Trae Young has been a true sensation since coming into the NBA.
Just 3 years into the league, the guy is playing like an Allen Iverson and smaller version of Kobe Bryant who could sink opponents on their own.
But he adds another dimension to his game with his “Ice Trae” passes which separates him from those two who were notoriously infamous for not passing. And so already he’s an idol for several guards who also want to make it to NBA someday.
Trae Young and his exploits in the NBA are praised by fans of all the ages
Trae has a famous fanbase in and around Atlanta, celebrity artists like Future, 21 Savage, Big Boi, T.I., Lil Yachty, and Quavo, who all have always supported the team and have embraced the State Farm Arena multiple times since Trae’s debut.
Quavo along with Lil Yachty have given Trae his nickname “Ice Trae” in reference to their song “Ice tray”.

But celebrities aren’t the only people admiring the NBA All-Star who just came off of a tremendous season, almost upsetting Milwaukee Bucks in the EC Finals. He has a very young fanbase as well.
Like Kobe and AI, Trae’s moves are copied all around Atlanta and the United States by many young hoopers, and he never disappoints anyone,

This heartwarming tweet and Trae’s response must have made the day for the kid and his father. At just 23 years of age, Trae is truly one of the NBA’s faces with his maturity on and off the basketball court.
