The American sports magazine ‘The Athletic’ recently conducted an interesting survey.
An anonymous survey was conducted among active players. The most underrated players and the most overrated players were announced.
The number one underrated player was the Milwaukee Bucks’ George Holliday. He is a point guard who is both an offensive and defensive player, and has the best defense in the league.
The number one overrated player was Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks. There were two reasons. First of all, poor defense. It was because of the exceptionally ups and downs in the field goal rate this season.
Trae Young’s rebellion has begun. Explosion in 2 games in a row, dominating the playoffs.
Young played 44 minutes in the 5th game between Atlanta and Boston in the 1st round of the 2022-2023 NBA Eastern Conference playoffs (4 out of 7) held at TD Garden in Boston, USA on the 26th (Korean time) and recorded 38 points and 13 assists.
In the end, Atlanta defeated Boston 119-117. The series had a record of 2 wins and 3 losses.
In particular, Young hit three 3-point shots in the 4th quarter in a desperate situation. He hit 3 points on the step back with about 3 minutes left in the game, then immediately exploded 3 points in a row to tie the game.
1.8 seconds before the end of the game, which was behind by 1 point, he fired a long-range step-back 3 points and silenced the TD Garden.메이저사이트
Young reaffirmed that he was Atlanta’s ace, playing well in his last Game 3 as well.
Boston is a team with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown’s super one-two punch, but what’s even scarier is their defensive ability on the perimeter. There is Marcus Smart, the best defender in the league, and Derek White and Malcolm Brogdon rotate to press the opponent throughout the 48 minutes. Under such pressure, Young persevered and proved his worth. In PO, we need to be even more wary of Young, the ‘overestimated number 1’.
