The station announced a Drake ban in support of the Golden State Warriors, who face the Raptors in the NBA Finals..centered-ad {

Smith added, "Oh, yes, we are announcing a 3-peat."

The series between the Warriors and Raptors are currently tied 1-1. Game 3 is scheduled to take place on Wednesday night (June 5) at the Oracle A
