Drake Uses 'Curse' To Raptors' Advantage And Fans Couldn't Be Happier

Just hold on, we're leaving home ... to attend the conference finals!

Toronto's Drake had more than enough reason to pop some bottles last night after the Raptors stunning win against the Philadelphia 76ers in a crunch Game 7 of their Eastern Conference second-round series.

The now-bougie, jet-owning, superstar rapper has a track record of attending various sporting events, most notably as a courtside fixture at Toronto Raptors games. Unfortunately, there's also a lengthy track record of teams losing whenever Drake shows up as a hype man.

And so, Drake did what any other curse-inducing massive Raps fan would (and should) do. He stayed away from attending the final game, and instead watched it on TV.

AS Roma later tweeted that "All Roma players banned from taking photos with Drake until the end of the season."

He has also been connected with Alabama' football's loss in the 2019 national championship game, a Connor McGregor loss at UFC 236 and a 2015 Serena Williams loss at the U.S Open, among others.

And the Drake curse grew in notoriety when it was inferred that the Raptors were unable to break through to the NBA Finals due to one of their biggest fans. But now he finally recognizes ...
