WILL WE SEE AUBREY IN THE BAY? (UPDATE)

We’re still hopeful Drake will show up (Spike Lee-style) in Oakland for Game 4 of the NBA Finals, now that a courtside seat has opened up, the result of a classless move by a now-banned Warriors minority owner, who got a scolding from LeBron to boot. The wife of another minority owner drew the wrath of the Beyhive, apparently for having the nerve to reach across the megastar as she passed Jay-Z a lime for his cocktail. You can’t make this shit up.

But most agree he’s likely to stay in the comfort of the “6.” Two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant’s snipe from Sunday indicates he expects Drake in the Bay at some point. We’re more interested to see whether the Dubs can overcome the injury bug they’d previously avoided during their historic five-year run.

Golden State fired some shots at Drake in the warm-up to Game 3 Wednesday by playing the Pusha T diss track, “The Story of Adidon”. Unfortunately, Drake wasn’t courtside, so there was no way to get a reaction shot.

Are you going to the game tonight? We’re not either, so join us as we look over some intriguing Drizzy-specific prop bets:

Will the 6 God have either his Steph Curry or his Durant tattoo removed? (Unlikely.)

Will there be an on-court physical altercation between the devoted Raptors cheerleader and a Warriors player? (More unlikely.)

Will yet another Dubs minority owner get into a fracas with a Toronto player? (No way in hell.)

And in case you were wondering, down 2-1 in the series, the two-time defending champs are favorites (-4.5) in tonight’s Game 4. So is the Drake curse an actual thing?
