The Raptors Pissing The Celtics Off By Chanting 'Hey Batter Batter' At Jaylen Brown While Shooting Free Throws Is Simply Hilarious

[The Athletic] - With 18.9 seconds left in the first overtime and Toronto up 106-104, Brown gets fouled on an after-timeout play where Marcus Smart found him at the rim on the inbounds pass for an alley-oop attempt. But as Brown goes to shoot his free throws, the Field House arena is filled with the sound of a childhood refrain from another sport.

“Hey batter batter, hey batter batter…”

It’s hard to tell if it’s Raptors players or coaches — or both — who are singing that song. But the lack of fans means these sorts of things are heard even clearer and more loudly than ever before.

What’s more, it clearly irked Brown and the Celtics. This sequence, it seems, had everything to do with Brown’s postgame perspective

This isn't even hating the Celtics, this is a legit question. How big of mental midgets are these guys? Getting irked because a bench is chanting 'hey batter batter' to you at the free throw line with the game on the line? What do you expect them to do? Sit there dead quiet and act professional. Fuck no. We're talking about winning a game. They aren't crossing some unwritten rule line. The fact they are chanting 'hey batter batter' is so corny it's fucking hilarious. It makes no sense. I actually hope it was Nick Nurse leading it. We already have the Celtics bitching about him on the court: 

I know this is a tough concept for Celtics fans to understand, but Nick Nurse was wearing a completely different colored shirt than the Raptors. Even than the Celtics too! Here's an idea for Jayson Tatum. Don't pass it to a guy wearing a different colored shirt than you. That's just a pretty good goal no matter the situation. Now if he was the one leading the 'Hey batter batter' chant it'd be even better. Just go full heel, Nurse. Start chanting all random other sports chants at them. Hit em with an 'ole, ole, ole.' Hit the Celtics with a 'SHOOT IT' like every annoying hockey fan during a power play. 

This is the most childish shit ever and I can't get enough of it.
