Season 2 of Young Hollywood’s “Rookie On The Rise” is keeping a close eye on Trae Young. Young was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks with the 5th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and later traded to the Atlanta Hawks.
Young’s rookie year with the Atlanta Hawks is already drawing comparisons to Stephen Curry. He also went from 13 of 23 from the floor, joining the ranks of LeBron James, Jason Kidd, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, and Jerry West. Not only is he looking to break the NBA’s single-game 3-point record, but he’s also set his sights on earning the coveted title of “Rookie of the Year.”
It’s no surprise that Young Hollywood has chosen the athlete as this season’s one to watch. Their series, “Rookie On The Rise,” is made up of 2-5 minute episodes featuring behind-the-scenes moments of the rookie’s journey, including interactions with family and friends, as well as other exciting highlights.
In the next episode, you can check out Young’s photo shoot and hear more about his partnership with Adidas. Take a look at what to expect in the video up above. A new episode airs every Wednesday. Visit younghollywood.com for more.
