It was a big night for Drake and Team Canada, who emerged triumphant over the Kevin Hart-coached Team USA at Friday’s NBA Celebrity All-Star Game in Toronto, with Arcade Fire’s Win Butler named the game’s MVP.

After the victory, Butler was being interviewed for ESPN by sideline reporter Sage Steele, who is apparently not a fan of Canada’s internationally admired healthcare system.
