If you’ve ever felt old listening to younger people talk about their music tastes, the 2019 NBA draftees are about to make you feel even older.
ESPN quizzed some of the up-and-coming players about the ’90s and they had no idea who former AP cover stars OutKast were.
The players also couldn’t recognize a Super Nintendo or an Easy Bake Oven and most bafflingly, Destiny’s Child.
Some people online didn’t take too kindly to the player’s age shining through in their responses. Take a look below at how some are reacting online.

Antonia Cereijido spotted the OutKast member wandering around the terminal playing the flute, and after 40 minutes of trying to figure out if it was really him, she went and asked.
I saw a man walking around my terminal playing a flute for 40min and was losing my mind because I thought it was André 3000. And then it WAS André 3000!!! 😍😍😍😭😭 pic.twitter.com/tqQ4C8HBh1
