The Wizards eliminated the Hawks from the playoffs on Friday thanks to an epic 42-point performance from John Wall, which included an incredible series of shot-making late that carried Washington to the second round.
Wall didn’t do all that quietly, either. He had a friendly bit of trash talk for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who (along with musicians Quavo and Gucci Mane) had a front-row seat for Wall’s heroics.

Wall revealed what he said to the trio afterward, and no, his comments didn’t reference the Falcons’ crushing Super Bowl loss.

“I told them I was going to get 35 or more and we were gonna win, and we did that,” Wall said. “For the culture.”
