Kerr fined Drake for making Steph, Draymond late for flight

Steve Kerr doesn't bend his team rules, even for Warriors stars like Steph Curry and Draymond Green.

During a pregame media availability before a matchup with the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, Kerr recalled an amazing story about Draymond and Steph being late for the Warriors' team plane because they were hanging out with Toronto native and Raptors fan Drake.

"Eric Housen, our travel man, called Steph and he said, 'Oh, my fault, I'm with Drake and Draymond, we're at the arena still, sorry we're late,' " Kerr told reporters. "We had a team rule at the time, that you could bring a friend on the plane a couple times a year. Unbeknownst to me, Steph decided to use one of his slots for Drake, 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, you can ask him, true story."

Given that Drake famously mentioned the Warriors "running practice at my house" in his song "Summer Sixteen," it's not surprising that he found his way onto a team flight.

Drake has courtside seats for Raptors home games, and exchanged plenty of trash talk with Kevin Durant and the rest of the Warriors' roster during the 2019 NBA Finals.

Even when a major celebrity like Drake found his way onto the team plane, Kerr wasn't going to forget about his rules.
