Draymond Green grabs Rudy Gobert’s throat in heated NBA altercation

Draymond Green: Controversy Erupts as Warriors Player Grabs Rudy Gobert

Draymond Green (33 years old and 1.98m) finds himself once again in the spotlight, this time due to a new on-court controversy. The Golden State Warriors power forward has made headlines for grabbing Rudy Gobert by the neck during a brawl involving several players from both teams.

Friction between Klay Thompson and McDaniels sparked the initial conflict. As they returned to their defensive and offensive positions, tensions escalated with a series of physical altercations. Amidst the chaos, Draymond Green silently approached Gobert, encircling him with his arm in a strangulation-like hold reminiscent of martial arts techniques.



After this incident was captured by the game cameras, the referee team reviewed the footage and promptly issued a Flagrant Type 2 foul on Draymond Green, resulting in his ejection from the game. Reflecting on the incident, Taylor Ford, the head referee, stated, “This conduct was unnecessary and excessive, meeting the criteria for a Flagrant Misdemeanor.”

Not only did Draymond Green face immediate consequences during the game, but the NBA also imposed a 5-game suspension and a hefty fine of $770,000 on the player. The Disciplinary Committee cited Green’s history of similar incidents as an aggravating factor in determining the punishment. In fact, during last season’s playoffs, Green infamously stepped on Domantas Sabonis’ chest in a game against the Sacramento Kings.

While Draymond Green faced the harshest penalties for his active involvement in the melee, the two players who initiated the conflict, Thompson and McDaniels, were fined $25,000 each for their confrontation. This amount, significantly lower than Green’s punishment, did not result in a suspension.

In a surprising turn of events, Rudy Gobert was also fined $25,000 despite being a passive participant in the altercation. Gobert did not directly engage in the clash and was merely a victim of Draymond Green’s actions. Nevertheless, the NBA deemed him one of the instigators of the incident.

Let Betis have fluidity in their game. Furthermore, the Betic defense showed many weaknesses and made numerous errors that allowed Villanovense to put Rui Silva in trouble. Isra Cano’s goal was a reflection of Betis’ lack of concentration and commitment during much of the match. The former Betic player managed to avoid several rivals and beat a surprised Rui Silva with a cross shot. It was a Maradonian goal that left Betis on the brink of elimination in the Copa del Rey. However, the Betis managed to react when time was running out. Abde managed to tie the tie in the 88th minute and Borja Iglesias sealed the match in the third minute of stoppage time, thus avoiding extra time. The triple substitution made by Pellegrini in the 70th minute, with the entry of Marc Roca and Aitor Ruibal, was decisive for Betis’ success. In short, Real Betis had a horrible game in Villanueva de la Serena and only managed to react when they were almost certain to be eliminated. The lack of fluidity in the game, defensive errors and the poor contribution of some players were the team’s main problems. Fortunately, they managed to come back and advance in the Copa del Rey, but they will have to improve their performance in the next matches

  1. This incident between Draymond Green and Rudy Gobert was extremely intense and unacceptable. Physical altercations have no place in professional basketball and it’s disappointing to see players resort to such behavior. Discipline and respect should always prevail on and off the court.
