Warriors forward Draymond Green was fined $25,000 after getting into a fight with Wizards guard Bradley Beal on Friday. As expected, Green is not happy about the fine saying he was trying to protect himself.
Beal, who was ejected from the game after initiating the fight, was fined $50,000 and Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. also received a $15,000 fine. However, those numbers are not adding up for Green.
“I got hit and didn’t even hit back and got fined,” Green said, according to SF Gate . “Then for him to get fined only $50,000, I get fined $25,000. Oubre comes in throwing punches and he gets fined less than me. That just don’t add up to me."
The incident started when Beal grabbed Green around the neck after a Warriors rebound in the final 20 seconds of the first half. The two were interlocked fighting their way behind the basket and were eventually separated by Washington's Carrick Felix and Markieff Morris, who were suspended for one game each after leaving the bench.
“I know they ain’t the biggest fan of me. That’s fine, but don’t be so obvious that you’re not the biggest fan of me. That’s just too obvious. I think at the end of the day they’re going to make out who they want to make out to be the bad guy. That’s cool, but be fair across the board."
