It’s no surprise that singer/songwriter Drake is a bit of a frontrunner. There aren’t many natural Alabama football, Conor McGregor, Golden State Warriors, Kentucky basketball, LeBron James and Toronto Raptors fans out there.
The NBA Finals have forced Drake to finally pick a lane. While he’s going with his beloved Raptors, it’s tough to show up as the team’s No. 1 fan with his Warriors tattoos on display.
Yes, Drake has Warriors tattoos. On his left arm, he has the number 30 with the word “gifted” written under it. That’s for Stephen Curry. Next to that, he has a number 35 with the word “snipe” under it for Kevin Durant.
When it came time to root for the Raptors in the Finals, Drake had to come up with a creative solution to make sure those tattoos were covered up. He opted for an arm band.

Given Drake’s past history, it will be interesting to see whether that arm band makes an appearance at every game of the Finals, particularly if the Warriors happen to take a lead in the series.
You might think Drake would never abandon the Raptors, but Drake’s decisions have always been curious.
