Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was suspended from last night’s Game 5 of the NBA Finals for flagrant fouls of the “Hit The League’s Biggest Star in the Groin” variety, so he needed to make some plans. Hard to do on a Monday night on short notice, even in a place as cool as the Bay Area. Luckily, there’s a baseball team nearby that always has tickets available.
Green attended the Rangers-A’s game at the Coliseum instead. He sat in the A’s owner’s suite too, which is pretty cool. The A’s actually invited him to throw out the first pitch but he decided to keep a lower profile. Still, word got around the park that he was there after he was spotted and people were chanting his name and stuff.
Word was that Green made his choice so he could be next door to Oracle Arena and quickly come over if the Warriors had won the game and thus the title last night, as he would’ve been allowed inside for the celebration. But I bet he secretly just wanted to watch Cesar Ramos take on Sean Manaea. Or he may have heard that Shin-Soo Choo had been reactivated.The Warriors celebrated last year. That’s old hat. It’s not every day you could see a game like this one.
Wait. It’s totally every day that you can see a game like this one. That’s what makes it so cool.
