Someone really, really wants that piece of lint Drake pulled out of Stephen Curry‘s hair during Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
The rapper was filmed chatting with the Warriors star and was captured on camera pulling something out his hair. After the game ended, Drake posted a video of the interaction on Instagram and said he would sell the lint on the social media platform.
“Steph Curry hair lint for sale on my eBay right now!!!” he wrote, and began taking bids for the hair lint with the eBay username “DraymondShouldntWear23.”

A day later, bids reached as high as $86,000 before the original page listing the hair got taken down. Since then, a number of other pages claiming to be Drake selling Curry’s hair lint popped up and the bidding resumed.
At the time of publication, one of these pages had 181 bids with the highest bid at $100,000, even though it is unclear if the page even belongs to Drake.
In addition to pulling lint out of Curry’s hair, Drake also had encounters with Curry’s teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Late in the fourth quarter, Thompson committed an offensive foul and Drake did the “Hotline Bling” dance to taunt him. Thompson said earlier in the week that he would not be listening to “Hotline Bling” while he was in finals mode.
After the game ended, the Toronto rapper exchanged words with Draymond Green and appeared to yell “trash” at Green as the Warriors star walked away.
Drake will undoubtedly be at Game 2 on Sunday night.
