Trae Young is a player who has achieved remarkable achievements since joining the NBA in the 2018-2019 season. He has been compared by many to Stephen Curry because of his similarity in playing style to the Golden State Warriors star.
Although only 24 years old and playing the 5th season in the NBA, Trae Young has compared with top superstars like Harden, Westbrook or LeBron James with a special set of stats. Trae Young is one of the best offensive players in the NBA. He is averaging 27.6 points and 9.8 assists in the 2022-2023 season, an extremely impressive number for a player in the position of dribbling defender. With Trae Young, teams will have a significant upgrade in firepower.
However, Trae Young’s problem is his lack of defense. At the Atlanta Hawks, Trae Young became a position frequently exploited by opponents. Waiting for the 24 star to improve is unlikely, especially when Trae Young is only 1m85 tall and does not have an impressive physique to withstand collisions with taller players.
