Draymond Green Fined $15K for Failing to Leave Court on Time (VIDEO)

After nailing Blake Griffin with an elbow to the grill, Draymond Green lingered on the court to discuss the matter with a seething Griffin. The NBA slapped Green with a $15,000 fine. From the press release:

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been fined $15,000 for failing to leave the court in a timely manner upon his ejection, it was announced (Thursday) by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 0:01 remaining in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 105-103 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, Dec. 25, at Oracle Arena.

    stupid cheap shot. you can’t just assume that every player is like steve adams and enjoys getting wacked ion the face

    Blake needs to hit back sometime. I don’t endorse violence but someone who gets smacked around as much as Blake should stand up for himself. If disrespect isn’t addressed it’s probably gonna continue.

    I hear you, but at the same time, he’s out there to play basketball not fight. Green is a loser and was dealt with accordingly, but Blake gains NOTHING by retaliating. He tried to stick up for himself against Bogut and got thrown out the game, and his team lost. For the Warriors, it was ‘Mission Accomplished.’ You think because he retaliated, the next team will not try and cheap shot him?

    Guys don’t pick on Blake because they don’t think he’ll fight back, they do it to get under his skin, hoping he fights back and gets thrown out of the game.

    If he’d stand up for himself, he’d get ejected/suspended. Then teams could just send out scrubs to get under Blake’s skin and get him ejected.

    great point. matt barnes and jack are there to fight if someone needs to take an ejection for the team

  • Chubachuchi

    Yeah I understand. I’m just wondering though why Blake seems to be the prime target all the time. Other bigs/superstars and highflyers aren’t bullied around as much as him. The sour face he always makes after an altercation doesn’t help either.

  • Dfrance

    He let’s it affect him thats why. He gets upset, he pouts, he complains and it throws his game off. The way to get them to stop is to show them that it has no affect on you.

    Like LeBron did to KG here. lol
