5 most violent Draymond Green ejections

Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green added to his long history of ejections during Tuesday’s In-Season Tournament game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Green was one of three players ejected after he put Wolves star center Rudy Gobert in a chokehold while backing up teammate Klay Thompson.

The ejection marked the 18th of Green’s 12-year career (regular season and playoffs combined), the most of any active player.

However, Green’s ejection on Tuesday was particularly violent, with many calling for the star forward to receive a long suspension. Likewise, many also questioned whether it was Green’s most violent ejection of his career.

On that note, here are five of Green’s most vicious career ejections:

Draymond Green’s most brutal ejections#5 Draymond Green’s face-to-face altercation with Isaiah Stewart

During the Warriors’ regular season matchup against the Detroit Pistons on Jan. 4, 2023, Green was ejected late in the fourth quarter. This came after he got involved in a face-to-face altercation with Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart.

The two players were assessed double technical fouls. However, the tech marked Green’s second of the game, resulting in an automatic ejection.

The Warriors ultimately lost 122-119. Green finished with four points, eight rebounds and seven assists on 50% shooting in 30 minutes.

#4 Draymond Green’s hard foul on Brandon Clarke

During Game 1 of Golden State’s 2022 Western Conference semifinals series against the Memphis Grizzlies, Green was ejected late in the first half. This came after he grabbed Grizzlies big man Brandon Clarke by the jersey mid-air and pulled him to the ground, resulting in a Flagrant 2.

The play marked a dangerous one, as Clarke could have easily been injured. Green also didn’t even attempt to make a play on the ball. However, Clarke wasn’t surprised:

The Warriors went on to win 117-116 to take a 1-0 series lead. Green finished with six points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals on 66.7% shooting in 17 minutes.

#3 Draymond Green’s scuffle with Bradley Beal

During the Warriors’ regular season matchup against the Washington Wizards on Oct. 27, 2017, Green was ejected late in the first half. This came after he got involved in heated a face-to-face scuffle with then-Wizards star shooting guard Bradley Beal. The incident resulted in the two stars tumbling to the ground.

Beal was also ejected and later took responsibility for engaging in the altercation with Green:
