Is Spurs star Wembanyama at risk of the Drake Curse?

Victor Wembanyama’s dominance in San Antonio has caught the attention of Canadian music sensation Drake.

Wembanyama, the 19-year-old French player drafted first overall by the Spurs in the NBA, is preparing for his debut game on Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks at 8:30 p.m.

Wembanyama has rapidly gained global fame, as seen by his recent Instagram post featuring a photo with Drake (real name Aubrey Graham).

“Random dump before the serious stuff begins,” Wembanyama captioned the post.

This post might worry superstitious and paranoid Spurs fans due to the infamous “Drake Curse” meme.

Drake has been known to bring bad luck to athletes he associates with. For example, when he accompanied MMA fighter Conor McGregor to a weigh-in, McGregor ended up losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The curse extends beyond sports and countries, as seen when Drake took a picture with Argentinian soccer player Sergio Agüero before his team, Manchester City, lost to Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League quarterfinals.

In 2019, Italian soccer side AS Roma jokingly banned their players from taking photos with Drake.

This history of bad luck has some Spurs fans concerned that Wembanyama might fall victim to the Drake Curse.

“The Drake Curse better not occur on you, please don’t get injured this season,” commented one Instagram user.

Other commenters advised Wembanyama to stay away from Drake, fearing that he might bring bad luck to the entire Spurs team.

Drake recently shared the news that he purchased a home in the Houston area, raising the possibility of him attending Spurs games this season.
