These are not good "motivational tactics"

• Giving a player $1 for each point scored.

• Taking away phone or laptop for the night if they don't score at least 10 points.

• Completing a player's homework if they play well.

And now, we can add a new one:

• Forcing a player to run 1 mile for every point scored under 15 per game.

It should go without saying...

Using these kind of "motivational tactics" in an attempt to make a kid play better will never work. Instead, a player under this much pressure will become a terrible teammate, they'll get benched by the coach for throwing up wild shots, and they'll quickly develop a hatred for the sport.
