When Champagne Papi isn't getting called out for his infamous courtside behavior at NBA games, he's getting fined for his off-court shenanigans.
In a recent press conference, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr revealed that he once fined Drizzy $500 for making Draymond Green and Steph Curry late to one of the team's flights.
"We had a home game, and we were flying to L.A. after our home game, and we all got to the airport, and Steph and Draymond weren't on the plane at the departure time," Steve told ABC 7 reporter Chris Alvarez on Sunday (January 10).
He went on to share that he then called the staff to find out what was going on and was told Steph and Draymond were still at the arena with Drake. "We had a team rule at the time, that you could bring a friend on the plane a couple times a year, and unbeknownst to me Steph decided to use one of his slots for Drake," Steve said. "So Drake got on the plane that night with Draymond and Steph and I fined all three of them for being late. And Drake paid his $500 fine."
Steph also spoke about the hilarious incident, telling reporters on Sunday, he and Draymond "were definitely late just chatting up with Drake." He added that Drake later referenced it in the song, "Free Smoke," in which he raps, "I took the team plane from Oracle."
See his full response below.
