For Thursday night’s regional semifinal against the Etiwanda Eagles, multiplatinum rapper Drake made his second appearance in just as many weeks and brought award-winning actor Michael B. Jordan along with him. Sounds like a pretty solid fan base for a high school team, to put it lightly.
The Trailblazers fell to the Eagles, 82-76. Bronny James’ first points of the game came in the last two minutes as he sank a 3-pointer to shrink Etiwanda’s lead to single digits.
His teammate and UCLA basketball commit Amari Bailey led the team with 37 points. Bailey’s memorable dunk against the Centennial Huskies brought LeBron and Drake to their feet last week.
Amari Bailey drops the hammer with his left hand, which impresses LeBron James and Drake.
It also might be worth mentioning that Sierra Canyon is 0-2 this season when Drake is in attendance. Perhaps the Drake curse might be in full form once again.
