Why didn't Drake attend the Toronto Raptors' road games in Oakland during the NBA Finals? Because the league asked him not to, according to TMZ. Drake's dad, Dennis Graham, confirmed that his son was asked to stay in Toronto due to "security issues" that might have occurred on the Golden State Warriors' home floor if the hip-hop star got up to his usual sideline antics. "With rowdy fans, you can't take chances," said Graham.
