We will have another Draymond Green kicking controversy on our hands after what happened Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers
Have you sat back recently while watching a Golden State Warriors game and thought to yourself, “Hey, you know what? It’s been a hot minute or so since we had a controversy surrounding Draymond Green kicking someone on the court!”?
You may or may not have, but either way, we have another situation involving Green and his flailing legs that took place on Thursday night.
To begin their second half of the season, Green and the Warriors are taking on the Los Angeles Clippers at home in a battle of two top contenders in the Western Conference. Well, in the first half of this one while fighting for a loose ball on the floor, Green nearly kicked Blake Griffin in the head. Now, the best part of this is the fact that it took place while Green was on the floor, as opposed to his other infamous kicking incidents where he was upright.
Also in contrast to the other incidents, Green never actually connected with the kick. It also was nowhere near Blake’s groin, so that’s another difference as well.
Still, there’s a lot to take away from this one here. You can watch this video over and over to draw your own conclusions, and surely people will be doing that for a good portion of the next 24 hours. It’s also maybe a foregone conclusion that this will get its own segment on First Take Friday morning, with a lot of yelling and arguing to accompany it.
If Green did try to connect with one of his kicks from his back, though, then you really have to give him an A for effort with this one.
