The move comes after the rapper weaponized the "Drake curse" against the Philadelphia 76ers by wearing a pair of Sixers shorts for game seven of the Eastern Conference playoff semifinals, allowing the Toronto Raptors to overcome their opponents 92-90.

According to a report The Star published Tuesday night (May 21), Drizzy's favorite National Basketball Association team hooked him up with a custom-made, diamond-encrusted sports jacket.

That's a $769,000 diamond encrusted jacket from Toronto outlet Garrison Bespoke, according to the Toronto Star.

Trendon Watford commits to LSU over Alabama and others
LSU faded following Will Wade's suspension back in March, but once Wade was reinstated, the Tigers regained control. All three schools were involved early in the process, and Watford took multiple visits to each.

This is the fifth year the tailors have gifted the team's global ambassador with a custom piece to commemorate the season.

Along with the litany of awards for his music, a successful clothing line, and even a spot on one of Canadian television's most cherished institutions, he also famously gets the royal treatment with his courtside spot at Toronto Raptors home games.

"This is truly a one of one piece", said the jacket's designer Micheal Nguyen. Inside, the jacket features a City Edition Raptors jersey, which Drake helped design with OVO's colour scheme. "And the diamonds, of course". On the left lapel sits a 1.2-carat diamond pin. Drake was presented with the jacket at the Scotiabank Arena by Raptors president Masai Ujiri right before Game 4 began.
