Several days ago, AJ Griffin won the game with a turnaround mid-air jumper for the Atlanta Hawks against the Chicago Bulls. Following the game, Hawks superstar Trae Young was fined $25,000 for his behavior after the final buzzer.

When the final horn sounded, Young took the game-winning ball and heaved it into the crowd in pure joy. The NBA deemed it to be an unsportsmanlike act and issued a fine for the star guard.

When he found out about it, Trae took to Twitter to express his emotions.

"Sorry to the Hawks fan(s) who got a chance to touch the game-winning ball. Didn’t know I couldn’t do that," Young tweeted. "Can’t celebrate s**t anymore."
