Toronto Raptors honor Drake by naming training facility the OVO Athletic Centre

Vaughn Ridley/Getty ImagesDrake is an official Toronto Raptors global ambassador, and now the team's refurbished training facility bears the name of his company, OVO.

The team announced that the facility has been renamed in honor of the record-setting rapper.

“We made it happen. Introducing the OVO Athletic Centre.” the Raptors tweeted, along with a video of Drake interacting with the team members.

“Introducing the OVO Athletic Centre, the official training facility for the Toronto Raptors,” the “Nice for What” rapper commented on an Instagram photo of the building.

“I just wanted to add that I am so proud of my brothers and so proud to be from this city," he added. "I swear this one feels like a high school dream and it’s a blessing to be able to raise up the levels and make the human mind stretch when it comes to thinking about what is possible in your lifetime!! Much love to everyone involved.”

The Raptors honored Drizzy with "Drake Night" this past Saturday, recognizing his contributions to the team and the city.
