If you're Golden State forward Draymond Green, you insult the fans of your opponent. They were just as confused as everyone else.
According to the ABC broadcast, Green's name was down for the first technical and it was only changed after he was handed the second one.
Basically what happened was a tech was called on Green in the third and everyone thought it was his second and that he'd be ejected, but the officials claimed that a first-half tech that was called on Green was actually supposed to have been called on Steve Kerr. "I thought I deserved it", Kerr said.
"Because after the first tech on Steve, which I didn't understand, Mike Callahan came up to John and asked him who the tech was on, and he said Kerr. Maybe he will, I don't know". "Don't seem to be the sharpest people around".
"I thought they called it on Draymond", Kerr said. "But I thought I heard the PA announcer say it was on Draymond". ESPN sideline reporter Doris Burke reported that the official scorer's table was told that the first technical had been on Green.
The Ray Charles classic, "Hit The Road Jack" was blaring from the arena's speakers, and the fans were dancing as Green - their most loathed opposing player - held his arms aloft and urged the crowd on.
Late in Game 4 past year, Green swiped at LeBron James' groin and was subsequently given a flagrant foul.
"I really don't pay that much attention - I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland honestly", Green said.
