Trae Young may be surprised to see himself here, but he shouldn’t be. Like most Atlanta-based teams in recent years, the Hawks are used to heartbreak. While the Hawks were a playoff team as recently as the 2016-17 season, the franchise hasn’t appeared in an NBA Finals since 1961 — the second-longest drought in the sport. Making matters worse, Hawk fans will have to live the next 15 or so years knowing that their team could have had Luka Doncic — a budding superstar who they drafted No. 3 Overall in 2018, only to trade him for Young.
