Has Draymond Green learned nothing from his past?

Draymond Green’s foul on Davis only adds to his long list of controversial plays this season. Green has served two lengthy suspensions this season for his wild antics on the floor. Draymond got suspended for 5 games after he put Rudy Gobert in a choke hold during a heated altercation against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

A few games after his return from the 5-game suspension, Draymond found himself in trouble again. He took a wild swing at Suns Center Jusuf Nurkic during a game and knocked him to the ground. Draymond got ejected for making excessive contact with an opponent’s face. The NBA penalized him with an indefinite suspension that lasted 12 games.

Draymond mocked Vanderbilt’s review action and yelled, “Shut your bit*h a** up man.” Draymond’s actions could hurt the Warriors again like they have done the entire season.
