Believe it or not, a #41 ranking is quite warm and fuzzy compared to what one of my Twitter buddies here in NWI said about LaMelo the day Borrego got fired. He calls him a glorified D’Angelo Russell… Time will tell when the next rankings come out if your current stance on Ball is justified.

If you want to live in your Warriors bubble and label Draymond a “basketball savant” then that’s on you. Others like myself who live in different parts of the country have a different approach.

I’ve spent the last couple days in Lansing, Michigan on a minor league baseball trip, so Draymond has been on the mind for other reasons beyond what’s been going on this board.

As someone that blogs young athletes you can imagine I’d be extra sensitive about him flipping off a full stadium of fans with kids present. Are we REALLY going to send the message to our youth that this behavior is OK???

A 25K fine for that was a slap on the hand (not the wrist), literally a high five. He should have been SUSPENDED for a game. Hold his team accountable for enabling that behavior…
Holy shit what a church lady bitchfest LOL

This is way too much.

First off, I don’t think anyone is saying Draymond Green is an ideal role model. Of course he isn’t. Neither was Barkley. Hence the comparison.

But saying he should be suspended from a playoff game for flipping off fans who were cheering when he got injured?

Hell no.

Where is the accountability for the fans?

Dray’s response wasn’t good and he got fined accordingly. But if we are talking about who the bad people in this are, it is the fans cheering because a player got injured.

Don't forget, you're talking to someone who not only wished a career ending injury on a player who had the audacity to leave one of his teams, but then defended it for years.

Wow forgot about this. Yeah I'm just not engaging anymore. Pointless really.

They have evolved, Dray does less of the stuff that Barkley did. That's my point, what you call some irredeemable thug is a pale echo of the Chuckster, back in the day. Brace yourself dude, Dray gonna be all over the NBA after he's done playing. Just like Chuck.
We'll see. Don't think I'll have any problem paying extra for League Pass.
