Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young has been showing the Los Angeles Lakers a ton of love lately.

During the NBA 2K Players Tournament on Thursday, Young lavished utilizing LeBron James and the Lakers.

Last week, Young declared that the Lakers were going to win the championship this season because James was on another level.

Young’s assertion wasn’t crazy. As a matter of fact, the Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference and hold the second-best record in the entire league.

James, is in fact, why the Lakers are experiencing so much success this year. He is posting 25.7 points, 10.6 assists and 7.9 rebound per contest this season.

Young, on the other hand, is on one of the worst teams in the association. However, he is having a fantastic second season in the league.

The 21-year-old is averaging 29.6 points, 9.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game this season.
