Todd Gurley won't save Drake's number to avoid curse

Todd Gurley will hang with Drake whenever the rapper comes to Los Angeles.

Just don't expect Gurley to call him on his cell phone.

Gurley told Uninterrupted that he won't save Drake's contact information to his own phone -- for fear of sparking his own 'Drake Curse.'

Pro athletes like Gurley put the "super" in superstitious. Still, there's a clear connection between Drake's sports fandom and poor athletic performance.

You can't blame Gurley for seeing a correlation between the four-time Grammy winner and these cursed athletes:

Serena Williams, who lost to 300-1 underdog Roberta Vinci at the 2015 U.S. Open with one Aubrey Graham in attendance.

Johnny Manziel, the topic of a 2014 Drake song titled "Draft Day." Manziel was released by the Browns two years later.

The Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team that has not won a title since 2012 -- the year Drake started supporting them.

The Golden State Warriors, whose 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals evaporated after an infamous bet with fellow rapper French Montana.

The Alabama Crimson Tide football team that received this video from Drake and lost the 2019 National Championship Game to Clemson.

The good news for Drake? The 2019 Toronto Raptors are one win away from ending his curse -- and opening Gurley's contacts back up entirely.

Until then, Gurley's not risking anything.
