Atlanta Hawks Guard Trae Young Got Ejected For An Incredibly Dumb Reason

Atlanta Hawks Guard Trae Young is one of the most exciting players in the NBA. The fifth-year guard out of Oklahoma has limitless range and can score from anywhere, while also being one of the league’s best passers.

Trae Young led the Hawks to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2021, and was considered one of the league’s best young players and a borderline superstar. But, the Hawks played just slightly better than .500 basketball last year, and this year are playing .500 ball exactly, as they stand at 37-37 with eight games left.

I don’t know if Young is frustrated with the poor play of his team, but something boiled over in Saturday’s game, as he was ejected for an incredibly dumb act.

Yeah, you can’t do that, Trae. That’s his 15th technical of the season, and I’d be surprised if a fine wasn’t coming his way, even though I don’t think it will warrant a suspension.

NBA fans sounded off on the incident.

But, the Hawks won without Trae Young, anyways, as they beat the Pacers 143-130.
