Draymond Green could once again be under league review and face possible suspension for contact with an opponent’s groin, but LeBron James seemed more upset with Green’s words than his actions.
With just less than three minutes left in the Golden State Warriors’ 108-97 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night, Green and James got tangled. James stepped over Green after Green fell to the court, and Green swung his arm and appeared to make contact with James’ groin area. James immediately turned around, and the two players went chest-to-chest as play continued. Moments later, they got involved chasing a rebound, and each was called for a foul. They then had to be separated.
