Drake's father, Dennis Graham, was rooting for the Toronto Raptors to beat the Golden State Warriors in this year's NBA Finals for more than one reason. Turns out he had quite a bit of scratch on the outcome. 

"I am the happiest guy in the world," he told TMZ Sports. "I bet $100,000 on the game and I won $300,000."

Who wouldn't be celebrating after winning that bet? 

Graham also had an opinion on whether the Raptors should visit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or United States President Donald Trump after their title, saying the Raptors should skip the White House.

"Justin Trudeau is a much classier guy than that idiot Donald Trump," he said. 

With Danny Green already saying a White House visit was a "hard no" and Drake's father calling Trump an idiot, it sounds like a White House visit is definitely out for the Raptors.
