Video: Drake calls Wizards’ Kelly Oubre a bum

Drake, Kelly Oubre Jr.

Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre is a lot of things, but for Toronto Raptors celebrity fan Drake, he is nothing more than a bum. How do we know this? Well, Drake called Oubre just that on Tuesday, when he was caught by cameras talking trash to Oubre during Game 2 of the first-round series between the Wizards and the Raptors.

Unfortunately for Oubre, he was not able to make Drake eat his own words, as the Wizards proceeded to lose their second game of the series, 130-109. Oubre scored 14 points on 6-for-11 shooting from the field in 30 minutes of action, so Drake calling the former Kansas Jayhawk a bum did not accurately paint the importance of Oubre to the Wizards in Game 2.

In any case, the Raptors are now ahead 2-0 in the series, thanks in large part to the monster effort of DeMar DeRozan, who bounced back from a subpar performance in Game 1 by erupting for 37 points on 24-for-23 shooting on Tuesday. Kyle Lowry, meanwhile, is yet to break out of a slump in these playoffs having scored just 13 points in Game 2. He only had 11 in Game 1. If he were a Wizards fan, Drake would probably have called Lowry a bum himself.

Game 3 of the series is scheduled to be played at Capital One Arena in Washington this Friday.

The Raptors are 5-1 in their last six trips to Washington, while the Wizards are 3-1 in their last four at home.
