When asked about his upcoming return to Sacramento, Rudy Gay responded that it was just another game. Rudy’s been in the league a long time, and it’s an understandable response, but it’s easy to see how some Kings fans could take offense to it. But Rudy clarified the remark on Twitter after someone took offense.
Love the city of Sacramento and my former teammates like brothers. As far as it being another game, it is. I’m not petty or have any hate In my heart just trying to focus on my craft. Also appreciate you being a fan. https://t.co/wwGjYwu9CP

Rudy was always a professional in Sacramento even as he endured a dysfunctional organization and a fan base that often underappreciated him (myself included). Hopefully Rudy receives a warm ovation today.
