There will be no escaping Drake during the NBA Finals and, honestly, we’re not going to try. The superfan, who is perilously close to rooting for a team that actually wins something, showed up to Game 1 tonight wearing a Dell Curry Toronto Raptors jersey.
Stephen’s dad played for the franchise from 1999-2002.
We desperately need a whole team of psychologists to get into the gamesmanship and deeper father issues at play here. It must be profoundly confusing for a 31-year-old to see his friend, a 32-year-old wearing his dad’s number knowing it’s meant as some weird type of warfare.
Just a lot going on there.
