The Toronto Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers in dramatic fashion on Sunday night sealing a 92-90 win as Raptor’s Celebrity fan, Drake used his notorious “Drake curse” to his advantage, he watched the game from his house protecting his beloved team as he watched the game in a pair of Philadelphia 76ers shorts.
The rapper has a reputation of being a bad luck charm for sports teams after posing for pictures with athletes or wearing team merchandise.
Toronto are back in the conference finals for the second time in four seasons, and for Raptors fans the win was sweet revenge for a heartbreaking game-seven defeat by the 76ers 18 years earlier.
Drake has had an ongoing light-hearted beef with the 76ers for some time and used his next post to troll celebrity Philadelphia fans including comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Meek Mill.
He posted “Have a good summer boy! #ProtectKawhiatallcosts” with a picture of a sad-looking 76ers centre Joel Embiid from his college days.
With the series now clinched, Drake’s Raptors will meet the number one seeds the Milwaukee Bucks in the best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference Finals, which begin on Wednesday night in Milwaukee.
