#1 was not the best play of his.  But whatever.  Odd that all the highlights are from home games

Well it's a Hawks highlight package, you want the home crowd reaction and excitement on winning plays.

Trae Young, Hawks

Rookie Report: Young’s uneven year ended in satisfying fashion as he closed the season with 24.0 points and 9.3 assists per game in his last 20 contests. Young didn’t appear overwhelmed by NBA length in his first season, earning cleaner looks than his 32.4% mark from three would suggest. His efficiency should see an uptick in year two. 

Young entered his rookie year as a dead-eye shooter, but he exited the season as one of the league’s most inventive passers. Young is wise beyond his years as a pick-and-roll ball handler. He probes with the patience of Mike Conley, then rifles the ball the second he catches a defense leaning. Young can skip the ball to any corner of the court, even with his off hand. His feathery touch on lobs is pristine–elegant teardrops fall into the arms of John Collins and Alex Len. Young was a gunner by necessity at Oklahoma. He was a brilliant rookie maestro in Atlanta. 

The Next Step: Let’s see Young truly make teams pay from beyond the arc. His playmaking is elite for his age, and he’ll frankly be a defensive sieve for the rest of his career. Young will need to emulate Damian Lillard and Steph Curry for Atlanta to make a leap in the next decade. Simple flashes of the Western Conference superstars will suffice in year two.

Trae is better than Stephen Curry.  Better handles, better passer and as good if not better shooter...

Wow, the hype is real now.

Trae went from "Steph wannabe" to "he's better than Steph."

I will say that I believe Trae is a better passer. Steph IMO is still the greatest shooter of all time, but we'll see how Trae develops.

Trae has a better floater and his deep 3 pointers are better.  Stephen obviously has been in the league longer but Trae will be better.  As you pointed out his passing is better.  Stephen's handles are nowhere near Trae's...

Trae is the better passer, but Curry is legit the best shooter of all time.  Trae has a looooooong way to go if he wants to top that, or even get close to it really.

I mean, Steph is an inner circle HOFer.  Maybe let Trae become whatever he will become before proclaiming him as better than one of the all time best.

How about “at this stage of his career” he is tracking better than Steph. 
Long way to go to match the achievements of the great Steph Curry. 
 

On another note, first MJ says Curry is not a hall a famer, now Trae Young is better than him. Lol. 

Give that man his respect.
