The NBA’s All-Star Weekend is always an opportunity to watch the best players in the game put on a show. So it’s only fitting at Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young unleashed another nutmeg on his opponent in the Rising Stars Challenge.
While defense is hard to come by in this fun All-Star event, New York Knicks rookie RJ Barrett thought he might have a chance to guard Atlanta’s star guard. That’s when Young pulled out his iconic move and left Barrett in his dust with the stadium erupt with delight in seeing Young pull off another nutmeg.
It’s going to be quite a busy weekend for Young. While most players get to enjoy time off, he’s competing in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, the Three-Point Shootout on Saturday and will play for Team Giannis in the All-Star Game on Sunday. This likely won’t be the last nutmeg we see Young pull off in these games either.
