Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young was thrilled to show off his first car, a new matte black $138,000 Audi R8, in July.
Young’s teammates let his newness wear off a bit for bursting his proverbial bubble, and stuffed the new custom car with loads of popcorn Friday.
The playful prank was documented by point guard Jeremy Lin.
“That's high-level popcorn!” Lin said in a video.
Young wasn’t the only rookie on the receiving end of a prank. Omari Spellman’s car was packed to the brim, too.
Who needs friends when you’ve got teammates like them, right?
“The rooks seemed to take it in stride ... which is good news for the Hawks vets,” TMZ reported.
