It’s not just the Raptors vs. Golden State in the NBA finals. It’s also Drake vs. Smash Mouth. Wait–what?

God bless Drake for his enthusiastic support of Toronto and the Raptors. But a lot of people outside the city (okay, people here, too) are getting a little tired of his antics on the sidelines during Raptors’ home games.

If you wanted to get real drunk real fast during game six on Saturday night, all you had to do is take a shot whenever the camera flashed on Drake doing going nuts on the sidelines. Had you tried that, you’d have passed out from alcohol poisoning by halftime.

Love the passion, Drake, but it can be a bit much, especially when you take it upon yourself to visit the Raptors’ bench and even give coach Nick Nurse a shoulder massage in the middle of a game. Boundaries, dude.

One outfit who has had enough of Drake’s antics is Smash Mouth, who, for some reason, have become America’s answer to Nickelback when it comes to musical punching bags.

All the members of Smash Mouth are solid fans of the Golden State Warriors and would like to be clear that Drake’s actions will not be welcome in Oakland.

Nothing from Drake yet, but you know he likes a good beef.
