Draymond Green Takes Flopping to Another Level to Draw a Foul Call

On the basketball court, the movements of Draymond Green are about as predictable as LaVar Ball is humble.

One can’t know where Draymond’s limbs will end up, but one thing you can count on: His flailing will be reckless, and it will be dangerous, particularly when he’s trying to get calls from the ref.

In the second quarter of Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, Green found himself defended by Jonathan Simmons.

A ball fake led Simmons to whack Green across the face—a foul to be sure, but Draymond acted like he’d been taken out by Barry Pepper’s Private Jackson in Saving Private Ryan.

Simmons was frustrated that Draymond’s flop helped draw a whistle from an official, but at least he had an encounter with the Warriors defensive dynamo and still has is nuts and face intact.

With Kawhi Leonard still out, the Golden State Warriors won 129-115 to complete the sweep and head to their third consecutive NBA Finals.
