Adrian Wojnarowski, the go-to NBA expert for ESPN, has now added his two cents with yet another epic Woj bomb.

The renowned broadcaster claims that a significant factor in their decision not to punish Draymond was that the Warriors will be receiving their championship rings on opening night on October 18.

“I’m told that the Warriors put significant weight on the fact that opening night is also ring night and the hanging of the Warriors’ 2022 championship banner,” Woj said.

“They simply weren’t gonna measure that as a one-out-of-82-game suspension. That if this incident had landed in the middle of the regular season, there’d probably be a suspension."

"If the Warriors weren’t defending champions and were just playing an ordinary opening night, there might very well be a suspension."

“But simply, Golden State did not want to punish Draymond Green in a way that he would miss opening night where he’d get his fourth ring with the Warriors,

and see his fourth banner during his tenure with Klay Thompson, Steph Curry brought to the rafters.”

That's a really good point, to be honest. However, it's difficult to refute the claims of those who think Green is getting away with his acts here with no more than a warning.
