The NBA Suspends Draymond Green For 5 Games

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

Draymond Green has been suspended by the NBA for five games due to placing Rudy Gobert in a chokehold during an altercation.

An altercation between the Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green and the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Rudy Gobert resulted in Green being ejected immediately from the NBA game on Nov. 14. The league has suspended the NBA champion for five games due to the actions that took place during that contest.

NBA.com reported that NBA Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars announced that Green has been suspended five games without pay “for escalating an on-court altercation and forcibly grabbing Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert around the neck in an unsportsmanlike and dangerous manner.”

The length of Green’s punishment is due to his noteworthy history of “unsportsmanlike acts.”

The Warriors’ starting forward will start his five-game suspension on Nov. 16, when his team goes up against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chase Center.
X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, had its share of users posting controversial video clips of the player over the years in the NBA, starting with a mashup “mixtape” of classic moments featuring Green and his “unsportsmanlike acts.”

Gobert was not pleased that he was fined, saying he was trying to be a peacemaker.
“Every situation is different, but to me, that was more than just a reaction. That was a personal attack,” Gobert said. “Me being fined when I was being a peacemaker, and I chose to keep my hands up while I was being assaulted, it’s shameful. Shameful. And I’m going to appeal that fine.”
This was Green’s second time being thrown out of a game this season. He was ejected from the Nov. 11 game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
