Atlanta Hawks: Trae Young is a case study for new NBA rule changes



Article Summary:

Young has even spoken out about these rules, and he cited Booker in doing so.

“You can watch basketball. Damian Lillard’s never averaged 17 points probably since his rookie year. There’s a couple guys. I mean, Book’s averaging 18. There’s a lot of things that, when guys are driving straight and guys are getting knocked off balance – it’s still a foul, whether they’re using their lower body or their hands” – Trae Young

Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young is the perfect case study for the new NBA rule changes

Young was one of the players last year who seemingly abused the league’s rules in order to get to the line.

The initial effects of the rule changes can be seen through some of Young’s stats.

His percentages have dropped from 43.8 percent from the field and 34.3 percent from deep last year to 40.8 percent from the field and 27.9 percent from deep this year.
