With the Washington Wizards and the Toronto Raptors locked into a possible, maybe, could-it-be first round matchup in the playoffs, I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that someone started in with the trash talk.
That said, it is surprising to learn that the offending party is none other than former Wizard, Gilbert Arenas. Check out what he got into on his Instagram:
Im ready.....the #DMV is ready....toronto yall dont want these problems...CANADA im sorry but ur players still dont know ur national anthem songz...unless #drake put that in a song...yall just wasting 5 mins of warmup time...im just saying we have older players..and that #bengay runs out by time the game start....#BULLS u better not drop that game tomorrow....or we frying up some bologna and yes were gonna keep the ring on it..hahahaha #trashtalking101 i need my tickets front row #MsJones
Does this stuff make sense? I'm not really going to attempt to unpack it. I'll leave that to you guys. Still, you've got to hand it to Arenas. With both the Wizards and the Raptors easing into the playoffs like an old man getting into a bath, he's there ready to heat things up, hibachi-style.
No word at press time from any of Wale's people on what HE thinks about all this.
We'll keep you informed.
