Dejounte Murray of the Atlanta Hawks hit Orlando Magic rookie Paolo Banchero with a sick pump fake at the Zeke-End pro-am basketball tournament in Washington on Sunday, which even had Murray’s teammate, Trae Young, shook.

Banchero then had some words for Murray on Instagram after the viral moment:
And while the initial exchange might have had a “big bro picking on little bro in the gym” vibe, Murray’s own response indicated it perhaps runs a bit deeper:
It isn’t easy having your soul stolen from your body on the court, but it happens to most players at some point if they reach the NBA, and Banchero got an early taste of that treatment.
Call it a learning experience for this year’s top overall pick. A harsh lesson, to be fair, and one that Murray clearly felt Banchero needs to heed.
