Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks faced a financial setback following his last game on Wednesday. The NBA imposed a $25,000 fine on Young for “confronting and directing inappropriate language toward a game official” during the Hawks’ defeat to the Brooklyn Nets.

Throughout the game, Young expressed frustration multiple times, believing that the official failed to make necessary calls. This discontent culminated in the final play, where Young, convinced he was fouled while attempting a potential game-winning shot, immediately engaged with the officials, expressing his dissatisfaction with the absence of a call on the would-be buzzer-beater.
