The Future is Blindingly Bright

Trae Young certainly has a long way to go before reaching mega star icon status, but he clearly has the skill level, charisma and the desire to be great. While I would never project anyone to reach the level of Michael Jordan, I would not put anything past Trae Young.

He definitely has a burning desire and the ability, to take the Atlanta Hawks places that they have never been. If he continues to cultivate the Jordan mentality and work ethic, multiple NBA championships could very well be in the future for Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks.

If he does win multiple titles, maybe he will become one of the superstar athletes that is recognized globally by one name. Jordan, Magic, Kobe, Shaq, LeBron, Trae.

Maybe millions or even billions of kids, will then be wearing Atlanta Hawks jerseys and Trae Young shoes, while imitating his moves on playgrounds around the world. When that happens we can queue the music. “I wanna be, I wanna be like Trae. Oh. If I could be like Trae.”
