    That looked a lot worse in real time. Still dirty, but he caught him in the armpit. And the Suns didn't want any of Z-Bo.

    D Booker also did a dirty move, straight hit Vince in the back and gave him a push at the start of the play that's why he threw the elbow. Booker flopped, then got rewarded his own dirty play. But yeah, in real time it looked bad, won't argue against the ejection, but Booker was also dirty twice (first with the punch and push, then the flop) got rewarded that's why he got up straight away smiling.

    I think he got ejected because as he threw the elbow he was laughing about it. I'm sure that didn't help the situation after looking at the replay.

    Weak. Carter was wrong but Booker fell like someone shot him

    No joke. I thought that nailed him the face. It ended up looking like a double-flop of sorts, though Booker did get hit.

    Lol he got fouled twice and was pissed. He elbowed him in the arm, I don't think he was aiming for his head, he was just trying to get Bookers arm off him (with an elbow) and it looked like it could of hit Bookers head.

    Throwing an elbow is always ejection worthy IMO, no room for that.

    He was laughing at Booker's ridiculous flop though.

    I fine with ejections for obvious wreckless elbow (not a bball move) that could have landed a worse hit. But can we please be consistent. Green's leg kick against the Clippers and another last night didn't make the worse contact they could have, but that's still wreckless and not a bball move that could have landed a worse hit very easily.

    It's like Green's kicks are OK as long as he doesn't actually hit your face or nuts, but Vince's elbow can miss its target and hit a harmless armpit and be ejection worthy (which again, I'm OK with in that video).

    ------------------------------------------------

    Here: Vince's wreckless elbow hits an armpit and Draymonds wreckless kick hits an armpit -- of a Marquee Player, I might add. One is Flagrant 2 Ejection and another is "Play On"

    I wonder why the Clippers haven't submitted this to the league yet? Also, LOL at Draymond. He's not even trying to hide it anymore. That looked like something he learned straight out of a martial arts movie.

    I give the kick an 8/10. I give Green a 0/10 for being a piece of crap.

    Green clearly isn't trying to kick anyone guys. He is just flailing to try and draw a foul, and in no way should he ever be penalized for his leg contacting another player. Let's remember that is Blake Flopper nearby, he has history, and poor Dray is the victim of a conspiracy here.

    Just so you guys understand. He wasn't ejected for the forearm. He was tee'd for that. He also got another technical foul for putting his finger in Alex len's face after len knocked the ball out of his hand, which lead to the ejection.

    Go to the Draymond thread for the video from last night. He gets strips, so immediately kicks 5' into the air. It's an obvious move to prevent the opponent from getting to the ball, whether effective or not, he kicks because he got stripped in that video.
