I would bench him for Iggy and start Mo Buckets as our stretch 4. This strategy will clear the lanes for our backcourt duo to cut thru the middle with timely passes from Bogut at the middle of the key and if the lane collapses quickly, we kick it out to Mo Buckets at the top of the key on the switch or Iggy at the wing for the open 3 :nod:.

I so need to be an associate coach for this team :nod:

NBA is so rigged man. He should have been suspended against OKC but wasn't because the Warriors were losing the series. Now that the Warriors are up 3-1, they suspend Green for something not nearly as bad.

Don't know why I even bother with this sport when they make it so obvious that they only care about the storyline.

Of course this was going to happen guys, they're playing LeBron, the NBA is going to do their best to make sure LeBron wins the championship.

Really? I know he can't be on the floor, but he's not allowed to be in the locker room? That's nuts that he could miss winning a title for phantom contact so slight nobody including the refs noticed.

I was a LeBron fan, but he had to lie to get Green suspended so add lying to the reasons to hate him.

Dude has had it coming. He should know everything he does be magnified. The fact that it happened to LeBron is what probably sealed it.

Had he done it to Tristan Thompson or Frye or someone, it probably goes unpunished again. The kick to Adams pretty much showed that + they were down in the series . (which I thought was much worse)

he got a flagrant 2 for his kick.
reason hes getting suspended is because he accumulated 4 flagrant fouls over the course of the playoffs, every flagrant after 4 will result in suspension. this was long time coming league did the right thing. i hope this costs the warriors the chip.

06-12-2016, 02:59 PM
There's so much irony in this one decision it's hard to keep track.

1) James instigating Green by stepping across him is undeniably LeBron's single biggest contribution to winning the series. Total punk move from a guy who then turned around and hid behind his family.

2) Green is a moron for falling for it, particularly after having had so many warnings. Idiot.

3) In retrospect, it's now clear that Green should have been suspended for the groin kick to Adams, which might very well have tipped the series in OKC's favor. Sorry OKC!

4) Because the NBA didn't have the balls to suspend Green earlier for a truly egregious act, they now look like total ******* for suspending Green for this trivial act.

But the best part? Gotta hope that GS beats the Cavs on Monday even shorthanded. (And I would still give them the edge, because Iggy is as good or better than Green against LeBron.)

Makes sense honestly. Just another retroactive flagrant and because it was 2 total it was the auto-suspension (I assume). There's really nothing completely BS about either the Adams decision or this one, although this was definitely on the very-weak side of suspension worthy, it was sort of a cumulative thing. Shame he can't keep his head on straight in situations like that, he shouldn't have been in a situation to make this happen. The way the Warriors are constructed Draymond is CRUCIAL to the lineup. There's no death lineup without him, and it means a lot more Mo Speights time (which is bad). This is setting the stage for a possible game 7 (which the Warriors will win).

Green is contributing 15, 9 and 6 per game this series.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/playoffs/2016-nba-finals-cavaliers-vs-warriors.html

Iggy is 10, 5 and 4 on six minutes less per game.

Yes, Green is good defensively, but so is Iggy, particularly on LeBron. And Green has 1.8 TO per game compared with Iggy's 0.5.

Good luck to the Cavs! :p

We can't pretend to know that was on purpose. I was a .gif of him doing similar kicks trying to draw contact dozens upon dozens of times after that happened. Originally I was positive it was on purpose, then I realized it was a lot less obvious what happened. I think he tried to flail at him, but not actually hit his nuts. Anyway, past is the past. I'm fine with this suspension. Gives the haters even less room to talk their nonsense concerning this team.

they ignored the kick to extend the OKC series. GS was going to lose if Draymond was suspended like he should have been under todays rules. Now they're suspending him for nothing... to extend the series.

if we learned anything from 2002 it's that the league doesn't care who wins, they just want a long series for the television money.

this has nothing to do with basketball, if it did they would have suspended him the first time.

