In an interview with Ernie Johnson, Young explained that the other Hawks players "call him Yoda" because he "has all the knowledge in the world."
Carter, 43, knows the NBA's evolution from a slow, methodical game in the 1990s to the fast-paced, wide-open style of today better than anyone.
Carter's words of wisdom appear to have rubbed off on Young. The second-year point guard was named to his first All-Star Game this season, and he ranks second in the NBA with 9.3 assists per game and is tied with Giannis Antetokounmpo for third in scoring average (29.6).
Given the uncertainty around the rest of the NBA season due to the coronavirus pandemic, there's a chance Carter has played his last game in the NBA. The North Carolina alum told ESPN's Rachel Nichols on The Jump last June he would retire after this season.
