Draymond Green has built a bad reputation for himself when it comes to making dirty plays in the NBA and has intentionally hurt many different players over the course of his career. On Sunday night, the Warriors took on the Cleveland Cavaliers, and there was a certain play where Draymond and Jarrett Allen both went up for a rebound. Allen accidentally kicked his leg up and kicked Green in the junk. 

No technical foul was assessed because the kick did not appear to be intentional.

Draymond has had this coming to him for a long time. 

From stomping on Domantas Sabonis in the playoffs last year and bruising his ribs, to kicking Steven Adams in the groin area multiple times, kicking LeBron in the groin in the 2016 finals, on top of elbowing James Harden in the throat, it’s safe to say Green has had a long history of committing intentionally dirty plays on other players when he gets angry or upset on the court. These are just a few of the many grimy plays Draymond has made throughout his career. Heck, he even sucker punched his own teammate last year during practice.

The cherry on top of this whole scenario was Draymond Green complaining about the incident on his Instagram story. “The Draymond Green rule is only a rule when Draymond Green is delivering… cool,” Draymond whined. 

Green’s reaction is hilarious.  He has repeatedly given cheap shots to other players for years, and the one time something similar happens to him, he decides to act like the league is out to get him, claiming the rule, “only applies to him.” 

What Draymond appears to not understand is when you give yourself a reputation, it will stick with you. So, when you stomp on people and repeatedly kick people in the groin on national television, people are going to look at you a certain way, and so will the refs, which is why Draymond is ejected or assessed technicals whenever similar plays happen. 

Jarrett Allen has no history of committing dirty plays, so it is pretty simple why the refs would choose to assume it was not intentional. 

Draymond normally wants to play the victim, so it doesn’t surprise anyone to see him try to put the NBA in a bad light for something he brought upon himself. 

Let’s be clear–Draymond is normally assessed technicals or ejected from games when a potentially flagrant play happens due to his long history of committing those exact types of plays. The “Draymond Rule’’ is simply Green’s agenda to frame himself as a victim, but he has clearly administered this kind of treatment upon himself.
