Hawks video: Trae Young makes little brother do pushups after beating him in shooting competition
Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young is a rising star in the NBA, but he won’t ever forget his responsibility of being an older brother.
After hitting a shot from the Hawks’ bench, Young made sure his younger brother paid the price by doing some pushups for everyone to see:
Big bro wins, little bro loses… do your pushups!

Young hasn’t had a lot to smile about this season. The Hawks have the worst record in the NBA, so it’s good to see Young having some fun with his younger brother.
In 39 games this season entering Monday’s contest against the Toronto Raptors, Young is averaging 28.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 8.5 assists. He’s shooting 44.5 percent from the field, 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 83.8 percent from the free-throw line. Young recorded his 14th double-double in the first half against Toronto.
The Hawks were one of the teams who were talking with the Detroit Pistons about an Andre Drummond trade, but those talks have ended. However, the Hawks could still pursue a Steven Adams trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Atlanta is desperate to upgrade its center position and get more talent around Young.
Young has been invited to participate in the 3-Point Contest and Skills Challenge during All-Star Weekend. The Hawks would certainly love to have Young represent the franchise in Chicago during All-Star Weekend in what has been a dreadful season.
All signs point toward Trae Young making his first All-Star team as well. He’s first in fan voting for Eastern Conference guards.
