Houston Rockets fan and court-side fixture Travis Scott was on hand as the featured performer at the NBA Awards last Monday.
Known for his unhinged and mosh-pit inciting performances, Scott took a more… subdued… approach for the award ceremony.
Here’s what we mean:
Performing a medley of tracks that were arguably his biggest bangers, his stage presence was comatose at best.
And can we talk about the Windows Movie Maker visuals?
As always, Twitter had a lot to say about the performance.

That shot of Bill Russell pretending to have enjoyed the Travis Scott performance is better than him giving the finger.

Conspiracy theory: the NBA were trying to stifle his La Flame. Poor man. Go ahead and trend that one, Twitter.
