Things got weird in DC.
Toronto announcer Matt Devlin then took it upon himself to take a few playful jabs at Wale, calling him exactly that (a "local rapper"), mispronouncing his name and unfavorably comparing him to Drake (video via Beyond the Buzzer):
Wale got wind of this, was not pleased, and immediately got to menacing Devlin on Twitter (the most menacing way to menace):

He even got up and accosted the booth (photo via @jeskeets):
It all ended with a shoutout to the T dot and a suggestion that the conversation with Gay wasn't earnestly hostile, though, so I guess we're good. Gay finished with 24 points in Toronto's win over the Wizards, by the way.
Me and @wale was just joking y'all. Thats my boy right there.— Rudy Gay (@rudygay22) February 20, 2013
