The T-Wolves are steering clear of the Drake curse.
It's well documented that if Drake hops on your team's bandwagon, they're probably going to lose. The most recent example of this is when Drake wore the merch of the Alabama Crimson Tide before their National Championship game on Monday night. In true "Drake-Curse" form, Alabama lost to the Clemson Tigers 44-16 in a 28-point blowout. This even prompted ex-Bama player Eryk Anders to give Drake a lifetime ban from wearing their gear.
This time around it's the Minnesota Timberwolves who are taking preventative measure against the "Drake Curse." Drake hasn't exactly shown his support for the Timberwolves in the past, but recently, Andrew Wiggins was asked to pick the music for a recent T-Wolves practice and his playlist consisted only of his Canadian counterpart.
Wiggins' musical taste prompted the T-Wolves Twitter account to issue a warning.
"we love you,
@Drake... but please refrain from wearing any Wolves gear in public. we don’t need that curse," the Timberwolves wrote.
It makes sense the T-Wolves wouldn't want any bad juju, the team is on a three-game winning streak and are looking to extend it to four when they take on the Dallas Mavericks tonight.
