Thread Starter 
I think they called a foul on Adams and at anytime they could call a Flagrant 1 so they could review it.

I believe I've seen them do it several times where they call a common foul and the guy who gets hit stays on the ground and refs all of a sudden calls a Flagrant so it can be reviewed. They've done this even on less physical plays just to be sure if there was a flagrant or not.

Flagrant doesn't have to be the initial call, it's been used as an excuse to review a play and that is probably why there aren't too many outcry on that part of the call because it's been done many times.


Question is do you guys think he'll get suspended consider Dahntay Jones just got suspended for hitting Biyombo on the groin?

I was just curious because I didn't hear anything about a flagrant being called prior to the review, either initially or once Adams went down. And I'm not sure I really read the rule to authorize "let's review the common foul we called on Adams to determine whether there was some sort of foul committed by Green".

Really just idle curiosity. The kick seemed pretty clearly intentional to me, and I think Green probably deserves a suspension. He's starting to go full Stephenson.

I suspect star treatment will be invoked and no suspension.

Save for the appendage each player used for the racking, the 2 events look pretty much identical. In fact, Green's was probably more blatant.

As a Warriors fan Green is even starting to piss me off. Not so much because of the hard play. Even if it means a few ill advised fouls.
But because he thinks he's a "star" and "team leader" and has forgot what got him here. Hard work, hustle, and never ending drive. He is not a all star based on his physical gifts, but rather because he out worked everyone else and keeps developing aspects of his game that give him an edge.

He needs to sit down, shut up, and just fucking grind. And never, ever jack up a deep three early in the shot clock again for as long as he lives. ever.

Ball don't lie!

Obviously biggest Warriors homer on the planet:

Yes, the officiating was pretty bad in the first half, right up to the Draymond nut kick. The highlight was Scott Foster confidently overturning a 24 second violation... when Durant didn't come close to hitting the rim. That's a play you can go to replay for... Same sort of calls happened with Tony Brothers too. Something dumb like 18-2 FT advantage and then 24-4. Wasn't a matter of playstyle either, as Klay and Curry were driving hard and getting contact.

Warriors got frustrated too easily and it snowballed out of control and then they sucked big fat donkey ass.

Do you have some video evidence of this Durant shot missing the rim? I love a good scheme, so I'm pulling for you.

No vid, not sure if TNT even showed a replay. They rarely show replays of calls, and it's been that way for a couple years now.

It pretty clearly failed to draw iron. Not that I'd defer to Reggie Miller's judgment in all things, but he also commented at the time (after watching it on replay) to the effect that it wasn't even close.

I'm not saying the refs are out to get the warriors. Incompetence, not malice. Foster and Brothers are probably the two worst refs in the league. Dubs got frustrated really easily over the poor officiating and just went off the handle.

Or on Adams' handle, as the case may be.

Well, you kinda were implying that.

I'm a friend of officiating conspiracy, but you have the most popular player in a decade and the league is plotting against his team? Don't see it.

Doesn't the bad guy wrestler have to win occasionally to keep the fans interested? Even in this thread people were already bitching that GSW has "had their turn". Disrupt the Dubs' dynasty, have them coming back hungry after falling short of a championship despite their historical regular season (*cough*Patriots*cough), and let Durant and a a physical-prime Westbrook have their shot at LeBron while Lebron is still at the top of his game and before Westbrook suffers some injury that costs him a bit of explosiveness. Don't you think they'd rather market next year with the subtext of "never stop watching because you never know what crazy shit will happen" rather than "jeez, how good have the Warriors been for the last few years?"

Green's call has been upgraded to a flagrant 2, but he's not suspended from the next game.

I don't really understand that. If it had been a flagrant 2 in game, would he not have been ejected? So this way he plays both games regardless?
