Meek Mill lost $200,000 thanks to betting on Warriors
Rap artist Meek Mill isn’t fazed despite the fact that he apparently lost $200,000 on an NBA Finals bet.
That’s right. Meek threw down a giant bag of cash on the Warriors in this year’s NBA Finals. And though Golden State was favored to win, it was the Toronto Raptors who came away with their first championship in franchise history. As a result, Mill had to pay up.
In a clip posted to Twitter shortly after Toronto’s victory in Game 6, a friend of Meek’s revealed the amount that he had bet on the Finals:

In May, Meek challenged “rich guys in Toronto” to put money on the Finals matchup between the Raptors and Warriors:
I’m betting whatever on the series if any of y’all rich guys from Toronto believe in y’all team against the warriors!!!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

The Warriors were looking for an elusive three-peat, but the injury bug had other plans. Kevin Durant went down with a calf strain in the Western Conference Semifinals, which forced him to the sidelines until Game 5 of the Finals, when he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.
Durant wasn’t the only Warriors player to suffer an injury down the stretch, however. Kevon Looney sustained a small fracture around his collarbone in Game 2, and Klay Thompson tore his ACL in Game 6.
Now, with the offseason on the horizon, the Warriors will be forced to make a decision. Will they look to keep their roster intact, or is it truly “the end of a dynasty?” as some experts have said.
