In that game, Floyd was targeted seven times, catching three passes for 61 yards. It was his fourth-highest yardage total of the season. Floyd could add a downfield threat in the Patriots’ passing game. Much of what New England does through the air is underneath stuff, utilizing Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Along with Chris Hogan, who is averaging over 19 yards per catch, Floyd could give Tom Brady another threat to stretch the field, especially with big play tight end Rob Gronkowski lost for the season.

Drake curse Canadian star vindicated after Raptors NBA championship win

But one historic basketball game may have broken the curse.High-profile victims of the so-called “Drake curse” include Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whose team lost to Everton three days after meeting the Canadian rapper in London, and Paris Saint-Germain, who had their biggest loss in almost two decades after defender Layvin Kurzawa posed for a picture with him.Also, boxer Anthony Joshua was so confident before his fight with Andy Ruiz Jr that he posted a photo with Drake on Instagram with the caption “‘bout to break the curse” – only to subsequently lose to his little-known rival. … we have a small favour to ask.

What’s Macaulay Culkin got to do with it? Toronto Raptors Such is the extent of Drake’s reputation for bringing bad luck that AS Roma enforced a tongue-in-cheek ban on its players taking pictures with the star until the end of the season.But following the Toronto Raptors’ historic 114-110 win over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, which made them the first ever Canadian NBA champions, Drake’s cursed influence appears – for now at least – to be over.Following the game, an exultant Drake, a Raptors mega-fan who, as the official global ambassador of his hometown team, has been a court-side fixture throughout the finals, declared the curse null and void. Wearing a 2019 champions baseball cap he said: “They said I was a curse, now they cursing each other out.”As well as announcing that he would be releasing not one but two songs to celebrate the victory – Omertà and Money in the Grave (ft. Rick Ross), he took the opportunity to gloat to Warriors guard Klay Thompson.“Yo Klay! when you’re wakeboarding this summer in your Quicksilver shorts …when you see me, you better wave. Friendly, too,” he said.His erratic – and highly meme-able – court-side posturing and emotional outbursts during the playoffs have attracted almost as much attention as the players on court. Drake taunted opposing players, wore provocative clothing, gesticulated wildly and even gave Raptors’ coach Nick Nurse a quick shoulder rub.Drake described the Raptors’ win as “poetic”. And said: “We did this off of heart. We did this off of love. We willed this into existence.” Since you’re here… NBA finals Read more Golden State Warriors Share on Facebook Drake celebrates on stage in Jurassic Park in Toronto after the Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors 114-110.Photograph: Nathan Denette/AP Topics Share on WhatsApp Prior to the victory over the Golden State Warriors, many had fallen victim to the music star’s reputation for bringing bad luck This article is more than 1 month old Miranda Bryant Share on Twitter NBA news Share on Facebook Last modified on Fri 14 Jun 2019 16.31 EDT Share on Pinterest Reuse this content Share on Messenger ‘Drake curse’: Canadian star vindicated after Raptors’ NBA championship winlast_img read more
