Oh, he really did it, didn’t he?
If you’re looking for a scapegoat for the Sixers' Game 7 loss to the Raptors Sunday night (see observations) beyond the normal Twitter arguments, look no further.
It appears that Drake invoked his alleged “curse” on Philadelphia by rocking an old pair of Sixers shorts to watch the game. He posted it on his Instagram story seconds after Kawhi Leonard sealed the game with a shot so insane, it’ll probably appear in the lyrics of the rapper’s next album.
Check out the screenshot from his Instagram story for yourself.
This is bold. And it also explains a lot about why he wasn’t sitting in his regular spot in the arena, as I’m sure he didn’t want Raptors fans thinking he cared about supporting Philadelphia.
The Drake curse has widely been a phenomenon since he was spotted wearing a Maple Leafs jersey to Game 4 of the NHL playoffs. He has also been connected with Alabama' football's loss in the 2019 national championship game, an AS Roma loss, a Connor McGregor loss at UFC 236 and a 2015 Serena Williams loss in the U.S Open, among others.
It appears the curse is alive and well, with his latest victim being the Sixers.
