The NBA did not suspend Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green for kicking Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams in the groin during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Instead, the league upgraded Green's Flagrant 1 foul on Adams to a Flagrant 2 and fined him $25,000.
Green avoided suspension, but he clearly saw no reason to elaborate on his feelings about it to the media. His penalty stands in stark contrast to the league's treatment of Cavs reserve Dahntay Jones, who was suspended for one game and fined $80 (that's right) for punching Raptors center Bismack Biyombo in the same region in Game 3 of their series.
During a media session before Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, Green gave mundane replies to reporters' questions, saying "that's a great question" twice in a row.
Though Green didn't want to talk about his good fortune, he was willing to talk about the upcoming game. He said the Warriors need to focus on themselves, because that's when they're at their best.
If Golden State can recapture the magic they conjured up during their historic season, Green may have more to talk about. But for right now, his team's back is to the wall, and talking is irrelevant.
