Now that’s a tough loss! Stephen Curry wasn’t the only one to lose because of LeBron James in Game 7 of the NBA Finals — Drake is apparently out $60,000 after losing a bet to French Montana! Get the details right here!
LeBron James cost Drake some major bucks by beating the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals! Rapper French Montana took to Snapchat to reveal the bet he and Drake, 29, had going for the series, and it wasn’t a cheap one. In fact, the Drake apparently lost $60,000 for not “believing in LeBron”!
“Shout-out to my brother Drizzy Drake for that 60 bands, ‘cuz you ain’t believe in LeBron,” French declared in a selfie Snap vid. Although it’s unclear if French is actually going to make his buddy pay him those “60 bands,” that’s still a pretty crazy amount to even joke about — especially when it’s because of LeBron!
Considering LeBron was one of the main reasons that Drake’s Toronto Raptors lost in the conference finals, it’s understandable that Drake would want to bet against him in the Finals. But unfortunately for Drake, LeBron brought his A-game to the Finals, putting up an impressive 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in Game 7 alone. He even played so well that he was named the series MVP!
Then again, even if it is a bummer that Drake lost all that money, let’s be honest…it’s not going to put him out too bad. He did just recently land on Forbes’ list of music’s richest rappers, estimated to be worth about $60 million. No wonder he was willing to put down so much money against LeBron!
Whether LeBron knew that Drake and French had this bet going, he certainly celebrated his team’s huge win over the Golden State Warriors in emotional fashion. He couldn’t help crying tears of joy over their history-making comeback (they’re the first team to win it all after being down 3-1 in the series), and videos captured LeBron celebrating with his wife Savannah as well as his adorable daughter, Zhuri. And after the way Drake trolled LeBron when the Cavs played the Raptors, when LeBron finds out that Drake lost $60K because of him, surely that victory will taste even sweeter!
