The most frustrating thing about watching the Finals (or any Cleveland game for that matter ) is Lebron James being treated like the Golden Child. If Draymond Green has to sit out of Game 5 of the NBA Finals because of this http://www.nba.com/video/channels/originals/2016/06/12/bbops-draymond-green-groin-contact-061016-pr-v2.nba/ then Lebron needs to receive a technical at the VERY least. The “swipe” that Draymond took at Lebron was a result of Lebron doing everything he could to get a reaction from Draymond – it was unnecessary and completely out of character on Lebron’s part. Why did he do it then? Maybe because he realizes the only way he will even have the remote possibility of winning another championship this season is by getting Golden State’s best players suspended.
Draymond is an emotional player, Lebron knows this, everyone knows this. I’m not condoning Draymond’s reaction, or any retaliation for that matter – but I am completely fed up with Lebron doing whatever he wants on the court with no consequence. His constant travelling, running players over and getting to the free-throw line because of blocking calls and now, let’s add throwing players down, stepping over them unnecessarily, instigating a reaction and not being held accountable.
Even with Draymond sitting out for Game 5, I don’t think Cleveland has a chance to win this game in Oakland. Nice try Lebron. Take your “talents” to Oakland, OKC, San Antonio or another pre-built team where you can be a role player and maybe then you’ll get another ring.
