    Trae Young

    Should he take the blame for the hawks failure not to make the nba final

    Yes, some of it...I think coach should have kept him out, so he deserves most of it. Hawks would have been more focused and played harder. You had to win two anyway, plus you would have stole back the 'we are not playing with our best guy mojo.'

    The age of victimhood is real and has affected our psyche's to the core...Also, this can be a completely ignorant statement, but it seems like his injury was more of the pain variety (hence I would have liked to have seen him be a bit tougher in this respect)...I know he's a tough kid, who's learn to take a certain kind of a beating, but this type of uncomfortable pain, he has definitely not conquered..You could kind of see it at the end of game 3. He was there, but he seemed very much disturbed that he had an owie.

    He looked healthy and wasn't hobbling around. He choked and lost his team the game plain and simple.

    No. He was hurt and the Hawks went further than most anyone thought they would.

    He's a complete POS player, entitled brat that'll get his when the drawback occurs. Once the ref calls dry up he'll be exposed, his old man looks like Beetlejuice as well

    Probably true. Guy had some huge games. Props for them getting thru the 1st two rounds.

    Not even the best player on the team, in a heartbeat would take John Collins over Trey..All Trey does is shoot 3's from far out, turns ball over, sure he can score, and couldnt care less about that team, as a Heat fan..

    John Collins didnt do much this series. If ATL gives him a max contract it would be a mistake.

    Trae young gives this team swagger and gets many of these players to play above their talent. I know people donít like him but heís a solid building block around this team and heís doing stuff that many players in their first year in the playoffs donít even come close to doing

    I don’t think Atlanta makes it back to the ECF or Finals anytime soon. Watched them in the playoffs and it looks like they caught lightning in a bottle. Reminded me of the Steve Nash/Amare Suns more than anything else. An offensive juggernaut who can’t stop anyone on defense. Those teams looked like championship teams for a few years also, but couldn’t get over that hump because of defense and toughness. I don’t see how they can improve the roster dramatically and I don’t think what they currently have could run it back in an 82 game regular season and duplicate the playoff results because of the randomness of the current season. Im still not convinced the Hawks are better than the choking 76ers.

    Trae is a wanna be Steph Curry. Little brother on the court so to speak. He jacks up to many 3's and he doesn't have the shot that Steph has. He hurt the team in the end IMO.

    He is not a max but he is a stud as a center is just average playing the 4.
