With the Drake curse being as ubiquitous as it has become across the sports landscape, the city of Milwaukee is going to insane lengths to avoid jinxing the Bucks against the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference finals.

KISS FM, a popular station in Milwaukee, isn't playing ANY Drake songs for the entire series.

Milwaukee is not trying to mess with Drake's bad mojo. And for good reason.

Even Raptors guard Danny Green wanted nothing to do with Drake when he couldn't miss in Game 5.

The Drake curse is an even more powerful weapon now that the music star is fully aware of the damage he can cause. He put his trademark hex on the Sixers by sporting Philadelphia shorts during the Raptors' -- well, Kawhi's -- miraculous Game 7 win.

If Drake was really a big Raptors fan, he'd show up to Game 3 draped in Bucks green and cream in order to completely neutralize Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee. The fate of this series could rest not in the hands of Nick Nurse or Mike Budenholzer, but Drake himself.
