    To top it off, Green was upgraded to a flagrant two and at the very least should have been ejected. So not only did he avoid suspension, he got to play an extra half of basketball as a bonus.

    At this point OKC should get one free kick. Then the NBA would have no choice but to allow it with this precedent set. Either that or else further expose itself as a fraud. There will be blood tomorrow and the NBA only made it worse.

    Kicked to the groin is 100x worse than a cloesline. I'd say, send Nazr Muhammed out there.

    *buzz* Wrong! It's because they've were DUBBED the greatest team in basketball before doing anything that could be considered the greatest. Try again, next time on "BAND! WAGON! TRIVIA!"

    Ethan Strauss: "While reasonable people can certainly make the case that punishments shouldn't depend on a player's status, a player's status certainly informs the gravity of punishment."

    So a reasonable take it that punishments shouldn't depend on a player's status, but the punishment should kind of depend on a player's status? He's writing in circles.

    Bottom line is that Draymond's role on his team shouldn't matter. If he is reckless, then he should be appropriately punished. We just saw another player get punished for a similar offense. That punishment was a suspension. How can it not apply to Draymond Green? Both Strauss' writing and the NBA's treatment of Draymond Green's antics are jokes.

    The NBA league office did a tremendous amount of damage to an already diminished integrity.

    Fan perception of a corrupt system that favors one team over another was only reinforced by yesterday's decision irt to Draymond Green. In that regard, Silver's NBA appears to be no better than Stern's.

    If you were already a cynical NBA fan, you are more so this morning.

    Be it as it may, I am now cheering for the Thunder to dismantle GS.

    League protection is the best way to get 73 wins and a championship.

    It looks like something Wade did a while ago. Was Wade suspended?

    Just listening to Espn's Mike and Mike.

    Stupid Jackson, former chief of NBA in charge of fines and suspensions just stated that Green's actions met all the 6 criteria he uses to evaluate a player's possible discipline. He actually said he would have suspended Green for 1 game.

    Before breaking up, he also mentioned that in these playoffs, players are not being judged equally, meaning a star player gets preferential treatment. (Paraphrased from me because of deteriorating call quality).

    I guess we are not a bunch of tin-foil hat conspiracy theorists, are we?

    Silver missed the opportunity to guide the NBA to a better place. Instead, the ghost of Tim Donahue still haunts us fans.

    That article of his literally read as if it was written by a high school freshman. How the hell is that guy employed as a journalist?
