Drake is taking his position of “global ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors seriously, especially now that the Raptors are in the NBA playoffs and not doing terribly. (The Raptors beat the Brooklyn Nets last night, tying up their playoff series at 1-1.) Drake has been courtside for both of the Toronto playoff games, taking fondue-related shots at former Nets minority owner Jay Z during game one and, last night, vigorously grooming his pants while there was a game going on directly in front of him. During the game’s first quarter, TV cameras caught Drake lint-rolling his pants, causing an instant explosion of Twitter jokes. (“Started from the bottom” is your obvious go-to pun there.) Drake even posted a screencap on Instagram before the game was over, using the caption “Lint Rollers on deck.” Observe:

Maybe a mascot jumped into his lap off-camera? The Raptors’ mascot does have a history of being, um, less than agile (though I guess it’s not remotely furry).
