    Instead of Alicia Keys for that ambassador role. Look at the buzz he created with the Toronto Raptors today! Discuss.

    Makes sense. A Toronto native. Hip-hop scene... might of worked. Would of still need to close the app gap for the demographic that would of been targeted.The moment this demographic would of found out that there wasn't an Instragram, BBRY would of had a different sort of PR issue.

    I guess only basketball fans, hip hop fans or Toronto people care, because it does not matter in California.

    Are they serious? Alicia keys gets a nobody to open for her and sellout a world tour, drake needs anothee artists near his caliber, and lil wayne to sellout a tour. alicia keys reached twice as many people with her tour, but like another poster said, gotta fill the app gap cause u could get any celeb you want, but the product is still the same.

    Induvidual celebrity endorsements are a waste of money IMO. Better off sponsoring arena and stadium billboards, more chance of it showing up on news \ sports highlights reels for extra exposure

    Lol, if Drake is all that's needed to fix the Toronto Cr@ptors then I suppose Mayor Rob Fatty-McCheese should start planning the parade route along with the Maple Leaf Stanley Cup Ceremony.

    Unless you're a Lacross or CFL fan Sports teams in Toronto generally suck and will never get better. Especially when people still pay to watch the Leafs lose and the Raptors get routed no matter what.

    To each their own.
    I personally don't like his 'free style' type of music.

    I will give him, that I don't mind his most recent song, however my wife says that it's the beat I like.

    Look at how Jay-Z transformed the Nets! With the help of a super rich owner and a nice rebrand, the team has attracted a bunch of seasoned vets and now they're contenders.

    I see the same happening for the Raptors.

    Did everyone forget BlackBerry sponsored U2 once upon a time? They should've sponsored Drake's upcoming tour instead of paying Alicia for doing next to nothing.

    Really? Cause the s4 has been out for months and I see 3 ads a day up until this point, surely that plays a role?
