If we had to sum up the Atlanta Hawks in one highlight, this would be it. Trae Young is an incredible talent, but the team around him is still lacking...as evidenced by Young showcasing his handles, but being forced to make a pass to the likes of Jabari Parker. The Duke product blew the lay-up, and Young's pass won't go into the official statbook.

The Hawks and Young's ascents are on different timelines. Atlanta is a young team that should be fun to watch regardless of their record, as they have the offensive potential to outscore just about any team in the NBA. You heard that right, they're NBA League Pass All-Stars.
