In the sports world, most athletes and coaches are highly superstitious, maybe hanging out with Drake isn’t the best thing to do before a championship.
Drake has a very peculiar bad luck streak that teams/players might want to think about staying away from him.
Drizzy has been spotted in so many lockers rooms that he should have a press pass. He stays on someone’s sideline and seems to hang and party with the team’s best player. According to XXLmag.com, there has been 6 instances where Drake’s endorsement has become disastrous for teams and players. .
XXL compiles a list of times Drake has seemingly jinxed his sports team/player of choice in their shining moment.
Drake is a mega fan of Coach John Calipari and the University of Kentucky’s men’s basketball program. He even got a ring when the school won its most recent national championship in 2012.In 2014, he offered a team pep talk in the locker room after their win in the Final Four. Then they went out and lost in the championship game.
In 2015, when the Wildcats made it back to the Final Four facing University of Wisconsin, Aubrey made a very public $6,000 bet with The Game that his team would be victorious. They weren’t and Drizzy had to pay up. The usually successful squad hasn’t won a championship since the 2012 season.
Drake might be the Toronto Raptors’ biggest fan—he’s literally on the team’s payroll as their global ambassador. He’s basically the Canadian counterpart to Spike Lee, though the squad hasn’t always been able to do the right thing with Aubrey stalking the sideline.
In 2014, Drizzy participated in the Slam Dunk Contest with the Raptors’ Terrence Ross, who some saw as the favorite. Ross ended up losing to point guard John Wall.
In 2018, the team rolled into the playoffs with the best record in the Eastern Conference and the franchise’s history. Some analysts tabbed them as the team to break LeBron James’ streak of reaching the Finals. During Game 1 of the contest, Drake got into a heated argument with the Cavs’ Kendrick Perkins that was captured on cameras. Drake’s spectacle marked the start of the ending. The Raptors would go on to lose every game in the series, making an unceremonious exit.
