John & Hugh Discover Trae Young’s Dad Blocked Them On Twitter

“He must be listening to the show on the Audacy app and didn’t like what he heard, which is interesting. While we have been critical of Trae, we have never destroyed him.”

When you are the flagship station of the Atlanta Hawks, it makes sense that your morning show would talk about the team. When things aren’t going well for the team, those conversations can sometimes be critical. Last week, John & Hugh discovered that the dad of Hawks’ star Trae Young apparently did not approve of some of the conversations about his son and the team.

Hugh Douglas revealed that he discovered he was blocked when he tried to see a tweet from Rayford Young detailing what a championship basketball team needs to be successful.

“When I go to the page, all I can see are the comments,” he said. “I can’t actually see the whole thing.”

Douglas said that he then tried to go to Young’s personal page and discovered he was blocked. He revealed that he had met Rayford Young once and they had a lighthearted conversation, so it cannot be a personal problem. Douglas also didn’t think it could be about something he said about Trae Young on the show or online.

“I wasn’t mad. I was more confused than anything because we talk basketball, but I don’t tweet basketball. I don’t tweet basketball like I do football or even baseball.”

John Fricke said that when he found out Douglas was blocked by the elder Young, he checked to see if the same was true for him. It turns out he was blocked as well. That was enough evidence for Fricke that this had to be about something specific. He just didn’t know what.

“I thought well, he’s blocked both of us,” Fricke said. “He must be listening to the show on the Audacy app and didn’t like what he heard, which is interesting. While we have been critical of Trae, we have never destroyed him.”

John & Hugh are far from the only ones that have discussed the Hawks’ struggles this season. Earlier this month, Bleacher Report published a column suggesting that Trae Young could be the next superstar in the NBA to demand a trade. The duo admit that it is something they discussed and expressed disappointment over, but still could not point to anything they had said or done that could be construed as a personal attack.
