Drake utilized his own curse to propel the Raptors to an Eastern Conference finals berth. The Game 7 battle between the Raptors and 76ers will go down as one of the great playoff battles in NBA playoff history. Although the 6 God was not in attendance, he was glued to the TV. Kawhi Leonard led the way with 41 points and Raptors needed every single one of them, especially his final two. In the closing seconds, Leonard hit a buzzer beater, that bounced four times around the rim, before finally hitting the net.
After a dramatic finish, Drake took to his Instagram story to reveal his 76ers team shorts. The Drake curse is real and the 6 God believes in it. It is more than just a media hypebeast story. Whenever Drake roots for a particular sports team in a big game, they lose.
Alabama Kentucky, Toronto Maple Leafs and most recently the 76ers have all been victims of the “Drake Curse.” The 6 God even wore a shirt during the NFC and AFC championship game with both the AFC and NFC Championship teams: Rams, Patriots, Chiefs and Saints. We have learned two things. The rap superstar has an incredible sense of humor, but also be aware of the “Drake Curse.”
