Draymond Green has been handed a fine by the NBA following his antics against Memphis Grizzlies fans. The Golden State Warriors star hasn't had an easy second-round series, first getting ejected from Game 1 on Sunday and then showing his two middle fingers in the following game.
He knew the fine was coming and didn't care about it, saying he'd make $25 million so he should be good no matter what the league decided to do.
I'll take the fine... It just felt really good to flip them off. You’re gonna boo someone who got elbowed in the eye and has blood running down your face I could have had a concussion. If they're gonna be nasty, I can be nasty.
Well, he's taking the fine now, as the NBA decided to fine him $25K for his actions during Game 2 of this entertaining series. Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that the 3x NBA champion was punished for his actions, but that won't bother him.
On the other hand, the Grizzlies learned that Dillon Brooks has been suspended for Game 3 of the series. This matchup has been very intense since the beginning and nothing points out it will change very soon. Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday and fans are hoping to see another great duel between two of the most entertaining teams in the Western Conference this season.
