The ban and punishment for Draymond Green's stomping on Domantas Sabonis during Game 2 of the Warriors-Kings NBA Playoff series is allegedly startling.
The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings should have one of the strongest First Round matchups in the 2023 NBA Playoffs.
Draymond Green, the Warriors' master-instigator, was disqualified after stomping on Kings big man Domantas Sabonis after the two became tangled up in Game 2.
Every view of the incident makes Green appear worse, and everyone has been waiting patiently for the sentence to be handed out.
Draymond Green's ban is apparently not going to materialize for the stomp vs. Kings game.
Given Draymond Green's history of striking opponents below the belt, mixing it up in unsavoury ways on a regular basis, and overall being a problem child on the Warriors' floor,
It is absolutely shocking to see the NBA not impose a ban for stomping on an opponent.
All indications point to Green playing in Game 3 and beyond of the Warriors-Kings series, barring another incident.
I'm sure there won't be any lingering resentment or hostility from the stomp that could erupt in the remaining games...
