It's no secret that Drake is a huge NBA fan, so with that in mind, it's time to look back on some of his most memorable lyrics related to the two teams in this year's NBA Finals: the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors.

In "Summer Sixteen," Drake said, "Golden State running practice at my house."

Which was sort of a true story.

"[It was] me versus my brother-in-law, with Drake and his boys and some of my family in the stands," Warriors point guard Steph Curry told Adam Fleischer of MTV.com in 2016.

Curry has come up in Drake lyrics as well, such as this segment from "0-100/The Catch Up."

"If I ain't the greatest then I'm headed for it / That mean I'm way up (way up) / Yeah, the 6 ain't friendly but that's where I lay up / This s--t a mothaf--kin' lay up / I been Steph Curry with the shot / Been cookin' with the sauce, Chef Curry with the pot, boy."

And there was this line from "Still Here."

"I gotta talk to God even though he isn't near me / Based on what I got, it's hard to think that he don't hear me / Hittin' like that 30 on my jersey, man, I'm gifted."

Drake also gave a shout-out to Kevin Durant, from his Oklahoma City Thunder days, in "Weston Road Flows."

"A lot of people just hit me up when my name is mentioned / Shout-out to KD, we relate, we get the same attention / It's rainin' money, Oklahoma City Thunder / The most successful rapper 35 and under."

Drake even mentioned being a Raptors team ambassador on the song "0-100/The Catch Up."

"F--k all that rap-to-pay-your-bill s--t / I'm on some Raptors-pay-my-bills s--t."

It's unclear whether massaging head coach Nick Nurse during the game is considered part of his duties as a team ambassador.

Oh, and he has his own club in Toronto's Scotiabank Arena: Sher Club. So obviously, Drake gave that some love in "30 for 30 Freestyle."

"I got a club in the Raptors arena / Championships, celebrations during regular seasons."

And of course, we can't talk Drake and basketball references without giving some attention to Raptors legend Vince Carter, as the hip-hop artist did in "Weston Road Flows."

"Been flowin' stupid since Vince Carter was on some through-the-legs, arm-in-the-hoop s--t."

From Carter to Kawhi Leonard and a berth in the NBA Finals, life is good for Drake and his fellow Raptors fans.
