The NBA has suspended Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green for one game without pay after stomping on Sacramento Kings player Domantas Sabonis during game two of the NBA championship game
Green was thrown out of the game after the incident.
Green will not play in game three against the Kings on Thursday.
Sabonis grabbed at Green’s ankle immediately before the stamp in an apparent effort to impede the Warriors veteran.
However the NBA said that a suspension against Green was merited given the Warriors star’s history of disciplinary problems.
“The suspension was based in part on Green’s history of unsportsmanlike acts,” an NBA statement said.
The suspension deprives the Warriors of one of their most important players as they head into a crucial game three down 2-0 in the best-of-seven series.
Green told reporters after Monday’s flashpoint that he had been unable to avoid stepping on Sabonis.
“I gotta land my foot somewhere and I’m not the most flexible person so it’s not stretching that far,” Green said.
“I can only step so far and pulling my leg away, so it is what it is. The explanation (for the ejection) was I stomped too hard.”
Warriors coach Steve Kerr, “didn’t see” the play live and didn’t see the replay.

Tucker Carlson described Kerr accurately in 2019 when Kerr, always happy to issue a woke lecture, bowed down to the Chinese Communist regime.
Tucker Carlson: “Steve Kerr is a phony. He’s brave when crowds applaud, but when money is at stake he shuts up and obeys like the cowardly little corporate stooge that he is. It’s hard to imagine how a man like that can look himself in the mirror at night. And yet he’s not alone. Hardly. There are countless Steve Kerrs in corporate America all of them happy to sell out their country. “
