Moments before Game 4 of the NBA Finals kicked off at the Scotiabank Arena on Tuesday night, the Toronto Raptors gifted Drake with a bespoke, diamond-encrusted OVO jacket worth an estimated $550,000 USD.

Fit for the team’s ambassador, the coat, which was reportedly crafted from jersey sourced from a French mill by Toronto’s Garrison Bespoke, features the OVO logo embellished with diamonds placed alongside the Raptor’s slashed basketball emblem. Additionally, the diamonds supplied by Diamond Foundry are lab-grown and carbon-neutral. “This is truly a 1 of 1 piece,” Michael Nguyen, the clothier behind the jacket, told The Star. “Both the jersey inside, which Drake himself helped design, and this very special piece of cloth. And the diamonds, of course.”

The Raptors shared the special moment via Twitter with the caption, “You don’t worry ‘bout fittin’ in when you custom made. #WeTheNorth.” Check it out below.

The Toronto Raptors went on to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks 120-102, now tying the series 2-2. Game 5 kicks off on Friday.

For more extravagant sporting goods, Paul Pogba gifted his World Cup winning France teammates with a custom championship ring.
