Drake will be hosting this year’s ESPY Awards (ESPN’s version of celebrating great moments in sports and athletes for the year) this Wednesday, and recently took part in a conference call to speak on the upcoming show with the media. During the call, Complex’s Frazier Tharpe asked Drake if he’s now a Cleveland Cavaliers fan; this is because Drake’s close friend and NBA player Lebron James has returned to that team. Being that the Toronto rapper has become the boom for many jokes concerning flip-flop fans, he had this to say in response:

Well, first of all, I’d like to say that despite what everyone on the Internet thinks, I do not team jump. 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.

He also spoke on Skylar Diggins, who — in addition to himself — has been crushed on by much of the Young Monday roster (this includes boss Lil Wayne) as well as the rest of the male Rap community:

I’ve never met Skylar, but I’m sure it’ll be extremely awkward if she does show up. She probably won’t though…her boyfriend will probably have her tied down to a chair that night.

The ESPYs premieres on ESPN 16th July, 8PM EST.
