Drake appeared to help force Justin Holiday into a five-second inbound violation during Monday’s Bulls-Raptors game.

Holiday, via Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago:

“No, he wasn’t bothering me,” Holiday said. “There were thousands of fans in the building yelling at the same time. It’s not like I was going to hear one guy yelling.

“I couldn’t hear him that play. That play I wasn’t worried about him. I came and it took it out again and he said something to me before I got the ball, but that play, no, you can see in my face. If I heard him I would have made a face like (I did).”

“I guess (it made me famous),” Holiday said. “I don’t really care about the fans. I just want to win games.

“I’ve gotten the links from everyone I’ve known. That was hilarious. But obviously he had nothing to do with the play and what happened.”
