National Basketball Association warns Drake after verbal confrontations with Cleveland Cavaliers' Kendrick Perkins

Canadian rapper Drake has been asked to tone down his behaviour after getting into an argument with Kendrick Perkins.

The NBA issued an official warning to Drake about 'the use of bad language, ' according to an article on Thursday by ESPN.

Cavaliers guard Jose Calderon, who used to play for the Raptors, stood in front of Drake during his exchange with Perkins.

According to the NBA's Fan Code of Conduct, the league is 'committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable sports & entertainment experience'. A tweet from well-known National Basketball Association reporter Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that Cavs reserve player Kendrick Perkins claims that he was talking with his former teammate Serge Ibaka who is now a member of the Raptors. But Drake is one of the Raptors' global ambassadors. Security and other Cleveland players kept the two apart. Drake later wrote on Instagram: "I just said I liked the hem on his capris".

Supreme Court collegium defers decision on Justice KM Joseph's elevation
Regional representation was another reason for the Centre to seek reconsideration of Collegium's decision. Lokur and Kurien Joseph is expected to take the final decision by Monday or Tuesday next.

Drake and Perkins also exchanged words after the Cavaliers beat the Raptors in overtime 113-112. "It's the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Toronto Raptors", Perkins said.

"At the end of the day, it isn't about Perk versus Drake; that doesn't even sound right", Perkins told ESPN of the warning.

If Drake does start taunting members of the Cavaliers during Game 2 on Thursday, he'll have to come up with some respectful insults.
