Whether you believe it’s intentional or not, Draymond Green has developed the reputation for kicking other players — often in the extra sensitive crotch area. During a feisty Golden State Warriors game against Western rivals the Los Angeles Clippers, Green was up to his old tricks.
Near the end of the first quarter, Green dove to the ground for a loose ball. When Clippers forward Blake Griffin came over to try and recover it, Green’s leg shot up and made contact (maybe?) with Griffin’s upper arm/shoulder or maybe his ribs.
Draymond gonna Draymond.
It wasn’t the only thing Green was making headlines for on Thursday night, though. First, we was dialing the trash talk up to 11, by digging into Paul Pierce for “chasing a farewell tour” and saying “You thought you was Kobe?” Then, in the third quarter, Green picked up a technical foul and then sounded off on his own coach.
After the game, Green brushed off the incident as a mere heat of the moment thing, and insisted everything was cool between Kerr and himself.
