If Duke stole Drake…

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.

      Might be a little bit soft, but he’s a hardcore Cal & Cat fan baby! Love it when he reps that UK gear!

    Stop it… Drake is not a UK fan. He’s a publicity fan. Would a UK fan wear a UConn shirt the day after they beat us for the national title?

      He’s one of the worst human beings ever.

      Yeah you’re right FlatTops, he’s almost in the same category as Hitler

      I feel like I remember that being part of a bet . . . That unfortunately he lost

      Lol Half the people on this site are ready fire Cal after a two game losing streak. KSR is the last place where people should be calling someone a fair weather fan in the comments.

      Besides that shirt he had on was a James Young logo shirt. (We’ve been over this)

      Exactly! They’ve copied everything else Cal has done and now this. Cal has helped dUKe more than anyone in that program.

    Why would he want to play a high school gym filled with nerds?

    Dude got Nike to make a special “Calipari Pack” Air Jordan signature shoe.

    You can’t say he’s not a real fan just because he lost a UCONN bet and admires other amature athletes.

    Remember he can’t comment on UK players because it’s a violation. The NCAA sent him letters twice so he’s just being careful.

      Don’t you know he’s not a real fan unless he calls into KSR after the game to ask why Jon Hood and Brandon Stockton don’t play more?

    They wanted him that bad they should have came to UK. Coach K has proved the last two years he cant manage to one and dones like he thought. Two straight years they were supposed to be the super team and next year, they will be very young.

    Drake has helped get Kentucky alot of publicity with up and coming recruits and plenty of past recruits, he’s a force and anybody saying anything negative about him and his impact on our program is out of touch with reality.

    Drake does nothing for me. So I’ve got two words on this, “so what”.

    Is it possible Zion could flip his commitment since capel left?

      Present him with an honorary award of some kind.

    IF he does then they need to cut him off from appearances at BBM along with any other special treatments.
