When last we left the Golden State Warriors, they were knocking around momentum again (Lost by 30 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals? No problem! We'll win by double digits in Game 4!) and fretting that, with the series headed back to Oakland, they might be without Draymond Green, who once again did that thing he likes to do.
In other words, hit guys in the junk.
Had a run-in with LeBron James the other night, during which Draymond went to his signature move. LeBron stepped over him as he lay on the floor, and the D-Man punched him in the heirlooms for his trouble.
If it's ruled a Flagrant 1, Green will sit out Game 5, because he's already drawn a Flagrant 1 in this series. And if it's ruled a Flagrant 2, he'll sit out Games 5 and 6.
Which, frankly, is not as big a deal as it would be for other teams, since the Warriors seem to have an inexhaustible supply of capable bodies they can plug into the breach. Oh, they'll lose something, sure, but maybe not enough to turn the series in the Cavaliers' favor.
The bigger question is, what's the deal with Draymond and hitting people in That Place?
First he kicked Steven Adams of Oklahoma City right between the wickets; now he slugs LeBron in the same place. Is this just Draymond's way of playing the eternal rebel, by continually administering what polite society considers the lowest of low blows? Is this transference of some sort for some phallic issues of his own? Or is there another explanation not rooted in the Freudian?
Like, maybe the guy's just a gaping jackhole?
I mean, sometimes the simplest explanation is the best. Truth.
Update: NBA has suspended Green for Game 5.
