Here’s What Drake Went Through to Get That Dell Curry Jersey.
Drake really wanted to be able to troll Steph Curry during Game 1 of the 2019 NBA Finals, so he had his stylist go on an expedition to get him a Dell Curry jersey to rock at the game.
“On Tuesday, the day before the Raptors’ Game 1 win, Drake’s stylist placed a call to a man named Al Martiniello, who owns a vintage sports clothing shop in Brooklyn, according to The Action Network’s Darren Rovell,” says NBC Sports. “Drake’s stylist wanted to know if Martiniello had seen a Dell Curry Raptors jersey. While he hadn’t, he had a friend, Evan Flores, who had sourced the buying of one such jersey.”
While the owner of the jersey initially didn’t want to part with it, he was eventually convinced to give it up for a good price. At that point, there was no way the jersey would make it to Drake on time if they shipped it, so Martiniello and Flores made a 10-hour drive to go hand it off themselves.
Only when you’re Drake.
