The NFL’s fine system received a lot of flak this past week for its heavy handed approach, but the league is still getting results. The recent penalties show that it can be tough to change anything about what has worked in the past
Kyle Busch is a NASCAR driver and he said that he is just here so he doesn’t get fined.
Trae Young is a professional basketball player. of the Atlanta Hawks has had a season of transition. He’s had to adjust to new NBA rules prohibiting players from slamming into opponents in order to draw contact and get to the foul line. Young is a master at it, but the league has been cracking down on calling defensive fouls when the offensive player goes out of his way to instigate contact this year. Young skirted around the question after his team’s defeat to the Washington Wizards on Thursday, keeping his pocketbook account in mind.
Trae Young continues to impress as a productive scorer.

Young has continued to light up the scoreboard despite the NBA’s tougher stance on offensive players earning fouls. With 24.2 points per game through five games this season, the 2020 NBA All-Star is on track to match his career scoring average of 24.1 points.
The issue has been his method of obtaining those points.
Young attempted 8.7 free throws per game a year ago. He had 9.3 attempts the year before. He’s only been to the line 4.4 times this year.
To a degree, Young said he understood why the league took action.
According to Yahoo! Sports, he remarked, “Veering back and diving into people — that’s different.” “I agree with some of the rule adjustments, but there are still certain things that are fouls, and players are going to be injured.” They use their bodies, their legs, and their hands to stop me, especially a tiny person like me who is up against larger and stronger defenders.”
Trae Young was enraged by the shift, but he had money on his mind.
The Hawks were defeated 122-111 by the Wizards. Young was one of five players to get a technical foul in the game. He scored 15 points and was 2-for-3 from the free throw line. He was plainly frustrated by not receiving the calls he had previously received in his career, but he was cautious with his statements.
“I don’t want to get overly penalized, but it’s annoying.”
He went on to say, “There are a lot of missed calls.” ”It’s a basketball game. It’s simply that they seem to be learning, and they’re just… I’m not sure. It’s aggravating.”
This season, Young has made almost 96 percent of his free throws. He’s hit 86 percent of his foul shots throughout his career. Getting to the finish line is a near-automatic point earner, but that advantage has been taken away from him.
Young has made it clear that he is not alone.

Young was expected to be one of the players most impacted by the new regulation when it was implemented this year. It’s had an effect on him, but he’s not the only one.
The shift has affected James Harden of the Brooklyn Nets. Harden has attempted 8.7 free throws on average during his career. He’s gone three times per game in his five games this season. Harden’s scoring average has also dropped. He’s averaging 16.6 points this season, which is his lowest total since his third season in the league.
“I saw James say it’s about him,” Young said, “but it’s not just one or two guys.”
Young then went on to list a couple more people to support his claim.
“Damian Lillard hasn’t averaged 17 points since he was a rookie,” Young remarked. “There’s a pair of men,” says the narrator. I mean, (Devin Booker) averages 18 points a game. When men are driving straight and being thrown off balance, it’s still a foul, regardless of whether they’re utilizing their lower body or their hands.”
Young is definitely furious, but he seems to have dialed it down a notch to protect his money account.
