    Draymond has a well-known history of injuring or making risky moves that could injure other teams in playoff games, often to key players.

    Don't think he goes for the crotch shot. Will almost surely get under Luka's feet after a jump shot and give a flagrant one shot, probably to the face

    I guess it gets tough if he goes for face clap/hit/chop and gets a finger in the eye -- I don't even know how to classify that. :oops:

    I'm somewhat surprised the Warriors aren't talked about as a dirty team.

    They sure as hell often end up "just going for the ball" while unfortunately injuring the best player on the opposing team.

    Draymond is the main culprit of course but there's been other guys on their team over the years

    Technically, it means permanently injuring. But here, we mean injuring or attempting to injure another player so that they could feel the effects for at least a quarter of an NBA basketball game. How's that for maima?

    I voted :
    Draymond "plays the right way" and you are just bitter

    But that's just what they'll say when it happens. I misread it. It will be totally dirty, the NBA won't care, Dallas and Houston fans will go ballistic, and nothing will happen to GSW. The next day the "pundits" will talk about how GSW is battle tested and a playoff team. Rinse, repeat every year.

    This only happens if it has to, if Dallas starts winning the series or a pivotal game. But it WILL happen if that's the case. I'd bet money on it.

    the risk (a flagrant one or at worst case an ejection) is well worth the reward (injuring the other team) so draymond is smart for doing what he does

    How often will Draymond be matched up with Luka? I'm honestly not sure. I assume they'll start with Klay or Wiggins on him and Luka will avoid the PnR with Draymond. I was expecting more 1on1 and PnR action with Steph or Klay.

    Why only Draymond? Jordan Poole can use the same vulcan death grip he used to destroy Ja's knee.

    I think Klay might try a sneaky undercut on a jump shot

    Draymond will likely go for the eyes and make it seem like he was just trying to fight for a rebound and it was an accident
