NBA set a subtle, scary precedent with Draymond Green suspension
The NBA’s decision to suspend Draymond Green for stepping on the chest of Domantas Sabonis has set a potentially dangerous precedent, according to one analyst. Tom Ziller, writing for SB Nation, argues that the decision to include Green’s history of unsportsmanlike behaviour in the decision to suspend him was unfair, and questions what the point is of having a “clean slate” when the playoffs start. While Green has been at the centre of controversy before for “dirty” plays, this should not have featured in the NBA’s decision to suspend him, argues Ziller. Green will miss Game 3 of the Warriors’ playoff series against the Sacramento Kings, following his ejection from Game 2.
