The Wizards, despite being the slight underdogs as the No. 5 seed, and even following a second-half slide that saw them go 13-15 after the All-Star break, easily swept the Raptors with a 125-94 win in Game 4 at the Verizon Center on Sunday.
This time, Paul Pierce didn’t quote The World as Will and Representation scribe, Arthur Schopenhauer — though he probably has some thoughts on the dissatisfied collective will the Polish philosopher writes extensively about.
Rob Stark is not amused.
But that wasn’t all. Pierce also tweeted the above about Drake, the Raptors’ global ambassador, and the person who gave Pierce some DAP earlier in the series, much to the chagrin of a Canadian politician.
Pierce wasn’t the only one going after Drake after the Raptors were again knocked out in the first round, but a cursory search of Twitter reveals a lot of brand integration (leave our memes alone) and some less-than-amusing attempts at Drake photoshops with Madonna.
Adding a much more amusing takedown of Drake was Wale, the DC emcee who waited almost six months to troll Drake on Twitter and Instagram.
Drake posted a picture of the scoreboard to his Instagram six months ago during one of the four victories Toronto had over Washington in the regular season. He specifically calls out Wale, the unofficial Wizards ambassador.
Wale tweeted that same picture last night, hashtagging Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same” album:
Then he posted the scoreboard after yesterday’s win:
Also, it seems he’s carrying on the Rasheed Wallace NBA Championship Belt tradition even though the Wizards have only just won their second consecutive first-round series; although, the broom is still solid trolling:
Drake will roll with the punches, since he’s Drake, and dealing with his haters is almost a full-time job at this point. The Wizards will face the winner of the Hawks and Nets series in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
