Following the win against Chicago Bulls on Sunday, 11 December, the Atlanta Hawks’ star, Trae Young was fined a whooping charge of $25,000.
With the charges against him, Trae expressed his disappointment.
But with a net worth of $6 Million, the fine does not seem to impact the NBA player financially.
Let’s take an insight into the reason for how the situation occurred.
Trae Young was fined because of his antics during the game
The reason behind the fine on Trae is quite simple and clear. During the game when the Hawks’ were at 122-12, Trae went for the winning shot. After the game ended with the buzzer, Trae who was standing just below the basket caught the ball in the air and then threw it at the stands.
However, for many people, the incident can be just a faultless action with no intention to hurt.
With the incident taking place, memes started to explode on Twitter.
Trae Young is at the scorer’s table, so he appears to be fine.

But despite the 123–122 win against Chicago Bulls and the incident happening, the celebrations were quite less among the players.
Some interesting facts about Trae Young
Born on 19 September 1998, in Texas, Trae Young is the son of Rayford Young who played basketball at Texas Tech. He also has an uncle who was also a basketball player.
Known popularly as the Ice Cold Villain of the NBA, Trae’s career took off to great heights after his draft to Atlanta Hawks’. His career took off in 2018 with Dallas Mavericks and then landed with Atlanta Hawks.
Talking about his career, his tactics and way of playing have been quite unpredictable. He is quite a dominant player on the court and got the title of the NBA All-Star twice.
According to the sources, the point forward of the Hawks’ has grown up as a fan of Steve Nash.
“My favorite player of all time is Steve Nash”. In an interview with ESPN, Trae Young talks in detail about his comments on Steve Nash.
With players getting fined for such reasons, the players need to be quite careful and attentive to their actions whenever they are on the court, especially at the end of the game.
