The Atlanta Hawks were able to sneak into the playoffs as the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference.
Unfortunately, they have to face the Boston Celtics in the first round.
So far the series has gone as most people expected, in favor of the Celtics.
Boston leads 2-0 and has two blowout victories.
One of the problems for the Hawks so far is that Trae Young has not played up to his potential.
In the first two games, Young is averaging 20 points and 7 assists but his 5 turnovers are a major problem.
Also, Young is shooting the ball poorly from the field.
He has a 35.0% field goal percentage and a 23.1% three-point percentage.
After being seen as a future star in the league during his first year, Young has worn out his welcome with many people.
Skip Bayless even went out and called Young “overrated”.
Trae Young has always been so overrated. Now on @undisputed

Young has always been a high-usage, low-efficiency player, and that rarely equates to winning.
Many people seem to agree with Bayless’ statement.

Yet, there are still a few fans who think Young is a good player.
That this playoff series against one of the top teams in the NBA should not define him.
But, like most stars, you are graded on how you play in the playoffs.
He’s playing with a terrible offensive team and is playing agaisnt the best defense in the league chill

Bayless has been known for many “hot takes” and one fan thinks this may be his worst yet.
This might be your worst take ever

Young and the Hawks now head home for two home games.
He will need to play much better if the Hawks want to keep their season alive.NEXT: Trae Young Gave His Honest Opinion On Game 2 Performance
