Trae Young against the new rules

The star of the Hawks furious after the defeat against Washington takes it out on the new regulation. “There are too many unspoken fouls – he attacked – it’s frustrating. A small player like me against bigger defenders who use their body and hands to stop him is penalized.”

the new rules introduced this year by the league, according to which if an attacker makes ‘unnatural’ movements to seek contact with the defender he will no longer be rewarded with a foul in favor, Trae Young doesn’t really like them. The Hawks star vented after the defeat with Washington 122-111, in which he scored just 15 points with 6/17 from the field, going only 3 times in the bezel. “There are a lot of unspoken fouls – said Young commenting on the referees of this season start -. It’s basketball, it looks like they’re learning and they’re just … I don’t know. I don’t want to be fined too much, but it’s frustrating“Young had an average of 8.7 free attempts per game last season, while in this season he does not go beyond 4.4 trips to the foul line.

“It’s not just about me and Harden”

Harden no longer goes to the bezel: Nash complains

Young wanted to emphasize that he is not the only one affected by the new regulation. “I heard James Harden to say it’s about him, but it doesn’t hurt just one or two players. Lillard he probably didn’t score 17 points on average even in his rookie year (he scored 19, ed). Booker he’s scoring 18. There are a lot of things wrong. If a player goes straight in and the defender knocks him off balance it is still a foul, whether they use the lower body or the hands. “” There are some things – admitted Young – on which I agree with the changes to the rules, but then there are situations that are still foul, players will get hurt. Mostly a smaller player like me, that faces bigger and stronger defenders who use their body, legs and hands to stop me. “

Kuzma and Kerr in favor

Not everyone thinks like Young though. Kyle Kuzma, his opponent in the match lost against Washington, after the game he tweeted enthusiastically about the new regulation. “The new rules are the best thing the league has done in recent history. Watching the games is very different now, “wrote the former Lakers. The Warriors coach is also in favor of the change. Steve Kerr, although its star Steph Curry could itself be theoretically damaged by the new regulation. “I love what I am seeing – said Kerr – I think the referees are doing a great job. The game now looks more authentic. “
