Matt Barnes does not agree with the NBA’s decision to suspend Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green in Game 5 of the NBA finals. In fact, the Grizzlies player thinks the organization “picks and chooses bulls*t.”

Green will not play with his team on Monday night because of a flagrant foul call during Friday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

During Game 4 of the less than entertaining series, Draymond and Cavs superstar, LeBron James got a little tangled up and when Green fell to the floor, James stepped right over him. In clear irritation, Draymond took his arm and swung at the LeBron’s groin. The two then got into a heated exchange.

It was that play that led to a technical foul. Unfortunately, the TF given marks Green’s fourth flagrant foul of the playoffs, which is an automatic suspension.

While Draymond Green’s actions in Game 4 do not merit a suspension as a standalone act, the number of flagrant points he has earned triggers a suspension for Game 5.”

Do you agree with the call?
