Drake, one of the most famous rappers in the world, sat courtside in Oklahoma City for the second half of Wednesday night's game between the Thunder and Rockets.

Why?

Good question. It’s wasn't like the Lakers or Nets were in town. Even then, it still would have been shocking. According to the Thunder broadcast, Drake was in town to see a friend.

The Paycom Center crowd went crazy when he appeared on the big screen in the third quarter.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Lu Dort, Canadian natives like Drake, greeted the rapper with hugs after the game. Gilgeous-Alexander said he didn’t even know Drake was in town.

Thunder coach Mark Daigneault unfortunately didn’t get a chance to meet Drake.

"I don’t know Drake," Daigneault said, "and Drake certainly doesn’t know who I am."
