Scottie Barnes called someone from Brampton a waste yute and people are loving it
The NBA Rookie of the Year is one of the most promising young stars in the league, but like many other 20-year-olds, he spends some of his spare time playing and streaming video games, specifically NBA 2K22.

In the brief clip, Barnes asks his opponent, "oh you're a Toronto man now," adding, "Where are you from, you're from Brampton?"
After confirmation that the other player is in fact from said 905 city, Barnes says in a perfect Toronto accent, "Yooo guys, this guy say he from Brampton! Get this look of waste yute up out of here. You're a waste yute, fam."
People are eating up this comedic exchange, with one commenter suggesting the Raptors immediately sign him to a max contract, and others noting his appreciation of local culture.
Scotties a man of culture— Siy (@vijisiyanthan) June 8, 2022
"Scottie Barnes calling a Brampton man a waste yute just made my night," reads one comment.
One could interpret it as a good sign that Barnes is invested in the team and the city, and not just playing out his contract as other big-name players have been accused of in the past.
Scottie coming in strong with Toronto accent development 💪🏼— Alec Rados (@ScottieforROY) June 8, 2022
It's hard not to love the 2021-22 NBA Rookie of the Year, who narrowly won the honour over Cleveland Cavaliers forward Evan Mobley back in April, garnering 48 out of 100 first-place votes from a panel of sports media personalities.
Someone give this man a key to the city immediately.
