First this, from rapper The Game last Wednesday:
So #MoneyGang plays #LAUNFD this Sunday in #TheDrew at 12:15pm & @baron_davis just called me & told me he wanna put 50k on it…. BET N—A
Just to clarify through the very high hashtag to words ratio, Baron Davis runs a Drew League team called LAUNFD and The Game runs another one called Money Gang, so they agreed to bet $50,000 on the outcome of a game betwixt the two, a game that took place yesterday. (Assuming this bet was actually happening, which I am, since no one wants to back out on such a public wager.)
Which makes this tweet, courtesy of the Drew League’s official account, quite relevant:
Final: Money Gang defeats LAUNFD 92-90. @KDTrey5 misses the game winning three-pointer. #TheDrew
So basically, Kevin Durant cost Baron Davis $50,000. Guess they’re even for those months of lost lockout income when Baron was a lumberjack negotiator. Seems fair enough.
Then again, Kevin’s in the middle of a max contract with another decade of career ahead of him, and Baron hasn’t worked for a year, so maybe KD can pick this one up. Caring counts.
