John Wall can hope to hear a lot of Drake tracks when the Washington Wizards take the court against the Toronto Raptors in Game 5. However, until at that point, Wall will have his earbuds in blocking out any Drake music.
Speaking with reporters today, Wall revealed that he isn’t listening to any Drake songs right now, including “Nice For What,” because of all the trash talk that Drizzy was spewing the last time Washington was at the Air Canada Centre. That said, he’s still looking to seeing the Toronto native now that the series is tied.
“Yeah, you know I am. For sure,” Wall said when asked if he is looking forward to seeing Drake now that the Wizards have evened the series. “I told him to be here for Game 3. He told me he was going to be here. He didn’t show up. He told me we were getting swept. He said he had the broom for us.”
When asked if he can listen to Drake right now, Wall replied, “no.”
When a reporter mentioned that you can’t go anywhere without hearing “Nice For What,” Wall said he will have his headphones in as much as possible.
After falling behind 2-0 in the series, and listening to Drake talk shit from his court side seat, Wall and the Wizards returned to D.C. and picked up victories in Games 3 & 4 to even things at 2-2. The two squads will now head north of the border for a pivotal Game 5 on Wednesday night. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00pm ET, the game will air on NBA TV.
