Mike Scott is wearing your rival's hockey jersey, explained originally appeared on nbcsportswashington.com

Former Wizards forward Mike Scott loves an NHL jersey. It's a pretty well-known thing on the internet. But with the NHL Playoffs heating up, fans are getting really mad that Scott is wading into "The Drake Curse" waters.

And they're taking it personally.

But the reality of it all: the dude just really likes hockey jerseys. 

Scott told reporters that he owns approximately 170 (!!!) custom made NHL jerseys. The NBA star ditched the classic suit and now exclusively wears a hockey jersey as part of his pre-game regimen.

Scott even goes as far to paint them with his own creativity, adding funny catchphrases, made up words or song lyrics in place of a last name on the back.

So is your anger at Scott justified? Absolutely not.

And neither is referring to him as "worse than The Drake Curse" (as many Twitter users so graciously have). Because unlike Scott, bandwagoner Drake is actually cursed.

The Canadian-born music artist flew home after the Maple Leafs entered playoff territory. And what happened? The rapper brought bad luck to his own people, and Toronto fell 6-4 to the Boston Bruins.

But Scott is different: he isn't pledging his allegiance to any team or even being a bandwagon fan for that matter. This guy's version of a sweater collection just lays in NHL jerseys. And he doesn't care who knows it.
