Draymond Ejected After STEPPING On Sabonis 😳

“My leg got grabbed—the second time in two nights—and the referee is just watching,” Green said. “I got to land my foot somewhere, and I’m not the most flexible person, so it’s not stretching that far. I can only step so far with someone pulling my leg away.”


Sure, this elite level, championship athlete has so little control over his body that he couldn’t help it when he STOMPED ON A GUY’S CHEST! Here’s the thing: Somehow Draymond keeps finding himself in these situations where the only way he can possibly defend himself from other players is to kick them in the groin or stomp on their chest. Moments like these lead to him not being available when his team needs him most. Whatever you think of him, Draymond is a leader and a central piece of their defense, something they definitely needed in the last seven minutes of that game.

Green is in his 11th season, meaning he’s closer to the end of his career than the beginning, The Golden State Warriors have to start wondering if his contributions are worth putting up with all the shenanigans. I understand that helping a franchise win four championships buys you a certain amount of leeway, but let’s not forget that the season started with him punching teammate Jordan Poole during practice, causing a ridiculous amount of controversy. Now he’s in a position where he might be suspended for Game 3 of this series, making things even harder for his team.


Head coach Steve Kerr and Green’s Warriors teammates may be publicly supportive, but you can’t tell me that privately there isn’t some exhaustion with his antics. In this particular instance, Sabonis definitely grabbed him, which is why he also received a technical foul. However, the reason Sacramento has been all over him in these first two games is because we all know Draymond’s reputation, so the Kings know if they rile him up enough, they can get him to make a costly mistake, which is exactly what happened. As a four-time champion, Draymond Green needs to play smarter, put his team first and avoid this nonsense. They need you on the court playing defense more than they need you firing them up and playing a wrestling heel for the opposing team’s fans.
