The last time the Milwaukee Bucks faced off against the Toronto Raptors, Gradey Dick made all sorts of headlines. The rookie did not exactly have a breakout performance in Toronto’s blowout win over the Bucks earlier this season, but more than a few folks out there just had to take notice of how the 19-year-old stood up to Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Gradey Dick Makes Headlines Again Vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Earlier this season, Dick took one right in the chest when he drew an offensive foul against Giannis. It takes a brave man to stand in front of a freight train that is Antetokounmpo, which is why it was a noteworthy effort from the Raptors rookie:

During Wednesday night’s lopsided loss to the Bucks, Dick made all sorts of noise on social media yet again. It wasn’t because of an awe-inspiring play during the game, though. NBA Twitter was buzzing over the former Kansas standout’s player intro right before the game:
The Raptors announcer introduced Gradey Dick as "Mr. Big Dick Energy."

Yup, they really went there. The Raptors announcer really introduced their prized rookie as “Mr. Big Dick Energy.”
I’m pretty sure there were kids in attendance so I’m just hoping they didn’t notice that NSFW moment.
NBA Twitter in Stitches
As expected, the mean streets of Twitter were in stitches after hearing that hilarious yet rather inappropriate announcement right before an NBA game:
“Wearing Number 1, Mr. Big Dick Energy, GRADYYYYYYYY DICKKKKKKK”

What you can say for sure is that there’s going to be a lot more Dick jokes throughout this young man’s career. These will probably never get old.
