Rapper Drake was the Toronto Raptors fanatical mascot throughout the NBA Finals and fiercely backed his home team throughout the series.
And now the famous 'Drake curse' is finally broken after Raptors emerged victorious in Game six of the 2019 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on Thursday, June 13, in Oakland, California.
Raptors picked up their first NBA Championship and shattered the bad 'juju' said to have plagued the Toronto rapper in the sports world after most of the teams he supported suffered defeat.
Drake turned that narrative upside down on Thursday night, after the Raptors dethroned the Golden State Warriors with a 4-2 win in the best of seven NBA Finals.
According to Bleacher Report, Drake was not courtside in Oakland but rather cheered his team on from Jurassic Park in Canada.
And when the buzzer sounded Drake went ballistic and understandably so seeing us his involvement in supporting the team was visible for all the world to see.
Drake has relentlessly supported his team not just in the Finals but through the worst of years up until this moment of victory.
The win was massive for the rapper who represented the energy and passion of millions of Raptors fans.
The Raptors have brought the NBA championship home and Drake is ecstatic having played such a huge role in motivating his team and getting their minds right.
The curse is officially lifted.
He joins Lebron James and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, as the only players to win with two different teams.
