All-Star Game 2022 | Trae Young promises spectacle and a real match | NBA

A defenseless gala match that turns into a shooting contest or a rambling encounter? This is what we always fear as a basketball fan approaching an All-Star Game. The “Elam Ending” seems to offer a second youth to the format, even if it remains quite difficult to read for the general public.

The trigger often comes from the players and what they want to do with this star game. It can also be enough for a fact of play for everything to change and give rise to a real opposition between the stars.

For Trae Young, all the elements are there for the show and the competition to be there.

“It’s going to be fun, but it’s also going to be competitive, that’s for sure. I think we have a lot of youngsters in our team who will push the ball and set the pace, so it’s going to be fun. These guys have a lot of talent, that’s for sure, but it’s also going to be fun.”did he declare.

Stephen Curry and Luka Doncic to raise the temperature

Trae Young knows that the competition could quickly take over against a champion like Stephen Curry, who will not let the All-Star Game be reduced to a shooting contest, even if he and Trae Young should draw from very far as we have been able to see it during the last two editions with memorable baskets.

“Hopefully we get another opportunity to end a quarter with a shot from midfield this year. Who knows ? It’s gonna be fun. I can not wait to be there. Maybe one day we’ll end up playing on the same team, but this year we’ll be able to play each other again.”he added.

Same thing with Luka Doncic, against whom Trae Young expects a fierce duel, as always, even if the leader of the Hawks took the opportunity to reaffirm that the two players got along rather well off the field, even if they were often opposed because coming from the same Draft… and exchanged one against the other.

“We talk to each other, yes. We talk during the off-season, but also throughout the season. There are just a lot of things that people from the outside wanted to create from scratch, to oppose us and make believe that we hated each other, but this is not the case between Luka and me. Honestly, he’s a great guy. We play against each other, and we fight. Obviously, I’m trying to help my team win, and he’s trying to do the same.”he recalled. “But when we play against each other, it’s always a battle and there’s always competition. But other than that, it’s never personal, and we always want the best for each other outside of the times when we face each other. So we have a great relationship.”
