Knicks fans simly could not wait to chant ‘Fuck Trae Young,’ even though he never stepped foot on he court on Christmas.
The NBA has recently been hit hard by a COVID-19 outbreak. Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young was forced to sit out the Christmas Day game against the Knicks, but his presence was still felt.
Before halftime and towards the end of the Knicks blowout, the fans at Madison Square Garden could be heard screaming ‘Fuck Trae Young.’
After the game, Young took to Twitter and pondered why the fan base waited so long in the game to start chanting his name.
Young became New York’s latest postseason villain when he led the underdog Atlanta to a five-game win in the first round of the playoffs last Spring. Two of those wins came at MSG and he has been hated ever since.
Keep things up and Young might start to enter the Reggie Miller type of hate from Knicks fans.
