Trae Young isn't shy to share his opinion on anything and he uses social media as his platform to make his voice heard. The Atlanta Hawks' young superstar has been paying attention to everything that's happened in the NBA recently, even sending big messages to veteran players.
First, he believed that a Ballsack Sports quote from Draymond Green was actually real, firing back at the Golden State Warriors player on Twitter. That's part of the past now, but Trae hasn't stopped taking jabs at people.
More recently, he trolled Patrick Beverley after the NBA All-Defensive Teams were announced. After a season where we watched a lot of good players doing impressive things on the less glamorous side of the ball, the two teams are stacked full of people that can make life hard for their rivals.
First team: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Mikal Bridges, Rudy Gobert, Jaren Jackson Jr., Marcus Smart
Second team: Bam Adebayo, Draymond Green, Jrue Holiday, Matisse Thybulle, Robert Williams III
As you can see, there's no Patrick Beverley in sight, and Young noticed that. The player took to Twitter to send a short but hilarious message about Bev's snub, claiming that he must have been 'tripping' somewhere after not getting selected for any of these teams:
"Pat Bev somewhere Trippin fasho😂," Trae wrote on Friday night.
Trae is a troll. He loves poking the bear, and this isn't the exception. Beverley has been doing a lot of talk in recent days, going after Chris Paul and his defense, calling him a 'cone'. Many people came in Paul's defense, including Danny Green, who told Beverley he's not playing defense, either.
Now Trae has joined this group, taking a jab at Beverley, who has been called a defensive specialist by many people in the past.
