NBA rate: Hawks’ Trae Young has been officially given 5star rating by his  formal controller after….

During his time as a player, Rajon Rondo was a very productive point guard. He discussed Atlanta Hawks standout Trae Young with Rachel Nichols and DeMarcus Cousins on the program “Bully Ball.” As soon as the point guard graduated from college, he would congratulate him on becoming a “unstoppable” player who carried the entire team.

Rondo addressed Nichols and Cousins, saying, “He hasn’t had many vets come in and teach him how to be that type of player and also have a franchise on your back.” “I can’t speak from that standpoint, but even at 22, with a whole franchise riding on his back, I still want him to excel in the classroom and accomplish a lot of other things. For a young individual who is just starting anything new, you’re asking a lot. He’s unbeatable and one of my favorite players I’ve ever played with, so he’s absolutely underappreciated.

Rondo still says that Young is learning

Rondo should know a bit more than most people about Young since he was a part of the Hawks for only the first 27 games during the 2021-2022 season. As he said before, he is one of his favorite teammates despite that short amount of time and compliments the way he plays basketball as Young is “pretty much the only playmaker” on Atlanta’s squad.

The game is different he has the ball in his hands a lot , he is pretty much the only playmaker and you’re going to have numbers, but to still to do it at a consistent level on an night in night out basis,” Rondo said. “And take and make the biggest shots in the game usually in the 4th quarter and that’s what he does every night and he’s learning how to become a better teammate you know, I played with him, they try to knock him for that but he’s young , he’s learning.”

Rondo’s remarks against Young during their time as teammates
It was Young’s third NBA season when Rondo was a member of the Hawks, and one of his responsibilities as an experienced player was to assist in developing the star into an all-around player. According to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic, Rondo spoke to Young as a “really gifted young man” back in 2020 and seems eager to collaborate with him.

“I see a really gifted young man,” Rondo said. “He can do it all. I’ve had a couple of conversations with him, and I can’t wait to get in the film room with him and study his mind and have him understand the best ways to attack defensive breakdowns or how defenses are trying to control and contain him. I’m looking forward to learning from him, what he knows and how he sees the game and also me giving him input on how we can destroy defenses and make his game to another level.”

So far this season, Young is averaging 27 points, 10.9 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game while shooting 42.8 percent from the field. The Hawks are 24-30 which puts them 10th in the Eastern Conference as their next game is Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets.
