Following the fight, Game issued an apology to Henry on Instagram, calling it an out-of-character moment. “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,” he wrote in a since-deleted post.
He continued, “I acted out of character & although as brothers for the last 7 years & one of my teammates I definitely consider family…. there are always heated moments on the court & in our locker room but it should never get to where it got to today… so again, this is my apology fam.”
He also apologized to the league’s commissioner, Dino Smiley. “Secondly, I apologize to the @drewleague commissioner ‘Dino Smiley’ as well as his daughter Chanel Smiley for how things spiraled out of control today as you know my character as of late is far better than what was demonstrated today.”
After the altercation, Game spoke to Henry and apologized. “I’ve talked to @j_hennn & we both voiced our opinions & as well our apologies to one another,” he explained. “I just felt the only way for my feelings to reach to all of you at once was to bring here….so here I am.”
