The Toronto Raptors held one of the weirdest NBA giveaways you’re likely to see for a long time on Wednesday night. After Drake, the rapper and Toronto native, was spotted lint-rolling his pants while sitting courtside for Game 2 of the Raptors-Nets series last week, the Raps gave out free lint rollers inspired by the musician during Game 5 north of the border.
The lint rollers – which were actually the idea of fans on social media – feature the Raptors’ logo as well as the emblem for Drake’s record label, October’s Very Own.
However, if you want to be able to roll your pants like a superstar, you’re going to need to buy superstar seats. The Raptors distributed vouchers to 1,200 fans sitting in exclusive and courtside seats.

Because when you think about it, why would the peasants in regular seats need to roll their pants if they’re just going to be hidden behind the seat in front of them?[Larry Brown Sports] discussion by Sidelines
