Listen: Trae Young, Hawks And Wizards discussed on Big Time Basketball
"That like like you know I liked trae young and obviously John Collins suspension hurts but young teams typically especially on the defensive end. Just do not know how to get together and as much like the Andre Hunter. They're just just they just don't have the horses out compete. I think defensively and trae young offensively as a bottom five defensive player in the League. Now the wizards don't play they got is it Thomas. It Got Brad Beal. You can't say just young team. With the best wizards defender Mo- bogged. He's their best defender. He takes the most charges in the NBA. He like He. He makes multiple efforts and either young player. He has very little experience. Don't give me that young player sometimes emphasize it and right now the hawks they just take the ball ball goes through the net. And just take it out. I don't care was pointing at each other. No there's no accountability on the Defense Vin with your same same big by the way everybody that was complaining about because I saw. I think it was the hawks announcers on their TV broadcasts. Were complaining about James Harden. He sarcastically saying like I'm only two points short of my of of my career high of sixty two and got taken out of that game. I believe trae young still in the game like the Hawks were still playing all of their best players. So I don't understand that whatsoever. They're down fifty in the third quarter and TRAE. The young and company are still in that game still trying to get their stats up. So I don't know I feel like that's like you know throwing rocks at a glass house here but they are as much as I like watching trae young. This is the issue that I have. Is I just spiel like he you know he's always going to be really. They have to build a very specific team around because of how bad he is defensively. And then when you get to the playoffs it's a whole different story right. I know we will let you elaborate on that but that that. That is my worry about the hawks knowing this year but going into the future. Yeah I agree. I think that was part of the thought process behind drafting the Andrea Hunter from Virginia. That he could be an elite wing. Defender hasn't been so far but not many rookies are twenty twenty amps into their first season. The League so that takes some time but yeah more more concerning I think is what scale was talking. How about? Just the lack of competitiveness as a young team. You have an experienced guys. I've been there. You'll lose a lot of the losses. Get pretty ugly but at least you WanNa see teams competing in trying buying and when they lay down and down forty and fifty points that's one gets concerning for me is an executive that that's when you say. Jeez how. How do we get the genie back in the bottle? Or how do we get these young guys. It's no matter what to scrap Clai and compete and scale made a great point about Mo- Wagner young player out of Michigan and his second year but he's already won the league leaders in charges because the east competing heating. The Wizards are horrible. Defensive Team but that doesn't mean more wagner is not laying body online trying to take charge after charge even when they're down thirty or forty points and you're building a team you try to get stars the top of your roster we also try to find young players to fill out the roster who can play a role play a certain role in play off of your stars but your point is well taken with with trae young at at the point of tack especially defensively. You're going to need a specific kind of play around him in usually on the wing that has to be a good defender who can also spot up and shoot and they need to find some kind of better rim protection because what they have. Now if you're bad at the point of attack like they are with trae young defensively you can't also be bad at the rim. They're bad in both areas right right now and I think that's one of the main reasons. Why the Hawks hemorrhaging points? Hey speaking"
