NBA stars from Luka Doncic to Damian Lillard have been making short video clips urging fans to practice social distancing and good hand hygiene during the coronavirus outbreak, but Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young took things a step further.


Young replicated the NBA All Star Weekend’s 3-point contest with rolled-up socks taking the place of basketballs, and a waste basket acting as the hoop. A stickler for detail, Young used black socks to represent orange Spalding basketballs, and white ones for the tri-colored balls that are worth two-points each.

With the #TraePointChallenge, you too can get in on the fun even if you are under Shelter at Home rules.


1) Four rows of five rolled socks each are assembled in a semicircle around a waste bucket at a distance of at least 10 feet.

2) Each contestant is given 45 seconds to shoot as many socks as they can into the basket.

3) The last sock shot from each row is worth two points, as is the entire last row (the money rack). All other socks are worth a single point. A perfect round is worth 28 points (6 + 6 + 6 + 10).

4) Subscribe to the Starr Cards channel and share your high score in the YouTube comments section for a chance to win a $30 Amazon gift card. Remember to stay active and keep your socks clean!


From the moment he entered the league, Young has been making a name for himself with seemingly unlimited 3-point range. And while he didn’t find his rhythm in this year’s All-Star Weekend 3-point Contest and was eliminated in the first round, no one doubts he’ll be winning the event in future years.
