As you’ve probably already heard, Draymond Green has been suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals for trying to hit LeBron James down low. As part of his suspension, he will not be allowed in Oracle Arena during the game starting two hours prior to the game and lasting through the end. He will be allowed back in for the championship celebration if the Warriors are able to finish off the Cavaliers at home in Okaland.
But, as we’ve all learned well enough in these playoffs, Draymond Green is a sneaky guy. So, naturally, he’s found a loophole that will allow him to hang out next door at the Oakland A’s stadium, The Coliseum.
According to Marc J. Spears of ESPN's The Undefeated, Draymond will be watching the game from the A’s stadium, which will be hosting a game between the A’s and the Texas Rangers about an hour and a half after the tip-off of Game 5. This way, if the Warriors are able to clinch the title, Green can just walk over and celebrate with his teammates.
If Green were to decide to risk it and attend the game in Oracle Arena, it could result in a $140,000 fine along with further punishment at the discretion of commissioner Adam Silver. Further punishment could even include a Game 6 suspension if the Cavaliers are able to win in Oakland.
Game 5 starts at 6pm (PST). We’ll see what impact the loss of the Warriors star power forward will make.
