Trae Young is NBA Twitter conversation On Wednesday night, the Eagles star broke a playoff career-high 48 points in Atlanta’s 116-113 victory over Milwaukee. But did Yang enjoy his impressive performance in the Eastern Conference Finals too much?
No, he didn’t do it because sports should be fun, and a two-time NBA MVP seems to agree with this idea.
In the third quarter of the first game, Yang used a left-to-right vicious cross to defeat the Bucks defender Zhu Holliday, allowing him to make an open three-pointer. However, before he released the ball, Yang decided to pitch a little.
“I have a lot of time,” Yang said After the game. “I’m a little tired, a little tired. So I have a little time to take a deep breath and knock it down.”
In the next timeout after Yang’s shot, Giannis Antetokounmpo can be seen copying Yang’s swing in front of his Bucks teammates, perhaps to inspire better defensive efforts.
During the post-match media interview, when asked if he personally accepted the mercy, Antetokounmpo, who scored 34 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists in the loss, quickly shut him out and (hopefully) avoided stupidity. The hot search cycle.
“He just has fun. He enjoys the game,” Antetokounmpo says“Obviously I don’t want him to shoot, but he has a lot of fun. He enjoys the game. We will do the same as a team. We will have a good time. We will enjoy the game. Sometimes Brin [Forbes] Or Jrue may jitter or whatever. I might mean the cup.
“This is just part of the game. Nothing. You can’t treat it as a person.”
Thank you, Giannis. Let us all appreciate the entertainment provided by Yang and prepare for the second game.
