Video: Stephen Curry, Trae Young talk courtside before Game 5

Trae Young and Stephen Curry

Oracle Arena is a packed house tonight for Game 5 to see whether the defending champion Golden State Warriors can close out their Western Conference Semifinals matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans. One of those people in attendance is none other than former Oklahoma Sooners star point guard and a projected top-10 selection in the 2018 NBA Draft, Trae Young.

A little over an hour before tipoff between Golden State and New Orleans, Young met courtside with Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry.

The two shook hands and shared a few words with one another, as captured by this video that was kindly uploaded to Twitter by the official NBA account. Young also posted a photo of himself and Curry to his personal Twitter page.

Young was an absolute stud with the numbers he put up during his freshman year this past season at the University of Oklahoma, but his team really flamed out towards the end of the season and finished just 8-10 in Big 12 conference play and 18-14 overall.

However, Young was still by far one of college basketball’s most exciting players to watch and averaged a whopping 27.4 points on 42.2 percent shooting, 8.7 assists, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.7 steals per game in roughly 35.4 minutes of action.

How high in the 2018 NBA Draft will Young be selected? He could certainly be a top-five pick, as the expectations for him are already through the roof.
