friend that can come and support you in what you do, I really respect that. “He has a busy schedule. I respect that. Anytime I get some free time, I try to support him as well.”
Lebron featured the Drake song "Forever" on his "More Than a Game" documentary back in 2008. Drake also appeared in a voice over role for the animated "The Lebrons" series.
It's looking like it's going to be an NBA Finals show down between the Miami Heat and the dallas mavericks. Who do you think will come out on top?
