Following the announcement of the reserves, an X user dropped a post, sharing Young’s impeccable record this season, and asked a question at the league. It read, “Why does Trae Young CONTINUE to be DISRESPECTED?”

In response, LeBron James pitched in and said, “He be cooking EVERY NIGHT! Stop it! He’s an All-Star for sure. Something is REAL [Fishy].” He didn’t exactly use the word ‘Fishy’ instead opted for a ‘fish’ emoji followed by the letter ‘E’.
Trae Young‘s All-Star snub has been the talk of the NBA town for the last few hours. In this season, the Hawks star has registered 27.1 PPG and 11 assists per game, which is significantly higher than some of the reserves. For instance, he holds a better PPG and APG than Julius Randle and Tyrese Maxey.
25-year-old even expressed his displeasure through an IG post after his thunderous performance against the Phoenix Suns. Young dropped 32 points with 15 assists to clinch a comfortable 129-120 victory over the Suns.
Following the game, he took to his IG handle. He shared a picture of himself from tonight’s game and wrote, “Born a Star, still a Star.. Always will be a Star #wemove,” in the caption.

As the trade deadline is only a week away, the Lakers have been on the forefront to pull off a trade. Notably, the LA side has been constantly in trade talks with the Hawks for Dejounte Murray.
Even though the team couldn’t come down to a negotiation, the reports suggested that the teams could go back to the deal a few days before the deadline.
Amid this situation, King James’ recent social media activity may hint something. Is he trying to lure the Hawks’ leader into the Lakers roster? This is a speculative view, but we will have to wait till 8th of February to know the exact outcome of the Lakers-Hawks trade talk.
