The league no longer boosts players by 2 and 3 inches. If you're so informed you should know that.
A walking 30 & 10 isn't easily replaced. The Hawks overachieved 2 years ago in the first place. Trae was always this player, but that was known when he was selected, and he's exceeded most expectations with the effectiveness he shows. He could lead better just as much as the Hawks could build around him better.
Is making sure to downgrade his height to overemphasize his flaws that much better than literally using a particular label?
Beef with current coach/teammates
Previous coach with more success fired for him
Lack of size and lack of desire for significant two way impact
Can be replaced
