(Newser) – Drake started at the bottom floor seats, but now he’s here … atop the Toronto Raptors efforts to rebrand the team. The basketball team announced the Toronto native rapper is now a "global ambassador" for the franchise. Defining Drake's role is kind of tough, but he's expected to be involved with redesigning jerseys and the team logo. It’s not exactly a slam dunk though. See, the Raptors aren’t very good.
