Draymond Greens flagrant foul wont be rescinded, but history serves as cautionary tale
When Draymond Green was asked about his flagrant foul on San Antonio’s Davis Bertans after Monday’s Game 2 at Oracle Arena, the Golden State forward made it clear he wasn’t yet worried about the possible ripple effect of it all.
“Nah, I don’t care,” Green said when asked about the possible one-game suspension that would come if he piles up three more flagrant foul points by the end of the playoffs. “It is what it is. Life goes on. More important things in life than worrying about a flagrant point.
“Maybe it’ll get rescinded. I got put in a chokehold like I was in WWE or something. So it may get rescinded. Who knows?”
First things first, that’s not happening – despite Green’s frustrations and protestations. According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the flagrant foul will stand and Green is now three points away from said suspension. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the decision was not announced by the league.
