The Internet had fans (and haters) crying Michael Jordan tears over Duke’s fifth NCAA championship win. The Blue Devils—led by the G.O.A.T. Coach K, Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones and Grayson Allen—beat the Wisconsin Badgers, 68 to 63, on Monday night (April 6), giving their opponents more blues than their uniform.
The other loser of the night: Drake. After forking over $6,000 to The Game over a bet in favor of Kentucky during their Final Four matchup against Wisconsin (Wildcats lost), Drizzy was the subject of “bandwagon banter” for many Duke diehards.
Other timelines paid homage to ‘Pac with past images of the late rapper in a Duke uniform. See some of the rap-inspired reactions from the Internet—along with some real-life rapper reactions and at least one MJ crying face— below.
