Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young made the NBA All-Star game in his second year; here’s what needs to happen for him to do it again.

Atlanta Hawks PG Trae Young has taken the NBA by storm in his first two seasons in the league, falling just shy of a rookie of the year award to none other than Luka Doncic in his first season and being the Team Giannis starting point guard in the All-Star game in his second.

Trae Young had to put up absolutely ridiculous numbers last year to earn a spot on the 12-man All-Star roster. He saw his points per game take a major leap up from 19.1 to 29.6 on 5 more shots, which is absolutely unheard of for a point guard in his sophomore season. His astonishing numbers elevated him into conversations around the top point guards in the league this offseason. While he was named one of the top 8 PGs by Bleacher Report earlier this year, ESPN has him ranked as the 29th best player in the league heading into this season which is a bit of a head-scratcher for Hawks fans.

While he still has work to do in convincing the media of his talent despite the numbers, Trae Young can absolutely make the All-Star game again this season. It won’t be an easy task, to say the least, but here are 3 things that need to happen for Trae to be an All-Star once again.
