In a recent report by Shams Charania, it was revealed that Draymond Green, a player for the Golden State Warriors, will not be facing any significant consequences for stomping on Domantas Sabonis during a recent game.

While some expected Green to be suspended for the upcoming game, he is only expected to receive a fine.

This news has caused some to question whether Green's status as a defending champion played a role in the decision.

Given that other players have been suspended for less severe actions, many are wondering if Green is receiving special treatment.

Some believe that Green has developed a level of comfort with referees, allowing him to push the limits without facing consequences. This behavior dates back to 2016 and has continued to go unpunished.

Despite the controversy, the decision is a stroke of luck for the Golden State Warriors, who are in a precarious position.

Game 3 is critical for the defending champions, who are facing a 2-0 deficit. If they lose, they will face a daunting 3-0 deficit, from which no team in NBA history has ever come back.

As a result, Green will need to be on his best behavior during the upcoming game.

Overall, while many believe that Green should have faced harsher consequences, the decision is final.

The Golden State Warriors will need to rally behind Green and work hard to overcome their deficit in the upcoming game.

If they succeed, they will be one step closer to retaining their title as champions.
