The most polarizing and recognizable celebrity sports fan was it at again this weekend.
Toronto native and Raptors' global ambassador Drake took in his team's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, and his interesting outfit overshadowed an easy win.
Drake appeared to go with a 1980s theme for the day, wearing a nondescript cream sweater and some eyewear that might be described as Granny Glasses.

Twitter users had a lot to say about Drake's outfit, and the comparisons were spot-on:

Drake's glasses were featured prominently when the cameras cut to him celebrating after James Johnson's thunderous dunk:

The last time Drake earned this much attention at a Raptors game, it was because he was caught using a lint roller on his pants. Sure enough, Drake and the Raptors turned that into a marketing opportunity.
Could the same be true of this outfit?
everyone is making fun of drake's courtside sweater and glasses like he's not gonna turn that into a business opportunity imminently

While Drake is tearing down courtside fashion boundaries, his Raptors are off to the best start in the Eastern Conference. At 6-1, Toronto is atop the Atlantic Division and leading the NBA with an average of 107.4 points.
