This is flat out embarrassing.

The Atlanta Hawks visited the New York Knicks for a Dec. 7 game at Madison Square Garden (MSG), and before the game, Trae Young was spotted wearing Knicks-colored sneakers embroidered with the words “King of Broadway.”

But when we got to the actual game, Young was average at best (19 points, 6 assists) in a 113-89 blowout loss to the Knicks.

If that wasn’t embarrassing enough, the Knicks called him out for the whole ordeal on Twitter.

And then you have this gem:

This was a thoroughbred owning by the New York Knicks. If Trae Young ever wanted to open a business teaching people how to get completely steamrolled, that thing would make a killing. It could happen — there’s a business for everything nowadays. (RELATED: Philadelphia 76ers Suffer Painful Double-Overtime Loss And James Harden Went To Strip Club With Rapper, Huge Stacks Of Cash)

Plus, let’s be honest, those sneakers are ugly as hell. Don’t get me wrong: I like the concept and the Knicks colors, and if Trae Young had come into MSG with the same-colored Jordan 1s or 4s, or some Nike Air Force Ones or something flashy like that with the same “King of Broadway” stitching, and if the Hawks had beaten the Knicks, we’d be having a completely different conversation right now.

But we’re not.

The dude flat out embarrassed himself.
