VIDEO: Draymond Green Ejected, Faces Suspension For Choke Hold

Things got wild quickly in the Golden State Warriors/Minnesota Timberwolves game Tuesday night, to the point where Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels were ejected, and Green is likely facing a suspension for the 9-second choke hold he put on Rudy Gobert. 

“He’s grabbing me, he’s grabbing me, he’s grabbing me,” Gobert recalled of the fracas that occured less than two minutes into the game. 

“It was a long time, and if he knew how to choke it could have been way worse. He tried to. His intention was to really take me out.  “(But) the choke wasn’t good enough. Yeah, it wasn’t enough for me to really have to (go to sleep). But he tried. He tried really hard, but it wasn’t good enough to where I felt like I was really in danger of falling asleep or something like that.”

"Clown behavior" was Gobert's final assessment of Green.

Of course, there are always two sides to the story, and Warriors coach Steve Kerr presented his team's side, starting with the fact that Gobert had grabbed Thompson first:

"There's no way Klay Thompson should've been thrown out of the game," said Kerr. "Guys on the back of the bench were telling me Rudy had his hands on Klay's neck, that's why Draymond went after him." 

Next up? The NBA will look into it, and one prediction on ESPN is that this could be as much as a 10-game suspension for Draymond.

Former player and current ESPN analyst Jay Williams said, "His reputation precedes him. Two ejections in the past four games... I think he's gonna get a 10-game suspension."
