Draymond Green got caught red-handed, again.
The Golden State Warriors star went back to his dirtiest trick, kicking at a man's jewels, on Friday night during a preseason game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
This time, though, the Blazers used their Twitter account to put him on blast, and they posted this slow-mo video to prove a point.
The Blazers are right, too. We did talk about this a lot, particularly during the playoffs.
Remember? This all started during the 2016 postseason when Draymond got in trouble for kicking Steven Adams in the nuts during that series against the Thunder.
That time, it was super obvious.
Green explained at the time,
Um, I followed through on a shot. I'm not trying to kick somebody in the men's section. I'm sure he wants to have kids one day, I'm not trying to end that on the basketball court. That don't make sense. I brought the ball over atop this way, he fouled me, and my leg went up. I know my core isn't strong enough to stop my leg halfway from wherever it was going. I didn't honestly know I hit him.
OK, sure, except since then, there's been multiple instances in which he's basically gotten caught doing the same thing. At the very least, though, we could have let bygones be bygones and left that issue in the past.
But here he comes again, and the regular season hasn't even started. In the full video below, you can already tell the Blazers are pissed because everyone knows this is the type of thing Draymond does.
And I just can't help but go back to this:
I don't know how anyone could possibly say that I did that on purpose, regardless of the way it may look. I was going up for a shot, I got hit that way. When you get hit that way, your leg just goes up.
At this point, if you're not actually trying to stop, it's pretty much on purpose.