They got Green since they screwed up the Adams field goal kick to the groin, but Cleveland still has no chance to win tomorrow so it's a moot point now. There's no way GS is losing tomorrow night
Then why show up if there's no way to win? Anything can happen in sports...trust me on this :nod:.

We can't pretend to know that was on purpose. I was a .gif of him doing similar kicks trying to draw contact dozens upon dozens of times after that happened. Originally I was positive it was on purpose, then I realized it was a lot less obvious what happened. I think he tried to flail at him, but not actually hit his nuts. Anyway, past is the past. I'm fine with this suspension. Gives the haters even less room to talk their nonsense concerning this team.

x2. I initially ripped into green too, but then I started seeing that he always makes that flail move when he takes contact. The flail was on purpose, there's no good reason to think he actually hit his junk on purpose

NBA: Draymond Green suspended for Game 5.

For WHAT? :confused:

What did he do to get suspended? Seriously. Stand up for himself when Lebron was trying to bully him towards the end of the game?

This is BS. The league is a joke.

they ignored the kick to extend the OKC series. GS was going to lose if Draymond was suspended like he should have been under todays rules. Now they're suspending him for nothing... to extend the series.

if we learned anything from 2002 it's that the league doesn't care who wins, they just want a long series for the television money.

this has nothing to do with basketball, if it did they would have suspended him the first time.

Green getting suspended in the okc series would have had zero impact on the series. GS lost game 4...

If you look at events in a purely linear fashion, maybe that's true.

But events don't unfold in a linear fashion. Once you change one variable you don't know how everything else plays out. You can guess, but you don't know.

If Green misses Game 4 against OKC still wins, maybe Green overcompensates in Game 5. It was an advantage to GS to have Green on the court in the Game 4 loss, because he experienced the loss as a player. That also helped the coaching staff determine where the problems were, because they didn't have to wonder if Green being out was a big part of the reason why they lost.

I'm not saying OKC would have won for sure, but that would have been a big chance, and it's not clear how Green himself would have handled it. What I am saying is that the NBA boxed themselves into this corner now because they didn't suspend Green when they should have.

OKC winning game 4 has nothing to do with the intention behind the leagues decision to not suspend.

To me your line of thinking is not very different from those who still think the draft lottery is rigged. If all you're doing is looking for holes, you'll find them. I don't think they wanted to suspend Draymond, I think they felt like their hand was being forced by him.

i don't like the comparison. what financial benefit comes with rigging a lottery? it's abstract at best, maybe a big prospect becomes a great player and avoids all injury for a decade in a big market that can cash in?

in the extension of a 7 games series, the payout is more direct. the only reason why the league is in such a kushy place is because of this mammoth TV deal. would it be ideal or not ideal for the WCF and NBA finals to be game five games each the season before that contract kicks in?

This series has been big with ratings, this bodes well for future bids. JUst because it's locked in doesn't mean there isn't potential money to be made.

Yeah, he can flail all he wants (although technically it's flopping and since the NBA has already deemed it as flopping then he should get fined for flopping every time) but as soon as his leg cones in contact with a head, crotch or honestly any body part then he should be hit with a flagrant 2. He'll stop doing that ******** real quick.

And a $500 fine for anyone showing up when they're banned from the arena? That's like giving us regular dudes a $2 fine for speeding; it's just not a deterrent so why even make them banned? Just don't let them play or even sit with their teammates.

Didn't face the Clips, didn't face the Spurs, Thunder collapsed, NBA on their side, Cavs ... uhh ... Cavs ... uhh ... needed another year to learn to play under Lue?


the Warriors title or possibly back to back would be just as legit as any in any era

people say Russell won because of it being easier and only having like 8 or 9 teams back then and his team was super stacked

Magic won because the West as a whole wasn't as strong as what Bird/DrJ/Zeke had to face to get there and they wore each other out, reason why Magic was 5-4 in finals, could have been 4-5 if Thomas doesn't basically break his ankle

Jordan won because all of those previous mentioned dynasty stacked teams faded away and they hit the league with expansion teams on both of his 3peats to water it down even more

so its safe to say the Warriors are just doing what they do, beat whoever is in front and take it in stride

also off topic that pic you have of Kobe eliminating 50 win teams go look at how many times he was on a 50+ win team, he had the better 50 win team for the most part, which isn't really that impressive unless I am wrong and he played on 7-8th seeds for pretty much all his career

Refs should have called a double tech in the first place, which is what I believed should have been called based on recent history.

