Trae Young hits absurd circus shot over the backboard

  Trae Young hits absurd circus shot over the backboard Young continues to put on a show as he does something spectacular seemingly every night.Just minutes into the game against the Dallas Mavericks, the second-year guard did the unthinkable. When the defender used his size to force him out of bounds, Young flung up a shot from behind the backboard and watched it drop in for the bucket.

" I ' d be lying if I said I wasn ' t hurt by seeing it Obviously I would have wanted to play on the team ." "Playing on the Team " is different than being on of 44 to attend try-outs. Trae has been outstanding this season, & this will motivate his future growth.

The most glaring omission: Hawks point guard Trae Young, who’s already an All-Star and, at age 21, expected to get even better.

Young, via Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Good news for Young: He can still make the 2020 Olympic roster. That list is unbinding. USA Basketball has shown a willingness to add deserving players.

Bad news for Young: Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Kyle Lowry, Russell Westbrook, Kemba Walker, Mike Conley, Malcolm Brogdon, Derrick White. The Americans are absolutely loaded at point guard.

Young’s exclusion shows what the USA Basketball brass thinks of him now. That’s a lot of ground to make up in a few months. But it is possible. Getting slighted like this might even motivate Young to address his biggest shortcomings, defense and attitude.
