With LeBron James leaving the Miami Heat and returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers fans, there have been a lot of jokes about bandwagon fans following James and abandoning the Heat to become Cavs fans.
It even led to Complex asking Drake if he will be a Cavs fan now and he gave the most “bandwagon fan” explanation possible
“Well, first of all, I’d like to say that despite what everyone on the Internet thinks, I do not team jump,” Drake told Complex’s Frazier Tharpe. “In the past I’ve always supported the player and not the institution—unless we’re talking about the Kentucky Wildcats and the Toronto Raptors; I will never stray from them. But whether it comes to soccer or football or basketball, I have a lot of friends that play for a lot of teams. I’m not team jumping. I’m a supportive friend.”
“Of course, I’m gonna go watch games in Cleveland. If not for LeBron—who I said is a brother to me, we’ve got three kids from Toronto on one team, plus Manziel who is part of our family and our brother. I definitely have to look into some real estate in Cleveland and spend some months of the year out there. Like I said, my teams will always forever be who they are but I will support the group who has shifted to Cleveland.”
Drake is just the tip of the iceberg and many fans around the country are jumping ship. One person on Vine captured the trend perfectly.
