Add the New York Knicks’ R.J. Barrett to Trae Young’s nutmeg victims list.
This occurred early in the 2020 Rising Stars Rookie/ Sophomore game in Chicago. Trae saw Barrett on him and methodically dribbled left and right between his legs. R.J. didn’t know how to act and tried backing up. In an instant, Young dribbled between Barrett’s legs to the oohs and aahs of the United Center. Ice Trae then threw up a floater that bounced in to complete the highlight.
The sneakers Trae slipped on was the adidas N3XT L3V3L. This features a laceless, compression Primeknit upper that was comfortable straight out of the box. Lightstrike foam is used in the midsole for lightweight comfort on the court and off.
Young rocked a black and white custom for this moment, with Mamba Academy logos throughout to honor Kobe Bryant.
