Drake ends up on Lakers' bench, chats up Kobe Bryant

Tuesday December 2nd, 2014

Starting a season 4-13 in the twilight of your career can't feal great, but it seems as though Kobe Bryant is at least managing to keep things light.

Here he is with Drake during the Los Angeles Lakers' 129-122 overtime win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

It would've been great to hear what exactly Kobe said, but as Arash Markazi of ESPN points out, Drake's the bigger topic here. The Raptors' brand ambassador has something of a reputation for always rooting for the winning team... but this? On the opponent's bench, when that opponent is the 4-13 Lakers and the 4-13 Lakers are dropping 129 points on your team?
