Taylor Swift is not good luck for some NBA teams.
Could Taylor Swift be jinxing NBA teams? A peculiar idea has surfaced online, connecting the results of the NBA playoffs and her ongoing Eras Tour.
The Conference Finals are currently underway in both the Eastern and Western Conferences, and it seems that the winners will have an easy journey to the NBA Finals with two potential sweeps on the horizon. With the Miami Heat leading the Boston Celtics and the Denver Nuggets ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers in the series, a strange theory is gaining momentum.
Fans have been speculating that Swift’s tour is correspondingly following the progress of a team’s defeat. Every city the pop star performs in seems to be losing their NBA team. For example, after Swift had three gigs at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Atlanta Hawks lost to the Celtics in the first round.
In Philadelphia, where she had her last show, the Celtics won in Game Seven against the Philadelphia 76ers. As she prepares to perform in Los Angeles and Denver, basketball enthusiasts are wondering if the “Swift curse” will continue to affect the teams’ outcomes.
Every city Taylor Swift plays in promptly has its NBA team get eliminated from the playoffs ?

There hasn’t been a successful comeback from a 3-0 series deficit so far, and the Lakers have already been swept by the Nuggets. With all eyes on the Celtics, we’ll have to wait and see if they can overcome the curse and take home the win.
