The crowd at the Yankee Stadium erupted with ‘f*ck Trae Young’ chants during the New York Yankees-Baltimore Orioles clash.
It’s been more than a year now since Trae Young single-handedly uprooted the New York Knicks in the first round of the 2021 playoffs. The shifty guard put up a solid 29.2/2.8/9.2 in the series and led the Hawks to knock out Julius Randle’s Knicks from the postseason. Defeating Tom Thibodeau’s boys in 5 games, Young had a rather chirpy series with the New York, thriving on the role as a villain.
To date, any New York supporter still gets PTSD of a 22-year-old undersized boy knocking their team out of the playoffs. And how do they decide to cope with it? By screaming “f*ck Trae Young” chant whenever possible.
Recently, fans at the Yankee Stadium erupted with the famous New York chant as their Yankees took on the Baltimore Orioles.
Have a look at the clip.

It seems as if the 2-time All-Star feeds off the crowd’s hate. In the 3 games he’s played against the Knicks this 2021-2022 season, Young has averaged a staggering 35.7 points, 6.7 assists, and, 2.7 rebounds.
