Trae Young is becoming must-watch, but some of his antics seem to be growing old with opponents. Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Hawks stud sophomore guard Trae Young got somewhat of a wake-up call during Saturday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Known for humiliating opposing defenders , Young set out to nutmeg Portland Trail Blazers veteran forward Trevor Ariza.

As you can see, Ariza was not having any of it. He committed a hard foul on the All-Star and was given a flagrant foul for his effort.

Young hilariously asked for more after the foul. And in an interesting turn of events, he was called for a technical a bit later after showing up Mr. Ariza.

The NBA of petty was out in full force Saturday night. That’s for sure.
