Because you have to compare like behavior for it to hold value. Is it possible some guards drive hard to the basket more than others (those that do are more likely to be fouled). Is it not possible for a player to be in control of the ball more than others would likely be fouled more than those who possess it less? Trae shoulders the ball more than a lot of players thus it is different. For the stat to hold weight you need other players doing the very same thing to make a fair assessment who is gaining favor by the refs and who is not.
