Trae Young addresses constant Luka Doncic questions, his viral tweet and those deep 3s | The Jump



Royce Young sits down with Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young to talk about his hot start to the 2019-20 NBA season despite his team struggling, how he was able to reverse his rocky beginning to his career, whether he ever considered changing his game to succeed in the league, his first 35-and-10 game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers, his viral tweet about others apologizing for disrespect, the constant comparisons to Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic and what it’ll take for the questions to stop, what motivates him, his unique 3-point shooting style, and how deep 3s can change the game.

He was the one saying he's better than Luka. Luka stayed humble the whole time. Trae is nice on the court though.

“The thing with Luka,” Young says, “he’s a great player. I don’t understand why it can’t work out for both situations. I hear [Atlanta made a mistake] all the time. Luka’s a great dude, and I think he’s going to be a really good player. But at the same time, I’m going to be a better player. Just because of my ability to stretch the floor, get others involved, I think I’ll be better.”

I like Trae as a Mavs and NBA fan but the guy brought a little of it on his own. I remember him saying that when it was all done, he's be the better player. If you're going to say things like this, then expect to get comparisons your entire career.

Trae is very very good. All star level . Which is why it's a story, because that's how good Luka is. Future GOAT.. it's up to Trae to not become Sam Bowie

I wish trae had more help on the hawks he can't do it alone all the time busting out 49 or 39 every game plus he gets in 9 or 10 dimes a night!! Granted their young and rebuilding but guys need to step up and yea luka has the better team like trae said two totally different situations!!

ITS THE MEDIA!!! ATL got two players for one. Luka is just one of a kind. ATL needs to grow together, They are SOOO "young"

Go Mavs go!

Hope Luka can face off in the finals someday!

Im Slovenian, Im big Luka fan, but i feel bad and it makes me mad people compare them so much. Its not Traes fault he was traded… He didnt ask for it. Hes playing really good and seems like a nice kid. Wish him all the best, he and Luka are both amazing lately and its great it turned out this way.

Trae is a very good player even when the team does not win. The comparison with Luka should not bother him, especially when he enthusiastically claimed that he is better then him without doubt

Even if he becomes a hall of Famer, he will always be the guy that got traded for the best player of all time.
