We already knew Draymond Green could throw hands, as evidenced by his sucker punch of Jordan Poole in practice back in 2022.
All we know is that two minutes into Golden State’s in-season tournament game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday, things got incredibly heated before the first basket could even be scored.
A jersey-ripping fracas involving Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels broke out, and Draymond’s eyes got as big as saucers.
. You knew something was coming because he’s always been an act first, think later kind of guy. He freaking went for it. He saw his moment and snatched that neck.
He dragged Gobert away from the danger zone like he was restraining a streaker who’d run across the court. Draymond wanted to show that he isn’t just a striker.
It turns out Draymond’s choke hold is as ugly as his jumper. Klay and Jaden had just finished twirling each other around when Gobert grabbed Klay, attempting to play peacemaker, his neck taut and temptingly extended to the heavens.
