Delon Wright: ‘I’ve got a quote ready’ for Kelly Oubre after Raptors beat Wizards

After Delon Wright helped the Raptors to a Game 5 win in Toronto, Wizards forward Kelly Oubre slighted Wright ahead of Game 6 in Washington:

“The next game is a different story. We’re back at home. Just like Delon doesn’t play well anywhere else, you know, other than at home,” Oubre said, sharing inspiration coupled with a touch of an insult. “You can kind of chalk it up as the same story.”

Josh Lewenberg of TSN:

A taunt of taunting – what an appropriate response to Oubre’s diss/self-own.

It also got the ball rolling on a full-on trash-talk back-and-forth.

I don’t know what that means, but like with most things with Oubre, I find it delightful.
