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. Well the Raptors analyst weren’t familiar with Wale or his music but decided to discuss him on air. One of the commentators made the comment that Wale was no Drake.
Check the video:
Word got back to Wale about that comment and he didn’t take to kindly to the comparison so he sent a Tweet.

Then he headed up to the booth. Yikes. Fortunately following the game, Rudy Gay tried to clear up any confusion with his own Tweet.
Me and @wale was just joking y’all. Thats my boy right there.

Last night during Toronto's 96-88 win over the Wizards in D.C, Raptors announcer Matt Devlin caused a bit of unnecessary drama. After Toronto's Rudy Gay made a three-pointer, he makes a call-me gesture to one of the fans. The fan, it turned out, was rapper Wale. Devlin assumes that Wale is heckling Gay, and says so, but it doesn't look like that to me AT ALL. Take...

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. The D.C. native was sitting court side watching the Wizards take on the Toronto Raptors, when recently acquired forward Rudy Gay motioned to Wale “bro, call me, maybe?”. Whatever the exchange, it seemed...

The Toronto Raptors came into Washington last night and beat the Wizards 96-88. The most interesting dual was going on between rapper Wale, and Raptors play-by-play man Matt Devlin. Devlin saw Wale sitting court side talking trash to Raptors player Rudy Gay, who happen to be friends. Devlin clearly was not aware of this, and decided to take some shots at the rapper he had never...

I was able to chat with Mike Conley about the impact Tayshaun Prince has had on the team, how tough it is to lose a player like Rudy Gay and what it's like integrating new faces during the season.
On a scale of one to Lil-Wayne-claiming-to-have-humped-Chris-Bosh's-wife, this particular hip-hop/national basketball association beef rates at about a two. The Toronto Raptors played the Washington Wizards last night, and D.C. rapper Wale was sitting courtside. After watching Raptors forward Rudy Gay hit a three-pointer and aggressively make a "call me" gesture towards...
