LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — It looks like Warriors forward Draymond Green has yet to kick his habit of flailing his legs – and this time the would-be victim may have been Blake Griffin.
Green nearly kicked Griffin in the head during Thursday’s loss to the Warriors – and the moment quickly went viral.
Previous victims of Green’s overactive leg movements include Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, who Green infamously kicked in the groin during the 2016 conference finals, current teammate Kevin Durant, and Cleveland Cavs guard Kyrie Irving, who Green kicked in the chest during Game 1 of last year’s NBA Finals.
The move – which was described by league officials as a “unnatural leg extension” has resulted in a few flagrant fouls for Green, most recently for a kick last December that caught the Rockets’ James Harden square in the face.
No foul was called after the incident in the Clippers game Thursday, but the now-viral incident may put the Clippers and the rest of Green’s opponents on notice.
