Just after his San Antonio Spurs teammate, DeMar DeRozan began his TikTok acting career, veteran forward Rudy Gay started his account off with a bang.

Yesterday, we highlighted the TikTok acting career of San Antonio Spurs star DeMar DeRozan, who reenacted a famous scene from the 2002 buddy action film “All About the Benjamins.” Little did we know, Rudy Gay was gearing up for his own entrance to the popular social video platform with an iconic homage to actor and comedian Tracy Morgan.

Gay published his first public TikTok video on Wednesday as “Hustle Man,” one of Morgan’s most eccentric characters from the hit television show “Martin,” which aired in the mid-90s.

Starring Martin Lawrence playing a modified version of himself, “Martin” is one of the most quotable, memorable television shows in history. It had a five season-long run of 132 episodes that set Lawrence apart as a comedy genius and solidified him in the minds and hearts of Americans everywhere.

The scene that Gay reenacted was from the 75th episode of the show entitled “Mother of the Bride,” which was the 21st episode of the third season. In this episode, Martin hires Morgan’s character, Hustle Man to help plan his wedding in an economically resourceful manner.

We’ve seen some of Gay’s personality away from the court through his endeavors in fashion during hiatuses and offseasons. He’s a fun-loving individual who works his tail off to be the best version of himself both on and off the court. Though he’s having a down season compared to the 2018-19 campaign that earned him a hefty payday this past offseason, Gay is still a valuable player to the team’s culture while providing a scoring punch off the bench.

Gay is averaging 10 points and 5.4 rebounds per game this season in San Antonio, helping to aid a team fighting to make their way back into the playoff picture. Nearing the end of his playing career, Gay injuries that could’ve put an end to his playing career. However, he’s persevered every step of the way and is a more well-rounded player because of it.
