Unlike most people who attend Major League Baseball venues in suites, Draymond Green did not enjoy himself at the Oakland Athletics-Texas Rangers game on Monday night. Of course, it had nothing to do with the play on the field itself, but rather what was going down on the court at Oracle Arena across the parking lot.
Green's suspension held him out of Oracle completely as the Warriors were taken down, 112-97, by the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. A victory would have given Golden State a second consecutive title, capping off their record-breaking 73-win season.
Green would've gone through a tunnel connecting the Oakland Coliseum to Oracle Arena if the Dubs had won, but it ultimately wasn't necessary.
Trying to make the most of his visit and potentially pick up his spirits, the A's offered Green an invitation to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before their game. With his mind elsewhere, Draymond declined.
A's invited suspended Warriors star Draymond Green to throw out ceremonial first pitch but he declined. Wants to keep low profile, A's say.

I'm sure he'll get another opportunity to do so in the near future, perhaps while enjoying another championship summer by the Bay.
