Drake, a Canadian actor-musician who enjoys collegiate and professional sports, is not a bandwagon fans, guys.
So stop saying those mean things on social media because, as he told Complex recently, he doesn’t support teams, only people, like LeBron James who’s returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Theoretically, this excludes him from being a “bandwagoner.”
“Well, first of all, I’d like to say that despite what everyone on the Internet thinks, I do not team jump. In the past I’ve always supported the player and not the institution—unless we’re talking about the Kentucky Wildcats and the Toronto Raptors; I will never stray from them. But whether it comes to soccer or football or basketball, I have a lot of friends that play for a lot of teams. I’m not team jumping. I’m a supportive friend.”
After clearing that up, he was then asked about his potential presence in Cleveland this coming fall, considering several of his friends play there.
“Of course, I’m gonna go watch games in Cleveland. If not for LeBron—who I said is a BROTHER to me, we’ve got three kids from Toronto on one team, plus Manziel who is part of our family and our brother. I definitely have to look into some real estate in Cleveland and spend some months of the year out there. Like I said, my teams will always forever be who they are but I will support the group who has shifted to Cleveland.”
Convenient answer there, Aubrey. Very convenient. It should be noted that outside the Wildcats and Raptors, Drake has been more or less a “supportive friend,” if that means embarrassingly intimate photos paint him more as clingy than supportive. However, we’ll draw the line here and say that this is a luxury afforded Drake, being a celebrity, and we’ll continue to side-eye his awkward bro-hugs. For the rest of us plebians, please pick a team and stick with it.
Also, Drake, word is there’s some great space in The Flats for your months in Cleveland. Just don’t forget a coat.
