He used his nutmeg skills first against James Harden of Houston Rockets during this year NBA All-Star game and then against Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James during Hawks vs Lakers regular-season game.
Trae Young nutmegs LeBron James video had gone viral way back in February last year when Hawks faced Lakers at home. The Hawks point guard executed the pick-and-roll play to perfection. In the clip which was posted by Bleacher Report, Young slipped in a pass between the LeBron James legs, but his teammate Omari Spellman wasn’t able to finish the play. However, that was called as a blocking foul by the referee.

Lakers win-loss record for the 2019-20 season stood at 49-14. The record also helped them become the first team from the Western Conference to clinch a place in this year's playoffs. Despite qualifying, Lakers season have been put on hold after NBA.

He even added that the first three months have been rough and asked everyone to stay safe.
