Hawks’ Trae Young burns Bow Wow using savage ‘Like Mike’ reference


There have only been two people ever who could say they could play Like Mike. One is the man who brought six titles to Chicago, Michael Jordan. The other is the rapper formerly known as Lil’ Bow Wow. Apparently, Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young hasn’t seen Like Mike the movie. Else, he’d be a lot warier challenging the man who played Calvin Cambridge to a shooting contest.

Bow Wow posted a video on Twitter where he challenged Trae Young to a three-point shooting competition. The Hawks star is known for his long-range bombs from well beyond the arc. But the rapper apparently wants to go deeper than that. Much, much deeper.

The challenge is for ten shots apiece, taken at a distance of 30 or 40 feet away from the hoop.

“We’ll go where your range at,” Young said upon hearing the challenge.

“30 or 40. I want 30 or 40,” Bow Wow said right back.

Trae Young’s Hawks aren’t going to be going to Orlando for the NBA’s return via the bubble games, so the man’s got nothing but time for any crazy shooting contest a celebrity is challenging him too. That’s unless the 2nd bubble actually pushes through.

We just have to make sure there are cameras when they get to shooting. NBA fans have been starving for some live-content and a non-league sanctioned event might be a little less-PG and a little more creative with the trash talking.

I don’t know about you guys, but my money’s on Calvin Cambridge. Just make sure he has his shoes back.
