The internet erupted during OKC's blowout victory
Golden State's Draymond Green could be facing punishment from the league today, following his swift kick to the groin of Oklahoma City's Steven Adams during the Thunder's blowout victory in Game 3.
In case you missed it, here's the play:
As you'd expect, the Warriors tried to down play the incident. Coach Steve Kerr said, "Stuff like that happens all the time," and Draymond defended himself in statement saying, "I followed through on a shot," Green said. "I'm not trying to kick somebody in the men's section. I'm sure he wants to have kids one day. I'm not trying to end that on the basketball court. That don't make sense. I brought the ball over the top this way [makes motion], he fouled me, and I brought my leg up. I mean, I know my core's not strong enough to stop my leg halfway from wherever it was going."
Not trying to kick someone in the "Men's Section?" What is this Joseph A. Bank?
Naturally, the Thunder were less forgiving, especially since this is the second time that Draymond has hit Steven Adams in the "Men's Section."
"I mean, it happened before, mate," said Adams, who was kneed in the groin area while Green was shooting a transition layup during Game 2. "He's pretty accurate, that guy."
"Honestly, I think it's intentional," Westbrook said. "That's two times in the last two games. I don't think you can keep [hitting] somebody in their private areas."
And of course, the outburst on social media was everything you could've asked for.