But I disagree that LeBron instigated it. I think you should be allowed to step over a player so long as there is no actual contact and it was somewhat necessary (IE: player was legitimately in the path). And I believe that should be so even if there is a possible "intimidation" factor to it like in this case (and the famous Iverson step over). But LeBron did escalate it and prolong it and deserved the tech.

Green swiped twice at LeBron and lightly connected on one, which is basically a "push" in my view and he also deserved a tech. I don't understand the flagrant call, but I believe its necessary karma.

This is just a make-up call. They probably should have suspended him last time and missed the boat. So they made sure to get him now. The guy has to keep his legs and arms to himself though. But it seems like he can't help himself

This.. nothing else needs to be said.... makeup call... it was a nut shot and again deserved but this wasnt worse than the kick

NBA is so rigged man. He should have been suspended against OKC but wasn't because the Warriors were losing the series. Now that the Warriors are up 3-1, they suspend Green for something not nearly as bad.

Don't know why I even bother with this sport when they make it so obvious that they only care about the storyline.

Lebron this year was going for the ball and that was clear as day... green was going for the nuts.... just stop... this is the type of logic that is clearly just trolling. Post on your real account pls.

Suspension or not the fact that he can not attend the game is what I have a problem with. If he attends the game he is fined 140k. Should be allowed to celebrate after an possible win.

if he wasnt dirty he wouldnt be in this position... ****ing deserves it.

Semantics. Whether they called the technical/flagrant during the game or the day after, Green would have hit the cap on the flagrant point system during the playoffs. A blatant pattern has developed.

This is a situation where a guy has continuously been a dick. Undebatable. He flexes, snarls, screams, and stares at opponents on every play like he's some sort of street fighter. When in reality, he quite literally just goes around sack-tapping people.

The Warriors will most likely emerge victorious in the finals - so Green should just use this as an apparatus for humbling oneself. He's a fantastic all-around player, and a wildly versatile defender - but dude, stop flexing and flailing all the time. It's super awkward.

As for the conspiracy theories, *yawn*.

Exactly, the dude hit someone in the nuts for the 3rd time and was finally punished. People are seriously confused as to why LeBron didn't get a flagrant and it's baffling. Green hit him in the ****ing nuts, LeBron didn't hit him in the nuts. It's really that simple.

He was upset at LeBron for stepping over him so he swung his arm in anger. Both players were in the wrong but If he wasnt going to be suspended for the kick on Adams, then why now? These types of altercations happen over the course of the yr without any suspensions or warnings. The NBA really blew it here.

BS... James threw him to the ground the walked over him. I agree his arm was thrown out in anger, but the James kept coming at him while Green walked away. Then James goes on to complain about the no call fouls. What a crybaby.

Losing to the Warriors for the second year in a row sucks, but losing to them with no Green really shows that James should stick to complaining and flopping rather than building a team. As much motivation was seen at the end of game 4, I feel felt has now been thrown on the fire... Go Warriors

What?

So when another player pushes or takes a swing at another player it's a flagrant? From all history of basketball I've been watching it's a technical or double technical. A flagrant is usually unnecessary/incidental contact in the midst of a "basketball play".

Green took two intentional swipes at him. There was nothing incidental. While I'm okay with the accumulative suspension, I'm not going to understand why it's not a technical. Someone's gotta break that down more clearly because I haven't seen it broken down properly in the articles.

That's a flagrant foul in all the cases.

