It was just last week that Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young made history by being named a starter for this year’s NBA All-Star Game.

The sophomore stud is out here looking every bit the part of it against the conference-rival Philadelphia 76ers Thursday night.

Young dropped 14 points and dished out 10 assists in the first quarter alone. That’s not a typo. And it’s absolutely stunning.

It really was something to behold.

Young entered Thursday’s game averaging 32.8 points and 14.5 assists over his past four outings. That included an emotional 45-point performance mere hours after the passing of childhood icon Kobe Bryant on Sunday.

This kid is something else, ladies and germs.
