ESPN reporter Doris Burke revealed Drake showed her a heart sign during Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Eastern Conference Finals match between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors. Did Drake try to woo the Burke in Toronto?
During an interview with New York Magazine, Burke was asked about his thoughts on Drake’s presence every Raptors match. In response, the popular sideline reporter uttered an interesting revelation.
“Can I tell you something about the last time I was there? I just could not believe this happened. Drake turned around — my seat at game six was right behind him — makes a heart shape, and points at me,” Burke said.
Burke added she thought the “Views” singer was pointing at a woman behind her. She then turned her back to check. But when she looked at Drake again, the Canadian rapper did it again. Burke also revealed she was shocked she had to tell it to her daughter.
“I’m looking around behind me to see who’s there, turn back to him and then he points and he does it again,” Burke continued. “I texted my daughter and said, ‘You need to know Drake just did this to me.’”
Drake has yet to respond to the report, but most fans think the 29-year-old was just trying to lighten the moment during the game, where the Raptors failed to stave off elimination and took a humbling 113-87 defeat to the Cavaliers. FanSided noted that sending hearts does not necessarily mean the rapper was trying to flirt with Burke, who is 21 years older than ‘Drizzy.’
