Drake Gets Trolled by Cavaliers’ Unofficial Mascot Lil’ Kev on Instagram
During the NBA playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers adopted an unofficial “mascot” named Lil’ Kev, thanks to forward Richard Jefferson. Lil Kev’ is actually an unnamed model from a Tommy Bahama advertisement whose photo Jefferson ripped out of a magazine and carries around like a real human being. Named for his striking resemblance of Cavs forward Kevin Love, the photo has made several hilarious appearances throughout the playoffs. And just like any inanimate object that becomes popular these days, Lil’ Kev has social media accounts. He recently used Instagram to troll the Raptors most vocal spokesperson, Drake.
Drizzy, a huge Rapts fan and official Global Ambassador for the squad, has been present at games and very vocal about his team all year. Aubrey even got a little cocky during the playoff series against the Indian Pacers, taking to Instagram to troll Pacers players after a win.
The OVO head recently got a taste of his own medicine after his team was ousted from the playoffs by the LeBron James led Cleveland Cavaliers. Posting the cover to Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late project on Instagram, Lil’ Kev captioned the pic, “Only view in the six is the @cavs in the finals @champagnepapi.”
Ouch. Low blow. Drake was clearly a little salty after Bron Bron and nem took care of business on Friday (May 27). Now he has a fake person with over 9K IG followers clowning him.
There’s always next year.
