Drake Blamed For Recent Toronto Raptors Loss

The Toronto Raptors were eliminated from playoff contention on Wednesday night. The loss was heartbreaking as the team couldn't find a rhythm from the free throw line. However, could there be other reasons to blame for the poor performance by the Raptors? For one radio curse, a certain curse could have returned involving a celebrity Raptors fan. The fan in question is one of the biggest musicians of his era. Has the Drake sports curse hit the Raptors franchise again?

On Thursday's edition of the D.A. Show, Pat Boyle seems to think Drake could be to blame for the loss in Toronto. Boyle believed the Toronto superfans' presence at the game could have canceled out DeMar DeRozan's daughter shrieking. DeRozan's daughter could be heard letting out a loud screech during each trip to the free-throw line. Her vocal performance immediately made Diar DeRozan a viral sensation. Whereas a Toronto superfan was nowhere in site“If you don’t have Drake, and if that doesn’t work, the niceties of offering her things to make her stop shrieking, you get physical. You get her out,” Boyle said.

Radio Host Calls For Drake's Toronto Raptors Fan Card

Generally, it has been a long-running joke that whatever side Drake chooses in an athletic endeavor will eventually lose. One of Drake's most notable fandoms is his passion for the University of Kentucky's college basketball team. Drake joined the team during the pre-season of one of their more memorable seasons. The Wildcats were on the verge of becoming history in 2015. Until the team lost their first game of the season in the Final Four. Drake was a huge supporter of the 38-1 Wildcats. Undeniably there is evidence behind the mythical curse.

The Toronto Raptors are now preparing for the off-season. Undoubtedly the potential Drake curse wasn't the only pain last night. But Patrick Beverley also threw salt into the wounds after the game. The Bulls star was heard telling the Raptors GM that his team was trash. It hasn't been an ideal 24 hours for the city of Toronto. However, the Raptors are not far removed from their own championship run. A moment the city of Toronto or Drake will never forget.
