It seems these days the NBA is more entertaining off the court than on. During last night's game between the visiting Toronto Raptors and the Wizards the real face-off was between Washington D.C. rapper Wale and Raptors announcer Matt Devlin , who after noticing Wale (sitting courtside) trading words with Raptor Rudy Gay , began to belittle the MMG member on the air, referring to him as a "local rapper," and inadvertently kept pronouncing his name as "Wall-A," with a slight pause before and extra emphasis on the "A." What's funny (or sad... or sadly funny) is that this is probably the best dis we've heard in hip-hop circles in a while. The final kick in the nuts with a size 14 Nike? When Devlin said, "And I'm sure somebody on Twitter can tell me exactly if they have ever heard of Wall-A. He's not Drake, that's for sure." OMMG!
But that wasn't the end of it. Supposedly Wale — who as it turns out is actually buddies with Rudy Gay and wasn't talking trash to him like previously thought — tweeted at his new nemesis Devlin: "Watch your mouth." Evidently, it didn't stop there, though, as the heated, locally-known rap singer paid a visit to the Raptors' broadcast section [NOTE: PLEASE SEE COMMENT BELOW], as you'll see in the second video.
