Draymond Green Seeks To Aim Higher This Season: Kicks James Harden In The Head In 2OT
At the beginning of the season the NBA issued a memo saying that it would be looking closely as incidents in which players are being kicked, and would issue flagrant fouls accordingly.
They should have just sent one, to Draymond Green.
The Warriors lost to the Rockets on Thursday 132-127 in double overtime, but it didn't have to be. They shot only 27 percent from 3, Steph Curry fouled out, and Green did this. The Warriors were only down 2 at the time in the second OT.
But with the flagrant, Houston gained control of the scoreboard, and the game. Draymond made only one of his two free throws, and Harden made both of his, and the Rockets got the ball.
Green was not thrilled to talk about it.

Harden also got an elbow from Green.

At least we now know that Green is performing at playoff intensity.
Those who watch Green with any regularity know that he's simply incapable of keeping both rear flaps down in a tangled situation. I don't think he's kicking these dudes on purpose, especially with that NBA memo tucked in his shorts. But you still can't be throwing shoes like you're an Iraqi journalist.
Well, at least it wasn't the balls.
