Lebron James almost instigated Drake & Kendrick Perkins fight at National Basketball Association game

The NBA issued a warning to Drake after his sideline altercation with Kendrick Perkins. More

The beef between Drake and Perkins didn't end once that on-court cameras went offline, per Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star.

The events prompted Kiki Vandeweghe, the NBA's executive vice-president of basketball operations, to contact Raptors vice-president Masai Ujiri, ESPN reported.

The NBA has warned Drake after the rapper's verbal confrontations Tuesday night with Kendrick Perkins, a backup center for the Cleveland Cavaliers, during Game 1 of the Cavaliers' playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, a league official told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday.

It's unclear what punishment - if any - was levied against Drake as a result of the incident, which took place both at halftime and following the conclusion of the game.

"What happened was I was talking to my old teammate Serge (Ibaka) walking into halftime telling him 'We about to win this game, ' and Drake butted in talking shit to me".

The warning came after Drake during one of their exchanges called Perkins a 'f***ing p****'. League spokesperson Tim Frank said that the Raptors have also discussed this with Drake already.

Drake and Perkins also exchanged words after the Cavaliers beat the Raptors in overtime 113-112.

The Raptors hosted game two on Thursday and Cleveland won 128-110. "I'm here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers". Based on just the first game, and the Drake vs. Perkins near-fight, this series will probably have plenty more drama on the way for fans.
