    So the league does not condone Draymond by handing out what they deem appropriate penalties. So league agrees that Draymond's habit is wrong and dangerous. However, suspension warrants proof of intent, and the league viewed Draymond's history as a sufficient argument that he does not tend to kick to CONNECT.

    Karl Malone is another matter. I haven't viewed his history, and it'd look very different if his history of flailing kicks predominantly goes in the air with no one near him versus with someone around to potentially hitting.

    In Draymond's case, majority of his high kicks occur when no one is even close. The league did seem to have done the due diligence, fans who are in doubt and who care enough can likewise examine the cases to the same extent as the professionals before jumping to conclusions of conspiracy.

    (Conspiracy does exist, but still you can always examine before you conclude. In this Draymond kick case, I find the league's explanation convincing.)

    Thx. There's a link to some videos there, and the guy claims he has 140 clips. I can only assume the league examined even more clips.

    And Green did get punished, and he has to change his habit. I think he knows his act is getting dangerous now but as a "man" he prob feels no need to bowing down to media pressure. He's a young man still.

    Plus, he will be suspended with his next flagrant. The league's ruling saved him for one game. So better be careful now?

    Should the league suspend OKC for violating the Warriors two games in a row?

    Skip Bayless was on point, this is about the business and media partners and the protection of the NBA's product. Stu Jackson is an ass, SAS is right he didn't suspend the hit to the groin from Ibaka so he needs to STFU. Glad the Warriors got beaten full force.

    After tripping Kanter last night, think the NBA had to be shaking their head. What a jackass Draymond is, really needs to be suspended to watch his team lose this series at home to maybe teach him a lesson.

    This is an example of a Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1. A Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1 is defined as contact that is unnecessary. The defensive player on this play will extend his left leg and trips his opponent as his opponent moves by him in transition. This is a non basketball play by the defensive player with potential for injury. Any foul that is ruled Flagrant on the court will be reviewed via Instant Replay to determine if it is a Flagrant 1, a Flagrant 2, a Technical Foul, or a common foul. The penalty for a Flagrant 1 is two free throws for the offended player and his team would also retain possession of the ball.

    Green trips Kanter, and it looks very deliberate. It's disguised well to be in a gray area, but with Green's history, the NBA should not be giving him the benefit of the doubt anymore. Should not and will not are different when it comes to officiating Green, though. Green clearly plays by different rules.

    ^ Doesn't matter. League has already decided to play favoritism on this one.

    Can we expect snipers hiding in the rafters for game 5 ready to take out OKC players?

    I think that's pretty fair at this point.

    He is such a dirty MFer - the NBA needs to come down hard on this bull****.

    He had 2 hands in the back of all of our bigs all game long - a good coach would have been SCREAMING at the refs to call it.

    Draymond needs a timeout...

    Draymond must not be a believer in karma - it's definitely biting him (and the Warriors) in the ass. He needs to recognize his "accidental" flagrant fouls are hurting more than helping. I thought he was smarter than Dwight. But he's really just a thug who's allowed to escape accountability.

    It was dumb of him to kick Adams but I'm not sure how Draymond is a "thug". That's ridiculous.

    Shocker! The NBA letting Draymond Green get away with pretty much whatever he wants? I don't believe it!

    Why do I say this? Because he has demonstrated a pattern of cheap shots and harder than necessary fouls. This is not an isolated incident, but rather something systemic that the league would like to sweep under the rug.
