    That is awesome company.
     
    Nobody is touching Oscar Robinson's record. That 24 games of 30/10 as a rookie is just ridiculous.

    A quick look at Trae's last 15 games (2/22 to 3/21):
    24.9 - PPG 44.2% - FG% 40.4% - 3PT% 87.2% - FT% 4.5 - Rebounds per game 8.7 - Assists per game 2.24:1 - Assist to Turnover Ratio Boy has been ballin. This is probably the level of production we can expect from him going forward. Those are All Star numbers. Especially considering some of the jaw dropping plays he had in those games.

    Hey yesterday was a good day for us. We lost (which sucks, but we looked good in defeat) and the Mavs won. 
    Just need the Mavs to stay just out of striking distance of a top 5 pick.

    Outside of the top two Dukies and Morant, the rest of those guys will struggle to unseat a pro in year one. This draft ain't really loaded outside of the Top 3. You better be hoping and praying for some ping pong ball magic. Just look at this year's draft. Outside of the top 5 not a ton of full time starters. Only Ayton, Luka and Trae were really lighting up the scoreboard. Vooch is definitely a possibility. We'll have $25-50M in cap space and could throw a max deal at him. ORL has his Bird Rights but they might not want to match. They are hurting for cap space and might not want to go that deep. We'll see.

    Per Schlenk, both of Trae's technicals were rescinded.

    I love his attitude:
     
    "The blockbuster deal and Doncic’s rapid ascent to rookie of the year favorite have ensured that Young and the executive who drafted him — Atlanta’s general manager, Travis Schlenk — hear about what Doncic is doing on the floor every day. But Young, whose size and strength were routinely questioned by talent evaluators before the draft, doesn’t duck that talk. He is tough enough to embrace it. “I know it’s a part of my life now,” Young said in a telephone interview last Friday, hours before he rang up 49 points, 16 assists and 8 rebounds in a quadruple-overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls. 
    “I tell everybody that hopefully we’re both 15-plus years down the line and we’re still playing and it’s a competition that’s been going since draft night,” Young said. “I think it’s going to go on forever, so might as well just accept it and take it on as a challenge.”  
    “That first month of the year was difficult for me,” Young said. “There’s definitely an adjustment period for any college shooter. And I think that’s what I was going through early on in the season. I was shooting terrible. I was really just thinking about it too much.” And now? “The game,” Young said, “is really starting to slow down for me.”

    He's so anti-Atlanta it hurts. I have no idea why he hates us so much. He wouldn't say a bad word if it was Curry or someone who did that. He would be talking about how the NBA was dumb for messing with Curry, etc.

    Predictably, known-Atlanta-hater Michael Wilbon says Trae Young show boats too often and deserved to be ejected. "Shoot then go back down the court."
    Will be waiting for his opinions on Westbrook, Curry, and Lebron doing stuff like that every night.

    Rookie of the Year favorite Luka Doncic has received some stiff competition as of late, particularly from Hawks guard Trae Young, who has become must-watch entertainment for a suddenly very promising Atlanta squad. Young was so great this week that he took the top spot in the rankings, so often occupied by Doncic. Much more on his rapid ascent below.
     
    #1 Trae Young: The Trae Young Show has officially arrived in the NBA. Every wildest hope and lofty ceiling regarding Young came to fruition in four games over the past week, as the 20-year-old set career highs with 36 points and eight 3-pointers in a loss to the Rockets, then followed it up with 36 again in the very next game -- a comeback win over the Timberwolves. Young has been brilliant, but the key is that instead of his increased scoring hindering his playmaking and passing ability, it's actually bolstered it. Teams have occasionally been throwing soft traps at Young (not uncommon for point guards of his size), and since he's been so good at throwing lobs to rolling bigs, teams have cut off the lane as well. So what has Young done? He's been patient, flinging cross-court lefty passes on time and on target to waiting open.
