Later today, the Atlanta Hawks will be heading to Miami to take on the Heat in an Eastern Conference play-in game.

Before they take part in that battle for a playoff spot, one of their starters made a shocking comparison between Steph Curry and Hawks star Trae Young.

Yesterday, forward John Collins was interviewed by Bally Sports’ Brandon Robinson. During the interview, Collins revealed a wild opinion on Steph Curry and Trae Young.

Collins told Robinson that he believes Young is a better playmaker than Curry.

This is a pretty bold claim to make.

Trae Young certainly puts up great numbers. Over his career, he averages 25.5 points and 9.3 assists per game. This season his numbers are even better as his scoring is up to 26.2 points per game and he is dishing out 10.2 assists per game.

Meanwhile, Curry’s numbers aren’t quite as impressive for his career. He has career averages of 24.6 points and 6.5 assists. However, he has put up some ridiculous scoring numbers in recent years.

2 years ago, Curry averaged 32 points per game while still dishing out 5.8 assists. This year, those numbers are 29.4 points and 6.3 assists.

Young may have the edge when it comes to creating for his teammates, but it’s hard to argue that he’s a better playmaker than Steph.

For years now, Steph has been one of the NBA’s most unstoppable forces on the offensive end of the for while creating just about entirely for himself.

Steph has also regularly done it hon a bigger stage than Young. Year after year, Steph is a nightmare for the league’s best teams to guard in the playoffs and has led the Warriors to multiple rings.

Young just hasn’t been able to lead the Hawks to that kind of success.

Both are great players, but when it comes to making plays, I think most people would rather have the ball in Steph Curry’s hands than Trae Young’s.
