Bring young, base of Hawks, after the defeat of his team against the Wizards (122-111), complained about the new rule that penalizes players who previously took a lot of fouls and those who now they point out techniques to them when they try to force them, The defender who commits them leaving rositas many times. “I don’t want to be fined, but it’s frustrating,” said the Atlanta star.
Against the Wizards, Young was one of five players who received a technical foul during the game.. “There are many fouls that are not whistled,” he said. “This is basketball, it’s just that they seem to be learning, I don’t know, but it’s frustrating.”, he added
The new rule for attackers introduced this year penalizes them if the referees interpret that they are not making a natural movement and are looking for contact and the consequent lack. Referees are not supposed to call defensive fouls when that happens, and it is often mentioned that Bring Young and James Harden as two of the players who could be most affected by this rule.
There are many times that, when the boys penetrate and go in a straight line, the defender unbalances them with his body and hands and that is still a lack
Young averaged 8.7 free throws per game last season, and the current one is going only 4.4 to the line. Before the Wizards It was only three times, which surely added to his frustration. “I saw that James (Harden) said it was about him, but it didn’t affect just one or two players.”Young assured.
In fact Young mentioned Damian Lillard and Devin Booker, two other players who are suffering from this new norm.: “You can watch basketball. Damian Lillard never averaged 17 points probably since his rookie year. “, said. “And Book (Booker) has an average of 18. There are many times that, when the boys penetrate and go in a straight line, the defender unbalances them with the body and the hands and that is still a fault “.
Kyle Kuzma and Steve Kerr comply with the norm
But not everyone agrees with that opinion. Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma, he pronounced on Twitter about it: “The changes in the new rules of the sport are the best the league has done in recent history. Watching the game is sooooo different,” he wrote.

The coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr, He also expressed his approval of the changes and said, “I love what I’m seeing. I think the referees are doing a great job. The game has a more authentic feel. “
Young He is not totally against the change, but asks for the fouls that still exist to be called: “Turn around and jump towards the defender, that’s different,” he said. “There are certain things that I agree with in this new standard, but there are things that are still fouls and the players are going to get hurt. Especially a smaller guy like me who faces bigger and stronger defenders and that they are using their body, their legs and their hands to stop me. “
