Drake is Kentucky’s most famous fan, but two new Duke Blue Devils are trying to steal him away from Big Blue Nation. Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett, two of Coach K’s prized signees for next season, told USA Today they are hoping to get Drake to Cameron Indoor next fall.
“We’re gonna try to get him there,” Williamson said. “Hopefully, he’ll come on out.”
Barrett added, “It’s something that me and Zion have talked about so we’re hoping it happens. Drake at Cameron would be insane.”
I think it’s very unlikely Drake would turn on Calipari by supporting his rival, but let’s play the “What If” game for a moment. If Duke stole Drake…
If Duke stole Drake… it would be because of Williamson and Barrett. Drake is Williamson’s biggest fan; he’s been spotted wearing Williamson’s high school jersey on numerous occasions, including in his most recent Instagram photo.
Drake also shares a connection with Barrett, the top overall player in the class. They both hail from Toronto — or “The 6,” as it’s known to cool people.
If Duke stole Drake… Duke students would be upset he’s not Cascada. The Cameron Crazies really love Cascada’s stupid “Everytime We Touch” song from over a decade ago. Many of them probably don’t even know who Drake is.
If Duke stole Drake… Drake would be stabbing Coach Cal in the back.
If Duke stole Drake… Drake would go down as the biggest bandwagon fan of all time. Many people have already given him that award, although I do think his allegiance to John Calipari and Big Blue Nation is very sincere.
If Duke stole Drake… Jeff Capel probably paid for him before he left town. That was Capel’s move to lure stars to Duke, allegedly, of course.
If Duke stole Drake… Drake could perform his hit song, “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” to the entire team after their second-round loss as the tournament favorite next March.
If Duke stole Drake… **** his bed and his mama, I’m not sorry.
If Duke stole Drake… Calipari may drive down to Durham and punch Coach K square in his big ass nose. Coach K has already stolen several pages from Calipari’s playbook, and bringing Drake to campus may be the tipping point.
But Drake would never do this.
No new friends. No Duke friends.
