Trae Young is back at MSG and gets kicked out (1:41).
Trae Young was in Madison Square Garden again, but New York Knicks fans can all take a deep breath as he was not there to bow on the court.
Atlanta Hawks star, Tony Hawks, was a special guest at the Garden's WWE "SmackDown” episode on Friday.
His relationship with Knicks fans was a common storyline during the 2021 NBA playoffs.
Even though it's offseason, "Ice Trae," despite his position as New York's most hateful basketball player, couldn't pass up the chance to cement his reputation.
Young isn't the first to interact with the organization. Young had earlier announced that a pay per view event would be held at State Farm Arena in Atlanta on January 1, 2022.
Young joked that he could suggest a name for the event, but it doesn't have one.
"I don’t know what you think, but New Year’s Trae would make a great event name, and I can’t think of a better way than the WWE Universe to bring in 2022."
Young's appearance follows the release of NBA 2K22. Young was not shy in expressing his disappointment with his position in the videogame.
Last month, the All-Star point guard accepted a maximum five-year extension for designated rookies worth up to $207million.
