Trae Young may not be balling for Team USA like he wished he was, but he did receive some praise from LeBron James for his performance in the Skinz League.
Young has been having a blast playing in the Skinz League. His performance included a game clinching buzzer beater to lead his team to victory.
The Pro-Am league is taking place in Oklahoma City, and seeing an NBA star in their presence, the crowd went absolutely nuts during Young’s crazy performance. Here’s the buzzer beater in case you’ve missed it:

LeBron James Has High Praise For Trae Young And His Crazy Shot
Whenever you pull off an incredible shot like that, you’re going to draw attention from some of the biggest stars in the NBA. For Young, those stars included LeBron James.
The King is active as ever on social media, and seeing clips of Young’s shot, ‘The King’ had to make a comment about how great Young is:

In the comments section of Young’s post, you can see that LeBron’s has the most likes so far. Earning the praise of the Lakers superstar must feel good for Young.
The Hawks star absolutely balled out this season, averaging a ridiculous 25.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 9.4 assists per game. Things only got better in the playoffs as Young surprisingly led Atlanta to the Eastern Conference Finals where they would lose to the eventual NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks in 6 games.
The future is bright for Young and the Hawks, and if they can have a solid offseason, Ice Trae could be gearing up for another great run next season.
