Tyrese Haliburton was named to the NBA All-Star team this year in just the second season of his career.
Apparently, he had a major hater who didn’t believe he was good enough for the All-Star team. Now, the Indiana Pacers star pulls off the ultimate troll job.
Does anybody remember Wally Szczerbiak? Well, he’s a sports analyst now who shared harsh criticisms of Tyrese Haliburton earlier this season.
So, in response, Haliburton trolled Szczerbiak the best way he could. Bleacher Report shows exactly how the Pacers’ star guard pulled it off.

If you watch the clip, it almost feels like Wally Szczerbiak has a personal vendetta against Tyrese Haliburton. Oh well, Haliburton is surely getting the last laugh.
Petty moves like this are always hilarious. It’s nice to see someone put themselves in a position to troll anybody who doubts them. We’re all for this, to say the least.
Overall, he’s having a solid campaign for Indiana. He’s taken a noticeable jump in production since his rookie year.
Considering he’s averaging 20.3 points and 10.3 assists per game, it’s easy to see why Tyrese Haliburton made the All-Star team.
We’re still a few weeks away from All-Star Weekend. So, we should continue to see Tyrese Haliburton light it up before heading to Utah for a fun weekend.
With that said, keep an eye on Haliburton and the Pacers. They’re right in the thick of the race to participate in the play-in tournament for the postseason.
