Fans React After The NBA Suspends Draymond Green

On Tuesday, a fracas broke out early in a contest between the Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves, and during the incident, Draymond Green put Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert in a headlock.

Green was ejected as a result, and on Wednesday, the NBA responded by suspending him for five games.

If five games seems like a harsh sentence for merely putting an opposing player in a headlock, the league said it levied a five-game sentence because of all the past antics Green has gotten involved in.

As a matter of fact, plenty of fans feel Green should’ve been given an even heavier sentence.

Just months ago, Green stomped on Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis during a playoff game and was ejected, then suspended for one game.

Perhaps his most noteworthy incident came in Game 4 of the 2016 NBA Finals when he appeared to hit LeBron James in the groin and was suspended for Game 5 as a result.

James’ Cleveland Cavaliers easily won Game 5 as a result, and it proved to be the impetus behind them overcoming a 3-1 series deficit to win their first-ever world championship.

Green is a truly unique player, and he is the heart and soul of the Warriors’ dynasty, but these periodic incidents have hurt the team because of the ejections and suspensions that have resulted.

The team is already without Stephen Curry, who is out with a knee ailment, and given that the team is on a four-game losing streak, Green’s latest act of indiscretion has come at a bad time.
