if he has another game like that i’m dropping him for montrezl harrell 

Amazing Kid....?

Outside of turnovers and a lack of points the last game, I don’t understand why no one is going crazy for this kid right now.

 

tonights game against the heat shows what he is capable of and I think he finds his groove more when he starts distributing the ball early.

 

tonights line is crazy good, 2 3s 24 points 6 rebounds 15 assists and 1 block, with good percentages. I’ll take his turnovers for lines like these

what’s really impressed me thus far is his court vision 

And ability to actually find people on the money too. He's slick. Love his demeanour and confidence. I accidentally took him over Collison in the 11th round of my draft and I'm actually find he's more fun to own. I'll take the TOs since I'm punting it anyways (I own Westbrook too)

Because if there is hype for trae it’ll be harder to give luka rookie of the year which is what the media wants to happen...

 

meanwhile trae and ayton are kicking just as much a$$

He’s drastically better than I thought and he has all the opportunity in the world which is usually a winning combination.  The problem with him in fantasy isn’t just that he’s a punt FG/TO player.  It’s also that he contributes almost nothing in stocks and rebounds.  He’s basically a three cat player (points, assists, threes) plus good FT.  He may improve his steals but given his size and college profile I don’t think he’s going to improve much in rebounds or blocks.  He’s like a hybird between Curry and Calderon; some of the offensive ability of curry, the passing and ****ful defense of Calderon.  That’s not insult.  He’s been better than I thought and puts up useful stats, you just have to work around his weaknesses.

So true. It seems if Doncic has a big game, media all over him. I didn't believe in Trae, and felt Dallas robbed Hawks in that deal, but Trae is really ballin. Even in games where his shot isn't working, he is still making great and fancy passes. Very entertaining to watch

As a Trae, Luka and Ayton owner I say split it thirdsies!

 

When Trae corrects the TOs...o ...my...word...kid has handles too and eyes on all four sides...can't wait for the lines he'll post by February!

watched the game vs the hornets today and I am really impressed by this dude. He didn't hit a 3, but we all know that's the one thing that he can bring to your team just off night. But the court awareness the vision, he makes very good passes. He threads the needle with some of his inside bullet passes to his bigs. This guy has no business getting double digit assists in this very bad Hawks team, but he is because of precise quick passes. He could've easily had 15 assists again today because he had many good dishes to open look on 3s to different players but they kept missing.

 

I also thought this guy would never be able to finish at the rim in the pros, but he was taking it hard to the hoop today and finishing with good lay-ups. Hornets bigs are not intimidating, but still. 

 

This guy is for real fellas. He can dish, drive, unlimited range, maybe the Steph Curry comparisons are not that far off.

 

Concerning his AST...I hope he could give 2/3 more when John Collins will be back.
