While talking to reporters after the Toronto Raptors knocked out the Orlando Magic from the NBA playoffs, Drake jokingly referred to the idea that any team he roots for is doomed to fail.
It’s referred to as ‘The Drake Curse’
Drake to the media on his way out of the building. “You want me to talk about the curse or you guys good?”

The curse is supposedly activated when Drake either snaps a photo with a player from a given team, or is spotted wearing their gear.
The Raptors winning their first round series, which they were supposed to easily do, does not mean the curse has been lifted.
If they win a championship, then yes, the curse is no more.
Unfortunately, the Toronto Maple Leafs lost Game 7 of their first-round series to the Boston Bruins on the same night, and some decided to give Drake some heat online.
This comes after Drake cheered them on in Game 4 when the Maple Leafs missed an opportunity to seize a commanding 3-1 advantage.
So there’s that.
