National Basketball Association warns Drake over 'bad language' after Kendrick Perkins incident

But a few days ago Drake took things a little bit too far it seems at the Raptors first playoff game, and that incident has now landed the Toronto rapper in hot water with the National Basketball Association.

There was not much trash for Drake to talk in Thursday night's Game 2, with the Cavaliers throttling the Raptors, 128-110.

Drake has been warned for "the use of bad language" after his heated exchange with Cleveland's Kendrick Perkins during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, according to ESPN.

The 31-year-old hip-hop mogul triggered the fracas as he chirped at Perkins during halftime.

Drake, who sits courtside at Raptors' home games in Air Canada Centre, has often engaged in good-natured banter with players such as LeBron James.

Former Raptors guard Jose Calderon stood in front of Drake during the halftime exchange as Cavs teammate JR Smith gently moved Perkins toward the locker room.

The NBA has reportedly put Drake on notice.

She added of her current relationship with Drake: "We don't have a friendship now, but we're not enemies either".

The Raptors also discussed the viral incident with the rap mogul, who is a global ambassador for the team. 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.

Now, Short says Drake's antics are actually HURTING the team he's trying to support.
