Draymond Green took issue with the referees after the Warriors’ 103-102 loss to the T-Wolves on Friday, saying, “I got to play by different rules than the rest of the NBA.”

Specifically, Green said he shouldn’t have been whistled for a technical when he struck Karl-Anthony Towns after the whistle during the third quarter.

“How I get a technical for trying to stop continuation?” Green said.

Ironically, Green joked that he wasn’t going to complain over the officiating and risk a potential fine.

“I contemplated for a long time whether I was just going to give the 25 [thousand dollars] up and wash my hands with it. I’m going to go buy myself a nice watch tonight with that $25,000 I thought about spending tonight. I’m going to post it on Twitter. Not Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat. I’m going to go buy myself a nice gift for the discipline I showed tonight.”
