YOUNG HOLLYWOOD ROOKIE ON THE RISE SERIES
Rookie On The Rise
Season two of Young Hollywood original docu-series “Rookie On The Rise” to feature Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young
Premieres Wednesday, November 14 on Young Hollywood
Trae Young was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks with the 5th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, and subsequently traded to Atlanta. Here are just some of the young champions record breaking stats:
Trae Young played college basketball for the Oklahoma Sooners, where in 2017, he tied the NCAA single-game record with 22 assists. By the end of his college run, Young was the first and only player to ever lead the NCAA in both points and assists in a single game.
In his rookie year with the Atlanta Hawks, Trae put up the biggest numbers by a first-year player since Warriors star Stephen Curry in 2010. Young, who went 13 of 23 from the floor, finished with 35 points to go with 11 assists, becoming one of 11 rookies to achieve the impressive stat line. Others to accomplished the feat include LeBron James, Jason Kidd, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson and Jerry West.
Now, the young rookie is taking aim at the NBA’s single-game 3-point record. Young believes he can hit more than 14 three-pointers in a game, a mark held by Klay Thompson.
As you may recall, season one of “Rookie on The Rise” premiered earlier this year, and followed Utah Jazz sensation Donovan Mitchell.
“Rookie On The Rise” will feature Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young. Each 2-5 minute episode will showcase behind-the-scenes moments with Young following his rise to national stardom, interactions with family and friends, and more.