If Green's kick was a flagrant 2 it makes sense to call this intentional hit as a flagrant 1. Even if a double-technical have been called in game, the NBA would've been looking at this play and pretty sure would've been a flagrant 1.

I think it's the right call. The league probably looked at this as a collection of incidents and this was the last straw. The finals just got a little more interesting.

I could understand this being "the last straw", except that it wasn't even a straw. Green didn't swing at him, and Lebron was at least as responsible for what did happen. Completely bogus call, and a transparent effort by the league to manufacture a 7-game series.

Kobe asked Dwight Howard to just STFU and play, over, and over, and over again. Did he get suspended for that?

I can't believe it. Not suspension worthy at all. Both of them went at it. Both deserved Ts prior to the rebound. It was handled poorly in game. But that kick surely isn't that bad.

Wow. I thought the league wanted the Warriors to win? Does Lebron get nothing out of this? Instigates and continues to instigate with other players after.

Right. This actually makes it look much worse for Lebron when FSW beats them.

First off because he came off as a whiney cheater/bully looking for an advantage from the league office when he practically begged for this suspension during the post game press conference.

Two because Lebron basically tapped and is exposed as not able to dominate physically against Draymind and Igoudala.

Lets just skip over the bad sportsmanship and Lebron's seeming entitlement to foul, elbow, push and knock down Steph and other warriors continously with no calls. Which is a joke. And that Cavs "good defense" is s power goreard fouling/defending Steph in three point land and no foul calls.

On this point, let me mention thst the Stephen A Smith narrative of how the "physical" teams of the "physical" past eras is total bull****. In the past eras and until very recently, if PFs and centers came out to the three point area and tried to guard smaller skill players refs called extremely quick fouls. In fact it was axiomatic that a big was fouling stupidly if he got caught in coverage in the backcourt. Somebody, anybody, show me footage of Isaiah etc being guarded in three point land by PFs. Much less relentlessly hounded beyond the three point line by 6'9" PFs and rough housed out there.

If this us the new normal then we are ALREADY in the era of "the Steph rules." Without a doubt.

But this especially makes Lebron look bad / silly because GSW doesnt even NEED Draymond to run up in that. Igoudalas got Lebron's number and Tristan Thomas is guarding Steph. If Steph and Klay light it up...

I mean ok maybe the league really actually wants a game 6 at all costs. I dont get it. But what you probably get is GSW spotting Cleveland an advantage and wiping the floor with them regardless.

And if GSW was too relaxed or sleepwalking before.... Oooooh NOW you got their attention, NOW you mad them mad. LoL you really want that Lebron? This team won 73 games.

Pretty lame attempt at extending the series from the NBA

Yep. Transparently obvious. You can just see the Lebron tantrums, the agent's pressuring behind the scenes, Lebron whining. Diva diva.

A weak transparent grab by the league and Lebron for what would be a meaningless face saver.

UNLESS the league just giving Steph a chance to shine even more and make the GSW domination and Lebrons transition to heel character more emphatic.

pretty much.

Cavs are just outmatched. I rather them win then GS but Cavs are really outmatched

I think Lebron knew full well what he was doing and he knew draymond's technical foul situation. I think Cleveland's problems start with Lebron.its just like when he went to Miami, you didn't see them running plays,working on late game situations. It was just a bunch of double alley oops and it's the same thing now. No plays just a lot of one on one. The way they play would work against okc. Not golden state.

I get that lebron made a big deal and cried about it, but no matter how I slice it this is on the refs.

It's just bad luck. First, green tries to foul Beasley at the end of a game and does it very blatantly, and it STILL doesn't get called, instead called as a flagrant after the game. And it's ironic that he gets a flagrant for trying to commit and obvious intentional foul because the next round the Spurs get screwed because kawhi doesn't foul blatant enough. So that's one check.

