Draymond Green Speaks Out For First Time Since Incident

Draymond Green has finally broken his silence after the incident in the game with the Sacramento Kings. Green has been suspended for Game Three of the Warriors-Kings series after stomping Domantas Sabonis. The stomp has elicited a lot of discussion on the punishment handed down to Green. However, some are wondering how Sabonis avoided suspension. As his actions are the entire reason the incident even occurred. But the league felt a technical foul was sufficient enough punishment for Sabonis.

On Wednesday night, Green took to an Instagram story to give a mysterious comment on the moment. "Because winners always win," posted Green in the Instagram story. It seemed as if Green was against the world during the incident. The Sacramento crowd began heavily booing Green during the official timeout to review the play. Green then began giving it right back to the crowd. As he began jawing with fans behind the Warriors bench. However, whatever case Green may have made on the floor didn't help his cause. The Warriors forward was ejected from the game.

The Warriors will be without Green as the team looks to avoid a 3-0 series deficit. In the Golden State Steph Curry era, the team has never been down 2-0. The Warriors will be looking to make a statement when the series begins on their home court. However, Warriors fans will have to be extremely loud to match the atmosphere in Sacramento. Coaches and players involved in the series have discussed the impact the fans played on the first two games of the series.

Green has a long history of being on the wrong side of on the court altercations. The former Michigan State Spartan was suspended in the 2016 NBA Finals for his on the court physicality with LeBron James. Green's absence in that series changed the entire tone. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Finals. However, many wonder if the series would have gone Golden State's way if Green wasn't suspended.
