Is the Drake curse broken?

It finally happened. The Toronto Raptors clinched their first NBA championship in franchise history. And the team did it with Drake cheering for them. Drake is constantly dragged for being a "curse" on teams. He wears an Alabama football sweatshirt, and the team gets demolished in the national championship. He gave the Kentucky basketball team engraved rings, and the school hasn't wont a championship since. But finally, Drake's home team won its first championship title, and many say the curse has lifted. What do you think?

Drake's teams fall time and time again, much to the ire of fans. His commitment to certain teams is hard to miss. Drake often dons merchandise with team logos and he makes himself seen, heard, and felt on the court and the field. He is a super-fan if nothing else, but his teams have always met their demise—some highlights according to Student Union Sports:

  • In 2013, Drake joined the Miami Heat's celebration after the team won the NBA Championship. The following year, the Heat lost to the Spurs and lost star-player, LeBron James.
  • Drake became friends with Johnny Manziel after Manziel won the Heisman trophy...need I say more? 
  • Drake has attended plenty of Serena Williams matches over the years, and when he showed up to the U.S. Open in 2015, she lost in the semi-finals despite being the favorite to win. 

Fans have even begged Drake not to cheer for their teams because the evidence against him is so strong. The Raptors may have finally gotten their title, but it's important to note that Drake was not in Oracle Arena for Game 6. He was a safe, safe distance away in Jurassic Park in Toronto, and the Raptors eked out a win in spite of him.

Every other team and athlete Drake has ever cheered for takes a backseat to the Raptors—his hometown team. If there was ever a team to be perpetually affected by the Drake Curse, it would be them. 

Drake is no different from other Raptors fan vying for a championship title, and his dreams have finally been realized. If the Raptors can win their first-ever title with Drake cheering for them with all his might, the curse is officially over.

Let's not forget the time when Drake was a Warriors fan. How can a curse possibly operate when two cursed teams face each other? Someone has to win. This time, the Drake Curse chose the Warriors as its latest victim.

The Raptors' win was no Drake-Curse short-circuit; this team worked incredibly hard for the title. Game 6 of the finals had 14 lead changes in the first half alone. Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam, Kawhi Leonard, and Fred VanVleet all put over 20 points on the board. The team operated efficiently on offensive and stayed competitive on defense, and it was enough to put away the defending champs. The Raptors earned this title not in spite of Drake, but with his and the entire fanbase's support.
