Cavaliers Mute Warriors References in Drake’s ‘Free Smoke’

Drake‘s “Free Smoke” bumps throughout Quicken Loans Arena before every Cleveland Cavaliers home game.

Curiously absent from the song, however, are lyrics that reference the Warriors’ Oracle Arena and Kevin Durant.

Mama never used to cook much
Used to chef KD
Now me and Chef, KD
Bet on shots for twenty G’s

And again, before the Cavs’ first-round matchup with the Pacers on Saturday, Sports Illustrated noticed this from the arena’s loud speakers.

Coincidence? Of course not. The rivalry is real.
