Here’s a very brief recap of what transpired tonight during the Raptors telecast as Toronto visited the Washington Wizards:
Rudy Gay scores and Wale (rapper from Washington, D.C.) heckles Gay.
Gay responds to Wale.
Raptors play-by-play guy (Matt Devlin and Leo Rautins) take offense to Wale heckling Gay.
Raptors play-by-play guy says he doesn’t know who Wale is. “He isn’t Drake” (who is from Toronto):
Wale learns of this and tweets the following to Devlin: “Watch ur mouth”. The tweet was later deleted.
Apparently, Wale then goes to confront said play-by-play guys in person.
Rudy Gay clears the air on Twitter after the game:
