The 7 Athletes Drake's Oddly Obsessed With

Drake could very well be the rapper of our generation. And while Kanye and Kendrick would deem such a statement extremely disputable, what’s indisputable is that Drizzy’s the preeminent jersey chaser of our generation. Yes, more so than all the Jardashian’s and Kenner’s combined. So without further ado, the seven athletes Drake’s invited to at least one post-concert orgy…

No. 7: DeMarcus Cousins


The one that started it all. Drake’s admiration for DeMarcus Cousins put the entire jersey chasing community on watch. The way Drake looks at Boogie in this post game interview is the world’s only real evidence of true love…

No. 6: John Calipari


Champagne Papi’s love for Coach Cal has poured out onto the entire Kentucky basketball program like a bottle of perfectly chilled Veuve, making him it’s most recognizable supporter. Just look at that picture. What do you see? Pure, unadulterated love…

No. 5: LeBron James

As soon as Drake became a major player in chasing players, he knew in order to be the best, he had to cuddle up to the best. Look at him in that picture — he looks like a third grader meeting LeBron James, not a multi-platinum rapper. DeMar DeRozan’s feelings are so hurt right now…

No. 4: Steph Curry


“I been Steph Curry with the shot
Been cookin’ with the sauce, chef, curry with the pot, boy
360 with the wrist, boy”

Just look at Ayesha Curry trying to keep Drake away from her man. I’d be worried too…

No. 3: Kobe Bryant


Drake: OMG, Kobe! You are too funny.

Kobe: I didn’t even make a joke.

Drake: It doesn’t matter. I’m gonna write a song about our friendship.

No. 2: Johnny Manziel


Drake was so committed to chasing Johnny Football, that he was willing to sacrifice anything. Even his own body. Because few things say “I Love You” more than matching tattoos. Like two undergrads in Cancun after their ninth Frogasm, Drake took on needle and ink to win over a guy who 12 months later is completely irrelevant in the sports world. Manziel’s still apparently BFF’s with Drake’s cousin or something…

No. 1: Odell Beckham Jr.


Once OBJ solidified himself as the NFL’s most exciting young player, the chase was on. Odell is Drake’s latest and greatest capture, and after chasing down the likes of Kobe, LeBron, and Curry, it was almost like Odell came to him. This past summer, Drake gave OBJ the keys to The Yolo Estate to “watch” while he was on his Summer Sixteen tour. It seems like after chasing jersey’s all these years, like all the great ones, he’s letting the jerseys chase him. A true master of the art.

Well done, Drake. Well done.

Honorable Mention: Everyone who’s ever played for the Toronto Raptors…
