Who's feeding the NBA pockets?
At this present moment, this incident is definitely "BROKEN NEWS". Draymond Green has already kicked Steven Adams in the nuts, the NBA has already ruled the safety of Stephen Adams nuts is worth $25k and OKC beat Chef Curry & Co in Game 4 where Draymond, once again has been exposed. My first reaction to the play, "Welp Draymond about to be tossed this game" but then I realized how dirty the play was and assumed the NBA would suspend Draymond for the next OKC game. After all that has happen in the last 48 hours, I think it's safe to say, the NBA tried to play us but made a fool of themselves.
As a man who loves the NBA, trust this was no fluke. I don't care what story Stephen A Smith trying to sell, but I'm not buying. Well how can you prove that? [I love this question simply because I love when people beat the system by using the system]. EASY! Before this play, in the last year show me how many times Draymond has shot a jumper and his legs flew up! I WILL WAIT. Go to any AAU game, NBA game, D1, hell any game and tell me how many times you notice when a player kicks out his foot when hes coming down from a shot. The greats, the Reggie Millers, Dwayne Wade of the world...always kick going up when they WANT the foul. NEWSFLASH: DRAYMOND already had the foul, KD already retrieved the ball...the play was essentially DEAD!
ALL OF THAT ABOVE WAS A RANT!!
The purpose of this post is simply to show, how much a joke the NBA is! The NBA was smart, they waited until the evening to announce Draymond would be fined, what I call "Sock Money", an amount this guy probably spends on socks. Let's be honest 25k is nothing to the 80 Million dollar man. You wait until the evening so most reporters can't write a story or call in for questioning and while you force them to accept the outcome you don't have to accept questions because "the office is closed". By ultimately by not suspending Draymond, the NBA taught us one thing...MONEY TALKS [CHRIS TUCKER ]
Its not even about Star vs Regular player calls, it's about who's feeding our pockets and how do we keep them happy. If that play happen and the following game the Warriors weren't scheduled to be on one of the biggest stages of the season, Draymond might have been gone two games! But the NBA knew they had 3 choices: Whats right, what's wrong and what cost us more! The chose the latter. MONEY TALKS PEOPLE!
CLOSING THOUGHTS: WHO MADE DRAYMOND A STAR? EVERY TIME I LOOK UP, THE TOP PLAYERS HE GUARDS, COOKS HIM...EVERY TIME! I KNOW HE CAN PASS BUT WHAT ELSE?
