    That image in the OP is from the NBA Rules Book.

    And fwiw: Draymond didn't get suspended for a 7th technical in the 2016 Finals, he got suspended for accruing his 4th Flagrant Foul in the Playoffs. Embiid also got suspended in last year's playoffs for a 4th Flagrant.

    Any player who is called for two flagrant “1” fouls in the same game will be automatically ejected from that game. The playoffs, however, use an additional three-point repercussion system that was implemented in 2010 and resulted in Draymond Green's suspension for Game 5 of the 2016 Finals for Golden State. During postseason play, each flagrant is awarded a point: one for flagrant "1" calls and two for flagrant "2" fouls.

    If a player’s playoff point total exceeds 3 points, he will receive an automatic suspension following the game in which his point total passes three points. Each additional flagrant foul committed during the playoffs results in suspensions of greater severity. Here is the NBA's official point system:

    Player at 2 points commits a FFP2: automatic one-game suspension

    Player at 3 or 4 points commits a FFP1: automatic one-game suspension

    Player at 3 or 4 points commits a FFP2: automatic two-game suspension

    Player at 5 points or more commits a FFP1 or FFP2: automatic two-game suspension​

    I agree, but I do appreciate it when it's against Golden State. Too much receiving and not enough giving to that collection of fake-tough prissies and media-trolls.

    Adrenaline does not work that way.

    It speaks for WB's stamina that he can still go to the opposing players after he spent his energy making plays.

    He should find another outlet to take it out on, the game alone isn't enough for some reason.

    There is competitiveness and over competitiveness.

    If Russ were to do that, I wonder if the NBA would react like the Champions League: Sergio Ramos for Real Madrid had a similar situation (accumulation of yellow cards) and deliberately got himself the triggering one right before a game he thought he could skip -- and UEFA promptly suspended him for an extra game: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/47409180

    (The Ramos story actually has a funny ending from a karma perspective, which those of you who follow this stuff will know well...won't bore the rest of you with it here in the hallowed, and always on topic, GARM).

    He’s going to have to learn how to keep his mouth shut. Plain and Simple.

    Like your Mom used to say back in the day, “just zip it.”
