Drake's Troll Ruined Steph Curry's Plans to Wear His Dad's Old Jersey
Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry was poised to wear his father's old Raptors jersey in Toronto to honour his dad Dell, until Drake entered the mix at the NBA Finals.
Dell Curry said the Toronto rapper's decision to seemingly troll Steph by wearing his dad's old Raptors uniform in Game 1 at Scotiabank Arena nixed the Warriors guard's idea.
"I'll give you guys the inside story there. Before I flew to Toronto, Steph called me and said 'Hey pops, pack me one of your old Toronto jerseys,'" Dell Curry said on a conference call to promote the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament on Tuesday.
"That was the exact same jersey I packed for him, but (Steph was going to wear it prior to the) second game (of the NBA Finals in Toronto). Then Drake shows up in it so that ruined that.''
Dell Curry chuckled when asked about the Raptors' global ambassador showing up in the autographed jersey.
"It was all fun. You know all about the trolling and everything," Curry said. "He went to great depth to get that jersey, so it's probably a little bit of respect. I think more than that, it fired up the Warriors even more to try to steal a game there in Toronto and I think they did just that"