Then, Green hits Adams in the nuts while driving which is like, basically like the Delly iggy play, u gotta have some pretty heavy hater shades on to think it was on purpose. But that gets everyone talking about green hitting someone in the nuts, and what do u know, green kicks Adams in he nuts the next game. Looks like he's just doing his normal foul flail, but this time happens to get Adams right in the junk, and with this nut hitting narrative he gets another flagrant.

Now because all of this has gotten so much attention, he is getting up and shoving lebron off of him, and if u look at the play in real time it's like the first nut shot, obviously not aiming for the guys junk. Matter of fact, according to lebron, green didn't even hit him, but apparently it's enough that with all the talk about the earlier stuff, the league feels they need to send a message.

Really just bad luck. One thing could be up for debate, when he hit Adams the second time, but outside of that there's really not much argument, nothing was intentional, nothing should have warranted a flagrant.

It is what it is, can't do **** about it now. Some bad luck + overreaction of today's sports world gives the cavs a MAJOR advantage. Either way, it's still in this squad to pull out the last win, there's still 15 guys in uniform, next man up. No matter how bad they blew it, Warriors need flush any excuses down the toilet and win on home court

This.

That's a flagrant foul in all the cases.

If Green's kick was a flagrant 2 it makes sense to call this intentional hit as a flagrant 1. Even if a double-technical have been called in game, the NBA would've been looking at this play and pretty sure would've been a flagrant 1.

Let me ask you, does Curry count as an NBA player? As a human?

Howvome Lebron can just elbow him to the shoulder, back and head, can push him to the ground repeatedly, and grab his arm and whip him to the ground? What, because Lebron big and Curry small? Becasue Curry is so goid st scoring its unfair?

If the league can isolate this (incidental) micro aggression by Green days after the game, why cant it dlow motion analyze Lebron's aggressions against Curry? If we going to do a super slo mo 2 day post game analysis looking for intentional contact and flagrants I have a few things to point out

If the league would call the flagrants and suspensions when it is warranted, they wouldn't even be facing this criticism. Nut-hitting, even in boxing, usually means some kind of punishment. Adam Silver just picks and chooses when to apply the suspension, which happens to be when the Cavs are on life support. He failed to call it when the Warriors were in trouble and losing Green would put the Warriors in a serious hole. It just looks bad.

The window for Lebron is almost closed. The NBA needs to stop riding on his bandwagon. These calls are getting really embarassing.

Trash talking is made for the NBA Playoffs. That's how you sell more tickets. Theyre probably worried that kids are watching and a certain amount of profanity was being used.

Kobe asked Dwight Howard to just STFU and play, over, and over, and over again. Did he get suspended for that?

LOL green wasnt given a flagrant for trash talking. nobody other than lebron heard what the two of them were saying to one another. They cant retroactively punish a player for jawing with another player.

Green put himself in this position....so I'm not gonna feel sorry for him any. You've been playing on the edge for the entirety of the playoffs, and this is what you're gonna risk when you play like that, and I like Draymond a lot even understanding why he's unlikeable to many.

That said, you can call LBJ smart for instigating, I also call him a puss for it. I refuse to fully believe that being called a ***** is what really set him off, and to voice that to the media, essentially lobbying for disciplinary action when you're the one who started it all never really sits all that well to me. For once, I'd like the fire starter in these situations to get the harsher punishment. In the end, I might not matter as GSW is still the better team, and they're at home. We'll see.

Enough was enough with Greens antics, this was just the Final straw.

Plus it's 3-1 so the league knows it's not deciding the outcome of the series if GS tricks off this game.

Had the series been tied it would've just been a double tech or maybe nothing at all.

Green deserved a suspension before, but for the Lebron incident? No way! He did nothing wrong, if you're going to suspend Green then Lebron needs to get called for a flagrant too.

Yea Lebron comes off like a whiny ***** here...I'm not one to critique him but it seems he was desperately trying to get Green suspended even after the game.

And it does seem like the league wants to extend the series.

just an odd situation, nothing in the replay would even remotely call for a suspension. If anything I think Lebron was the instigator and aggressor by walking over Green.
