Another Draymond Green Suspension? 🤔

I will admit that this latest incident with Patty Mills wouldn’t be among [Green’s] greatest hits…

For anybody who thought that Draymond Green had changed since being suspended and had to undergo counseling, I’m here to tell you that isn’t the case. We all know that Green is a ticking time bomb any time he steps on the court for NBA games but the league doesn’t seem to care.

In last night’s Warriors game, Green decided to grab Heat guard Patty Mills around the neck and bring him back toward him. The worst is that he was only assessed a personal foul and avoided a flagrant. On replay, he clearly deserved a flagrant but he might not be able to avoid the NBA.

 

Will Draymond Green Get Suspended Again?

Draymond Green has been the subject of a lot of bad NBA news over the years and the league is clearly getting fed up with it. The last Draymond Green suspension was supposed to set him straight but he’s clearly up to the same antics.

Now, I will admit that this latest incident with Patty Mills wouldn’t be among his greatest hits. If it was another player, we would’ve just given them a flagrant foul and moved on. Basketball is a quick game and violent things can happen.


However, we have to take into account Green’s history. He’s constantly making dirty plays and it seems to just be part of his game now. He probably wasn’t even trying to foul Mills but just can’t control himself. The Warriors really can’t afford to lose him right now.

They are in a tight battle for the 10th seed in the Western Conference and are only one game up on the Houston Rockets. Draymond Green’s stats aren’t great this season but he’s clearly an important member of the team. Losing him to another suspension could really hurt their chances of even reaching the play-in tournament.

I don’t really know how he’ll avoid some kind of suspension. This incident wasn’t nearly as bad as him choking out Rudy Gobert or clubbing Jusuf Nurkic but it’s still another issue with him potentially hurting players. It will be very interesting to see what the NBA does.


Do they escalate his punishments and suspend him for the rest of the season? Do they just give him a slap on the wrist considering Mills is fine? Regardless, this is not the kind of drama the Warriors want to deal with right now.
