What Do You Do When You Avoid Suspension For Kicking Someone In The Dick? Kick Someone In The Face.
What sensei do you think Draymond Green learned his post game under? That's the point that we have gotten to with him. I have no choice but to believe he enrolled in some weird karate/basketball hybrid class in his youth. I know I went to an 'All Sports' camp as a kid. They didn't teach me to incorporate jump kicks into jump hook, but they certainly broadened my athletic horizons. Maybe the same can be said for Draymond Green. Maybe there's some old Mr. Miyagi type dude living in Michigan teaching college basketball hopefuls how to incorporate the disciplines of judo into their offensive game.
Seriously though, this is the problem with not giving Draymond Green a substantial punishment for kicking a guy squarely in the dick. He learned absolutely nothing from the uncertainty surrounding his playing status in Game 4. You would think someone would watch their feet after narrowly escaping suspension in a pivotal Conference Finals matchup, and what does Draymond do? Doubles down by managing - albeit impressively - to kick a guy upside the head while releasing a right handed floater. I honestly don't even know how that is possible. What I do know is that it's not necessary. You can argue that he didn't mean to hit a guy in his precious love-sac just as you can argue that he didn't mean to hit a guy across the jaw. You absolutely can't argue that BOTH times he meant to kick someone in hopes of drawing a foul. By failing to make him sit out a game the NBA basically okayed the use of flailing and flopping and Draymond Green has taken full advantage. Dude is playing with fire, and the NBA better be mighty close to burning him or else they run the risk of making themselves looks stupider than they did when they waited 24 hours to make a ruling on a blatant shot to an opponent's cock. I love what he brings to the basketball court, but you can't let him run around doing and saying whatever the fuck he wants - no matter how important he is to the playoffs.
