Trae Young Greatest Sooner NBA Player?



After his 48 point performance this week in Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Finals against Milwaukee, Atlanta Hawk’s guard Trae Young,is now, in my opinion, the greatest University of Oklahoma men’s basketball player to play in the Association.  He takes the place of Blake Griffin, and the others, like Wayman Tidsale, Alvin Adams, Mookie Blaylock, and any one else that has suited up for an NBA team.  Sure, Trae has, barring injury, many more seasons in his career.  But what a first three years and how significant has his play been in his first Playoff experience in 2021?  Look for Young to be a future NBA Hall-of-Fame member down the road.



That is the way I see it sports fans.
