The NBA Playoffs are getting interesting by the day. On Thursday (Friday in Manila), the Milwaukee Bucks hosted the Toronto Raptors for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference first round matchup.
Heading into the game, the series was tied 1-1 after the Bucks stole a game in Toronto. It’s been a tightly contested affair so far, but the Bucks took the intensity up a notch by trolling the Raptors during the pre-game introductions.
While the members of the Raptors’ starting five were being called, the Barney & Friends theme song was playing inside the Bucks’ arena, much to the delight of the Milwaukee fans.
Watch the video and look at some of the reactions of people on Twitter:

THAT. WAS. COLD.
It looks like the gimmick messed with the Raptors as they lost to the Bucks by a huge margin, 104-77, to trail 2-1 in the series. Should the Bucks do it again in Game 4?
What other songs should your favorite teams play to troll their opponents?
