Draymond Green picked up another technical foul, and he will be suspended.

Draymond Green is one of those players who is constantly getting himself caught up in something. Overall, he is a great defensive player. However, over the years, he has proven to be a liability in terms of his discipline. It feels like every single season, he is suspended one game for picking up 16 technical fouls. Ultimately, it is a funny happenstance when you consider how Draymond always claims that you cannot "bait him with a tech."

On Wednesday night, the Golden State Warriors were playing against the Los Angeles Clippers. In the end, they lost the game, although the story of the game was a play involving Draymond Green. Down below, you can see the Clippers score a bucket. On the ensuing play, Green decides to take the ball and toss it at Russell Westbrook's head. Westbrook had an immediate reaction to the play, and the referee subsequently issued a technical foul. Green could not believe it, especially since it was his 16th tech of the season. Now, he will have to miss the next Warriors game.

Draymond Green Cannot Help Himself

For the most part, fans had a lot of fun with this play. After all, Green is one of those players that is very easy to hate. His podcast is a place in which he is constantly talking trash about other players throughout the league. Moreover, the fans do not like how he plays. Casuals want to see three-pointers and flashy offensive plays. None of these things describe Green's skill set. Additionally, Green's aforementioned claims about baiting him have been proven to be demonstrably false.

At this point in the season, the Warriors need better from Green. He is supposed to be a leader on the team, and this lack of decorum definitely does not reflect well. Additionally, the Warriors have been pitiful on the road this season. Last night's game was yet another example of that sad reality that continues to hamper this team. Let us know what you think of Green's actions, in the comments below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news from the sports world.
