After an altercation with Cavaliers star LeBron James, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been suspended for game five of the NBA Finals.
The incident came after James supposedly walked over Green, causing Green to make contact with James’ groin. Because of this action, Green is reportedly set to lose $129,664 in lost wages.
This is a huge loss for the Warriors, seeing that Green is the team leader in rebounds, assists, and steals in this series. On top of all of this, Green is third in points per game for the Warriors.
James was also rewarded a technical foul for his actions, but is in no danger of missing any playing time. Once Green returns, you know the Cavs will wind up playing aggressively on him in order to get a reaction.
Was this ruling fair? Or will the media play it like the league is helping the Cavs win?
