NBA fans can’t help but be inspired by Trae Young’s confidence. As everyone is aware, Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics are currently the opponent for Young’s Atlanta Hawks in their first-round game. Since Trae and the Hawks managed to secure the 7th seed after defeating the Miami Heat in the play-in tournament, they are now stacked up against the 2nd-seeded Boston Celtics.
Trae continues to have faith in his skills despite the fact that many NBA critics and analysts thought the Celtics would easily win this series. Even when questioned about the jeering from Celtics supporters during this series, he responded with maturity and openness. Let’s look more closely at what Young has to say about this.
Trae Young claims that NBA fans respect him despite ugly chants
The Atlanta Hawks star is accustomed to facing hatred and taking on a villainous persona. In fact, after defeating groups with fervent fan bases like the New York Knicks in the prior postseasons, he even began to enjoy it.
Therefore, it wasn t really a surprise to find out that he has grown accustomed to the feeling of being dissed and mocked by fans from the opposing team. He recently stated that he occasionally felt unique as a result of all the chants. especially considering that not every player in the league is treated equally.
People should treat everyone with great respect when they do it, in my opinion.

Young might have a point, though. After all, a player would undoubtedly need to be skilled if supporters felt the need to rile him up with cries and seek to knock him off his game. The most recent instance, when the Hawks went to Boston for Game 5 and won, showed that it obviously didn’t work on Trae.
Despite theF*ck Trae Youngand other similar chants, hescoreda game-high 38 points, 13 assists, and 4 rebounds to carry his team to a narrow and impressive 117-119 win. Every point he scored was necessary considering that the Hawks were on the verge of elimination and down 3-1 heading into this series.
Trae has shown to love the negative attention that fans thrust upon him. He will certainly have another dose in a potential Game 7 if the Hawks manage to defend home court for Game 6 against the Celtics.
