Sooooo, Draymond Green was seemingly just ejected after receiving his second technical foul of the game. However, after getting called up, the referees seriously just re-imagined reality by changing the original technical to Steve Kerr instead of Draymond, so that Green could stay in the game.
Listen, even as a Warriors fan, this is some really bad looks for the NBA. They quite literally changed the tech from Draymond to Kerr, but only after (stupidly) assessing a tech to Draymond on a meaningless, harmless play.
This ref crew is an absolute abomination. It's a humiliating night for the NBA.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) June 10, 2017
The first half tech just got changed from Draymond Green to Steve Kerr and is now on DeMarcus Cousins. #NBAFinals— Scott Moak (@AnnouncerScott) June 10, 2017
I guess the refs thought, "Oh we can't throw Draymond out again." What's going on here? https://t.co/vWRD22T9cj— Will Hernandez (@thewillernandez) June 10, 2017
I want nothing more than for the Warriors to win this game and sweep, but if Draymond Green somehow hits the game-winning shot, after narrowly avoiding getting tossed — from techs on two questionable calls that will be scrutinized like the Zapruder film in the coming days — NBA fans are going to have a hard time laying off that “asterisk” talk.
Man, this game has been wild. Let’s see what’s about to happen.
