With the signing of rap megastar Drake as the team's global ambassador, the Toronto Raptors are showing the rest of the NBA that they just wanna be Successful.

They started from the bottom, now they're here. Drake is the best they've ever had. This story is making massive Headlines.

Don't worry. The song analogies are now out of my system, but you get the idea. 

Whether you enjoy his music or you don't, there's simply no denying Drake has massive mainstream popularity. From his platinum records to his numerous music awards, Drake has turned himself into arguably the biggest act on the planet.

Only good things can come from his association with the franchise. Over the course of the next few seasons, you will slowly begin to see just how much of an impact Drizzy Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, will have. 

I'm not sure what exactly being a global ambassador entitles one to do, but with the passion he has for this new role and his undying love for the city of Toronto, this new partnership will undoubtedly lead to amazing things. 

Frankly, what do the Raptors have to lose?
