As NBA Fans Return, So Do 'Overrated' Chants at Opposition Players

Atlanta Hawks fans chanted “overrated” at New York Knicks All-Star Julius Randle during game three of the playoff series between the two teams, on May 28.

Randle endured what Spots Illustrated described as a “rough night” as the Knicks fell behind 2-1 in the series, losing 105-94 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, in front of just under 16,000 fans.

Randle, who won the NBA’s Most Improved Player award. for the 2020-21 season, as well as winning his first All-Star, “underperformed,” as the New York Post put it, with just 14 points.
