Raptors host their third-annual 'Drake Night' on Wednesday

Any avid Toronto Raptors fan -- or just any fan of the NBA in general -- knows that superstar rapper Drake can be seen courtside at most Raptors home games.

On Sept. 30, 2013, the Raptors named Drake their Global Ambassador, and Drake -- a Toronto native and life-long fan -- called it one of the best days of his life.

Global Ambassador is a loosely defined role that is the first and only of its kind in the NBA. Essentially, Drake is tasked with promoting the Raptors in any way that he can, so long as it doesn't violate any NBA rules. One such way is 'Drake Night.'

Wednesday night is the third-annual Drake Night, an event when Drake introduces the Raptors and typically does some sort of surprise performance. In 2015, the event featured a Hotline Bling box. What does he have planned for tonight? You'll have to tune in to watch the Raptors take on the Golden State Warriors in order to find out.
