Hawks fans are going to have to wait until ESPN’s televised H-O-R-S-E competition to see Trae Young in some capacity anytime soon.
Atlanta’s star second-year point guard was coming off a 101-59 blowout over Harrison Barnes in the tournament’s first round, suggesting he could be the man to beat in the tournament. Unfortunately, Barnes might just be the worst 2K player on the planet.
Young fell to the Suns’ Deandre Ayton on Thursday. The two opted to go with the Staples Center rivalry — Young playing as the Lakers and Ayton as the Clippers, who won the contest 73-66.
Yes, this is where we are at in the sporting news world today. Hawks fans sadly are accustomed to second-round exits, so this one won’t hurt too much. For now, the players have a ton of downtime to refine their 2K skills.
