More than basketball went down during the Drew League Tournament this past Sunday (Aug. 5th).
This league is known to be a summer basketball group that puts some of the nation’s best players against each other. This year the well-recognized rapper The Game, who plays for Birdie’s Revenge did more than just play ball when he attacked one of his own players while competing against redemption.
The Game swung and hit his teammate Jarion Henry while he was shooting free throws, and this immediately broke into a fight.
The Game later apologized for his actions via Instagram saying, “Today was a tough one for me & my @drewleague team as we lost in the 2nd round of the playoffs by 2 points after winning the championship last season.” He continues his extensive apology by saying “I say that to say, I’m writing this sincere apology 1st & foremost to my teammate & lil brother @j_hennn for my role in our disagreement that went a lot further than it should’ve.” The post has since been deleted off his social media account.
