This is just another day in Draymond Green’s life.

The NBA announced Thursday that they will not rescind the technical foul that was called on Draymond Green — his 16th of the season — which means that Green will be suspended, without pay, for one game.

Green will serve that suspension when the Golden State Warriors play the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night at the Hawks’ State Farm Arena.

The technical foul on Green happened during the Warriors game against the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday with just 40 seconds left in the contest, as Green threw the ball and slammed it into Russell Westbrook’s head after a score from Ivica Zubac.

Okay, first thing that I wanna know here: why was this man rubbing his hands like he’s the rapper Birdman?

Don’t get me wrong, I love Draymond, but I’m just curious as to why he was doing that in the post-game press conference. Other than that, I find this entire situation hilarious.

I mean, come on, when you see a scene that starts out with somebody slinging the ball, and it bounces right off of somebody’s head (which is funny itself), and then the person hit reacts in such an emotional way that makes you giggle, you can’t help but love this entire situation.

Should Draymond be suspended?

Sure, you can’t just have players slamming balls into other players’ heads.

But you also have to admit that this was hilarious — both things are true here.
