On Instagram Paolo Banchero and Dejounte Murray exchange barbs
Dejounte Murray of the Hawks exchanged barbs with Magic rookie Paolo Banchero on social media after dunking over him on Sunday during the “Zeke-End” pro-am game organised by NBA veteran Isaiah Thomas.
Following the virality of the video of Murray dunking over Banchero, Banchero turned to Instagram to call Murray out for unfollowing him and turning the on-court rivalry personal.
Murray reacted angrily to Banchero’s letter, insulting the Magic rookie’s character in the process.
Murray commented, “You tried to flex your #1 pick s—t on me when I was pulling for you when you were a child wanting to rebound for me.”
“Don’t get on the internet and say nothing… You’ve transformed from the modest child you’ve always been, and I’m standing on genuine s—t, son, and you know it!!!!!!! You made it and then changed, and I lost all respect for you.”
Murray and Banchero’s new rivalry—one that fans didn’t realise they needed—should bring some drama to Magic-Hawks games this season.
