Raptors Rudy Gay and Wale have known each other for a minute. So naturally when Gay’s Raptors faced off against his hometown Wizards, Wale was courtside and the two engaged in a little friendly trash talk.

As if going to the old school score board wasn’t embarrassing enough for the Wizards on Tuesday night, their No. 1 fan, rapper Wale, didn’t have such a good night either.
