Is the bing bong trend related to New York Knicks?

The phrase bing bong has now become a new rally cry for the New York Knicks - for players and fans alike.

After their season-opening against the Boston Celtics at Madison Square Garden, Side Talk NYC went to see how fans were celebrating the win.

The duo behind the self-proclaimed ...one-minute street show... which roams around the Big Apple spoke to supporters to see their reactions.

One man, Jordie Bloom, hilariously skipped the small talk and instead looked straight into the camera saying: ...Bing bong!...

He explained: ...It relates back to the subway doors, the fact that it has New York ties, and the fact that what it means is only positive things.

...It means, like, let’s go win a chip. Let’s go, Knicks. That’s why people got behind it, because it sounds a little ridiculous at first. But the more you say it, the more it catches on....

Now thousands of Knicks fans have adopted the phrase, while the team's official Twitter page even joined in with the fun.

They tweeted a short video of a player effortlessly dunking alongside the : ...Bing bong....

Shooting guard Evan Fournier even relished in the glory of his team's win with the phrase, tweeting in October 2021, ...Great TEAM win tonight !! Bing Bong!...
