Drake gifted the custom made ‘Farewell Kobe’ All-Star jacket to Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
Drake wore the jacket to Kobe Bryant’s last NBA All-Star Game. It quickly went viral. Curry played for the Western Conference in the game.
Drake joined the Toronto Raptors broadcast on Friday and he confirmed Curry is now the proud owner of the jacket. The jacket was made in collaboration with OVO and Jordan Brand, according to the 6 God.

Curry asked Bryant to sign his shoes after the game so the piece was likely very important to him.
Drake posted a photo of him and Curry on Instagram with the caption:
“Lucky to have this guy in my family. And of course he hits a half court shot to end it all…All Star Weekend 2016 Lucky to have this guy in my family. And of course he hits a half court shot to end it all…All Star Weekend 2016.”
It’s good to have Drake as family.
The jacket makes a guest appearance in the iconic photo of Bryant and LeBron James from the game.
