"I got choked, put in a chokehold like I was in the WWE or something."
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was hit with a flagrant foul 1 in last night's 116-101 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, but he says he isn't the only one who should've been penalized.
Green was tangled up with Spurs forward Davis Bertans late in the fourth and he used his right elbow to free himself, which sent the 6'10 big man to the floor and led to the flagrant 1. According to Green, Bertans should have also received a flagrant for his role in the incident.
"I think it was a little bit of a flop," Green told the media after the Warriors' Game 2 victory, according to ESPN. "I don't even know if I hit him, but if I did -- I'm not saying I didn't, I don't know -- but if it's going to be a flagrant foul, shouldn't it be a double flagrant? Like, I can just get grabbed around my neck? I'm not going to sit up here and say I did nothing. I've got to get someone off my neck, though. If you're going to penalize me, then why not penalize both? That's really my only thing."
That said, Draymond didn't seem at all concerned with the flagrant. "Nah, I don't care. It is what it is," Green responded, per ESPN. "Life goes on. There's more important things in life than worrying about a flagrant point. Maybe it'll get rescinded. I got choked, put in a chokehold like I was in the WWE or something. So it might get rescinded. Who knows?"
The Warriors lead the series 2-0 as the two teams now head to San Antonio for Games 3 & 4. Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday at 9:30pm ET.
