The Toronto Raptors had lost 10 Game Ones entering this year's postseason. Also, the Washington Wizards had far more talent than the usual No. 8 seed. Accordingly, many fans thought the Raptors could struggle out of the gates in this year's playoffs.

That has not been the case. Tuesday night, the Raps took a 2-0 series lead with a 130-119 win behind 37 points from DeMar DeRozan, who took over down the stretch.

In the fourth quarter, cameras captured Raptors super fan Drake, who was sitting courtside, calling Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. a "bum."

Naturally, NBA fans on Twitter loved it. Hilarious. What did Oubre think, though?

He said Drake is "my guy," so it appears there's no hate on his end.

Kelly Oubre Jr's response to Drake calling him a bum.

"That's my guy though," Oubre said. "I see him in the summer time…we pretty much run the streets of LA together, on the A-list tip, not in the hood the end of the day, he is a great rapper, man, I listen to him in my headphones and I have no beef with him. I just think that it's pretty cool that my name is mentioned in the same conversation as his."

Oubre has averaged 11.8 points and 4.5 rebounds in 27.5 minutes per game this season. The Hawks selected the 22-year-old No. 15 overall in the 2015 draft, but traded him on draft night to the Wizards.
