Atlanta Hawks second-year point guard Trae Young wants to be an All-Star this season so his platform becomes bigger.

Young is in first place among Eastern Conference guards in All-Star voting despite the Hawks’ terrible record:

“The more impactful I am on the court, the more I can be off the court,” Trae Young said, via The Athletic. “That’s how I look at it. That’s why I want to be an All-Star. That’s why I want to be one of the best players in the NBA. My platform would get bigger and I will be able to do so much more for my community.”
