Former NBA All-Star Inexplicably Trashes Tyrese Haliburton On Knicks Broadcast

It was a bizarre and uncalled-for attack that came out of the blue. But for some reason, on the New York Knicks postgame show on Sunday, former NBA player Wally Szczerbiak absolutely trashed Indiana Pacers' breakout star Tyrese Haliburton. 

Following the Knicks' 109-106 victory over the Pacers, Szczerbiak's analysis seemed to get a bit personal, as he lit into Haliburton thusly:

“Mr. Supposed Wannabe Fake All-Star with the big miss there, and then the rebound by Randle, and then Randle iced the game with all the free throws. Last chance, down three for the wannabe All-Star. Let me keep it that way. He’s in his second year, he’s a very good player, he’s not going to make the All-Star team. A guy like Julius Randle or Jalen Brunson will make it over Tyrese Haliburton. Tonight we saw why.”

Wow. Not sure what the former one-time All-Star has against Haliburton, but it's hardly justified. The Pacers' lead guard is having a breakthrough season, leading the NBA in assists with 10.7 per game, scoring 19.5 per contest, with 1.7 steals and a 38.5% rate from beyond the arc.
