Hawks PG Trae Young response to Celtics crowd’s “F*** Trae Young” chants with: “I think it’s just total respect”

Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks has responded to the “F*** Trae Young” chants from the Boston Celtics crowd during their recent playoff game, saying that it’s a sign of respect. The 22-year-old point guard scored 38 points and led the Hawks to a thrilling 119-117 win over the Celtics, which saw the Hawks rally from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter.

Despite the win, the home crowd in Boston was hostile towards Young, repeatedly chanting the expletive aimed at him during the game. However, Young didn’t seem to be affected by it and actually took it as a compliment.

“I think it’s just total respect,” Young said after the game. “They ain’t doing that to everybody. But it’s just funny to me, because I know where I’m at, I know what they’re chanting and it’s just funny to me.”

The chants from the crowd only seemed to fuel Young’s fire, as he scored 16 points in the fourth quarter alone, including a deep go-ahead three-pointer with just 1.8 seconds left on the clock.

Young’s performance has been a major factor in the Hawks’ playoff run this season, as he’s been averaging 29.8 points and 10.0 assists per game in the postseason. Despite being one of the youngest players in the league, Young has already proven himself to be a clutch performer, with several game-winning shots and performances under his belt.

With the series now shifting back to Atlanta for Game 6, the Hawks will be hoping to continue their momentum and force a Game 7. Young’s response to the hostile crowd in Boston shows that he’s not afraid of a little adversity and that he’s ready to lead his team to victory, no matter what the circumstances.



Trae Young and His Game-Winning Shot Lifts Hawks Over Celtics in Thriller

Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young’s heroics took center stage as he scored 38 points, including a game-winning three-pointer with just 1.5 seconds left on the clock, to lead the Hawks to a 119-117 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the first-round playoff series on Tuesday.

Despite trailing by as many as 13 points, Young kept Atlanta in the game and capped off an impressive fourth quarter with his game-winning shot from beyond the arc. Young’s heroics overshadowed the Celtics’ Jaylen Brown, who had a game-high 35 points, and Jayson Tatum, who struggled from the field, shooting just 8-of-22 and missing 10 of his 11 three-point attempts.

The Celtics had a chance to close out the series on their home floor, but their inability to contain Young proved costly. Now, Boston holds a 3-2 series lead, and the pressure will be on the Celtics to regroup and secure a win in Thursday’s Game 6 in Atlanta to avoid a winner-takes-all Game 7.

Young’s game-winner, coupled with his comments about the Boston crowd’s “F*** Trae Young” chants, cements his status as a clutch performer and a player who can thrive in high-pressure situations.
