Obama, Drake, Trump & NBA Finals

Obama, Drake, Trump & NBA Finals


We are in prime time
for game 3 of the finals between the Golden State
Warriors and Toronto Raptors from Oakland, California. I never thought I’d
have to say this, but the NBA Finals are
finally back in America, where God and Donald
Trump intended them to be. [CHEERING] The first two games
were in Toronto. The Canadians were, as
usual, very gracious hosts. They even wrote a
letter of apology for winning the first game. [LAUGHTER] The Raptors had a good chance
to win it on Sunday, too. They had a solid lead
in the first half. The Warriors went scoreless
for more than five minutes and still won. You know you have
a good team when you can win even though
you players stopped to take a nap for five minutes. Not only did
Toronto drop game 2, they forgot to check
in their flight online. They got stuck with boarding
group C on a Southwest flight to Oakland.
So– [LAUGHTER]
–right. Yeah, but this is
a big deal, this first international match-up. And it’s a little
bit scary, too. You know, the last time a team
of Raptors came to California, they almost killed Chris Pratt. [LAUGHTER] Kawhi Leonard had another
great game for the Raptors– 34 points, 14 rebounds. They love Kawhi in Toronto. And he has a new
billboard in the Bay Area, warning the Warriors and their
fans that the King of the North is coming. [LAUGHTER] Now, this is, besides
being the gentlest taunting I’ve ever seen– look out, Oakland, your
opponent is coming– he’s scheduled to show
up, but it’s also– it’s just a bad comparison. I mean, did they watch the show? Things didn’t exactly work out
well for the King of the North. He had sex with a woman
he found out was his aunt, killed here, and then
got sent to live out his days in the forest, so– But anyway, the real star of the
game wasn’t Kawhi or John Snow. It was this guy– ANNOUNCER: The 44th President
of the United States! It’s Mr. Barack Obama! [CHEERING] That’s President Obama. He got a standing
ovation and chants of MVP from the fans in
Toronto, which means President Trump is
now going to build a wall around Canada, too. [LAUGHTER] Obama was a guest
of the commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver. They sat next to each other. And look at– look at how much
fun they’re having together. Isn’t that–
[LAUGHTER] –some kind of big ear’s
convention going on there. [LAUGHTER] Barack Obama, for those
who don’t remember, is the president who didn’t
congratulate championship teams with a mountain of
cold Chicken McNuggets, but he arrived at
the game in style, sporting a leather jacket. Look at him. He’s like Bad Sandy at
the end of the “Grease.” [CHEERING] The other big star at the game
was Drake, who is attracting a lot of attention this series. Drake is rooting for the Raptors
and feuding with the Warriors. For game 1, Drake
wore a throwback jersey of Steph
Curry’s dad, Dell Curry, who played for Toronto. And on Sunday, he took a
little poke at the injured Kevin Durant with this “Home
Alone”-themed hoodie that says, Kevin?! [LAUGHTER] So someone’s been the
hot topic this week. But Drake has
really been getting into it with the Warriors. This is after the
Raptors won game 1. Read Drake’s lips here. He wrote– he said, you’re
trash, to Draymond Green. And then, after game 2, Kevin
Durant and Klay Thompson– I love that Drake is
making fun of Kevin Durant for not playing,
as if he does play. [LAUGHTER] Well, I guess Drake and
Draymond went to dinner together after game 1, which only a
Canadian would trash talk a guy and then text him, OK, so the
reservation’s under my name. [LAUGHTER] We have a great show
for you tonight. A warrior from Wakanda, Chadwick
Boseman, is here with us tonight. [CHEERING] And later on, I will go head
to head with Metta World Peace in a game of dunk tanks,
called “Sink It or Swim” Two men enter. One leaves wet. Let’s check in with
Metta right now, who is– oh, you’re on the
dunk tank, already, Metta. I’m warming up for you, Jimmy. [CHEERING] I’m warming up for you. JIMMY KIMMEL: I hope you’re
not practicing there. I’m– you know, I got
to cheat a little bit. JIMMY KIMMEL: Have you ever
been dunked in a tank before? This is the first. The water is really cold, so
I’m trying not to get in there. JIMMY KIMMEL: All right.
Well, we got you some floaties. And we made a bet on this. If I win, Metta has agreed to
go back to being Ron Artest. And if he wins, I will
become Cynthia Bigelow. That’s right.
[LAUGHTER] So all right, Metta,
I’ll see you later. See you soon. JIMMY KIMMEL: Get ready
to get wetta, Metta.
