Trae Young

Recommended Posts

Trae is clearly one of the best point guards to come into the NBA in a while. Not many point guards have the ability to initiate the offense like he can plus score in several ways. The ones that do end up being stars. 

 

I think you mean one the best to ever come into the NBA. I looked it up the other day. The only point guard who was head and shoulders above Trae in their rookie year is Allen Iverson. That includes Steve Nash, Stephen Curry, Isiah Thomas, John Stockton, Chris Paul...

 

dont beleive me, go look those players rookie stats. By The way Allen Iversons career numbers are unreal.

Despite the losing effort, Trae Young had 30 points and 10 assists last night! Just look at his average 22.0 points and 9.1 assists per game. All he has to do now is put on some weight and become a better rebounder. I love how the mainstream media is overhyping Luka Donic while Trae isn't getting the respect. Continue to prove the doubters wrong. Never go by the FIRST year, it's always continuity and how you finish. The mainstream media is underestimating the historical rookie stats Trae Young is doing what hasn't been done with rookies in years, and a lot of those rookies ended up getting their teams to the NBA Finals at least one time in their careers or won one. If we can build as a young team and get Anthony Edwards from Atlanta to come to the Hawks after his career with the DAWGS, then our franchise is set for the future for sure. 

How do the Hawks get Anthony Edwards to just come to the Hawks after his career with the Dawgs?

He'll most likely put his name in the 2020 draft after a one and done season in Athens.

Well I think we got a glimpse of Trae's ceiling tonight. Superstar potential. Him plus a possible Top 10 pick from DAL? Yeah give me that. I'm pretty much convinced we won that trade.

Yeah, the better Trae plays, the more Schlenk is grinning, and the more drinks Mark Cuban is having realizing that he got robbed on draft day.

Last night’s game was a reflection of what his overall game looks like when his three point shot is falling.  He put up 36 points on Houston while the while nba world was looking for Harden to extend his 30 ppg streak. What they got was a whole lot of Trae!

Yup, and if he starts getting some calls his free throw rate should increase. He is already becoming an efficient scorer after starting so abysmally. He has a TS% of around 56-57% the last couple of months which is really good for a PG

Trae’s game is amazing.  Due to his size limitations, everything he does is more difficult t pull off - driving to the basket, getting his jump shot off, etc.   Trae is so quick and his handle so good that he can just punish teams when hitting on all cylinders.

Ya it's getting more and more obvious that he is going to be a superstar, next year is going to be fun

According to deeper stats, Trae (in 5 games admittedly) is posting his best month of the year - and that was after his former best month of the year (January). He's posting career highs (month by month stats) in Points, 3FG%, Usage, Offensive Rating, Points/game, Rebounds/game, and Assists/game. This continues a trend that started in DEC of these stats increasing each month (except 3FG%, but it is the highest month all year). He's also averaging just 3 turnovers with 8.6 assists per game this month - career bests, too. His defensive metrics have cratered this month, but I'm hoping for a rebound here as it has gotten worse every month beginning with DEC.

Trae is growing more comfortable before our eyes, but he will have to eventually acquit himself better defensively to help stem offensive runs teams surely go on that can wipe away the offense he is so good at creating.

 

Did he keep up the early fire in FEB for the entire month? Let's compare month-by-month:

            MPG    FG%     3FG%      FT%       TS%      PPG     RPG     APG    TO/G    A/TO   

OCT     31.5     42.9%    34.0%    75.7%    55.2%    19.1      2.9        6.6       3.0       2.19

NOV     28.2     35.5%   19.8%     86.0%    44.3%    14.0      3.1        8.1       4.2       1.93

DEC     29.6     43.1%    34.7%    73.3%    53.0 %   15.8      2.7        7.0       4.4       1.60

JAN      31.3     44.4%    33.7%    86.4%    57.7%    18.7      3.7       7.2        4.1       1.77

FEB      33.7     41.0%    43.7%    84.0%    56.5%     23.3     4.3       9.3        3.3       2.78

You bet he did, and it's not even close!

Of other importance, he notched:

Career best 6.8 attempts at FT line (previous high was 4.7 in JAN)

Career best 7.3 three point attempts (previous high 6.7 in OCT)

Career best Offensive Rating (previous high in JAN)

I don't think it can be overstated how much better he's getting as the season continues. 2019 hit and he took off and he never looked back.

For all the talk about the rookie wall and him wearing down and all, it's pretty awesome he's played every game and seems to be getting stronger as the season goes on.

He started off slow and I was of the mind we were going to watch Luka be a star for years to come while Young would be out of the NBA. Now dudes a bonified star already. When the Hawks start winning JC and Young will be very well known by everyone

I wasn't surprised he started off slowly considering he wasn't playing any kind of competitive bball after March Madness ended. He spent his time preparing for the draft, he had to get in bball shape. Meanwhile, Luka was still playing actual games.

How many does he have now? Side note, Remember when Sheldon Williams got rookie of the month in February, I thought that dude may have turned it around at that point
