Warriors' Draymond Green says he appreciates the fan commitment to the game well

Warriors’ Draymond Green says he appreciates the fan commitment to the game well

San Francisco – follow up Draymond GreenFined $25,000 for swearing at a fan Earlier this week, the fan defended Green and even vowed to match the fine for charity.

Green was fined by the NBA on Thursday for “directing obscene language toward a fan” during the Warriors’ 116-113 loss to the Dallas Mavericks the night before.

Shortly after the fine was announced, Dallas’ Alikhan Rahmatullah took to Twitter to call himself the fan who made a trade with Green and even defended the Warriors star, writing in his tweet, “It shouldn’t be like that, we just had fun.” I will match your $25,000 with your favorite charity or NBA Cares. Your call.”

Rahmatullah told ESPN Friday night that he did not agree to the fine because he “did not offend” Green’s language.

And God’s mercy said, “Because of that, we can make light of the situation, do some good, and donate.” “Make it charitable… [fan decorum] A sensitive topic, but not always as controversial as it is supposed to be.

Speaking about the God’s Mercy Pledge, Green told ESPN that he thinks it’s a “fantastic gesture,” adding, “You don’t see that happening.”

The incident occurred with 11:20 minutes remaining in the Warriors’ game against the Mavericks. Teams were lining up for a free throw attempt, Rahmatullah said, and he said he began to make fun of Green’s shoe.

According to Green, there were “a lot of roll calls”. Eventually, Green turned around and told the fans to “Sit down, shut up and watch the game.”

Green did not reach out to Rahmatullah on Friday but said he was planning to.

“The money has to go somewhere,” he said of God’s mercy suggestion to match the fine. “You must help someone’s child.”

Green also addressed the issue of fan fitness, which has been a big topic in the league the past few seasons. Arenas across the league have implemented bans on some fans who engage in inappropriate behavior, but the incidents continue.

“I’ve been around for a long time,” Green said. “I don’t have much faith in anything that holds [fans] Responsible and transformative fitness for fans.”
