Toronto rapper Drake has been making his presence known courtside during the Raptors’ historic NBA playoffs run, so many people might be wondering why he was rocking a “ Curry ” jersey for Thursday night’ s Game 1 of the Finals . Drake ’ s choice of game wear was actually a not-so-subtle reminder

Drake wore a Curry jersey to Game 1 of the NBA Finals — but it wasn’t Steph’s © Rick Madonik/Toronto Star Drake wore Dell Curry’s jersey at Game 1 Thursday night. Dell was a member of the Raptors, and Drake wore his purple-and-black No. 30 jersey as he watched from his courtside seat.

There was no mistaking the name on the back of Drake’s jersey at Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

“Curry,” it read. But it wasn’t Steph’s.

The rapper and self-appointed heckler for the Toronto Raptors arrived to the game against the Golden State Warriors sporting the vintage, autographed Raptors jersey of Dell Curry, the former shooting guard and father to Steph Curry.

Curry had a three-season run on the team between 1999-2002, and for anyone who forgot those moments in Raptors history — Drake made sure to remind them.

Curry averaged 6.7 points in 15.7 minutes while playing for Toronto, shooting 39.0 per cent from the 3-point range.

He made it to Thursday’s game to cheer on Steph, and just so happened to be seated a few rows behind Drake, his jersey staring back at him for the better part of the game.

The source of the jersey appears to be a vintage clothing brand called Saved, based out of Brooklyn.

Evan Flores, the store’s owner, wrote on Facebook that he had travelled to Toronto to deliver the goods.

“Dropped it off to @champagnepapi and the rest is history from here,” he wrote in a public Facebook post.

The poignant fashion statement unearthed some other relevant details about Drake, however. Notably, the rapper was covering his left bicep with an armband, where he has tattoos of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant’s jersey numbers.

It’s unclear if Steph noticed or cared, but the two were spotted bickering at the end of the game, a resounding 118-109 victory for the Raptors.
