Non-threatening Canadian rapper Drake is arguably the most highly visible and enthusiastic sports fan in the world right now. Drake has become such a courtside fixture at basketball games in recent years that when he misses a game, he probably gets dozens of texts from people concerned about his well-being.
Unlike other celebrity sports fans such as Jack Nicholson and Spike Lee, who limit themselves and their fandom to passionately supporting one team, in recent years Drake has become such a spectacle in the sports world because he doesn't feel encumbered by things like loyalty or tradition.
Drake is the quintessential bandwagon fan, not to mention an unabashed fanboy. He’s been a loyal fan of the Heat…since they signed LeBron James. He’s been a dedicated Kentucky basketball fan…since they started winning national championships. He’s been a passionate Raptors fan since late 2013.
Perhaps because he is one himself, what Drake really values is superstars. He never misses an All-Star game or an opportunity to schmooze, no matter how awkward or inappropriate it may be. And because the only thing he seems to value is his celebrity status, we (the public) never miss an opportunity to troll him.
Here are Drake's 30 worst sports fanboy moments.
