Ok, so this happened:
Even IF Draymond didn’t intend to kick Steven Adams in the nuts as hard as he could, I still think he needs to sit out a game.
This, is why. In soccer, if someone is so out of control their body still harms or almost harms another player, it’s a flagrant foul regardless of whether they intended to hurt the other player or not.
In basketball, if someone LOOKS like they are grabbing someone in the act of staking an easy shoot, it’s an intentional, possibly flagrant foul.
In football, if a players hand makes contact with the opponents’ facemask, whether intentional or not, it’s a personal foul that will get them probably fifteen yards in penalties.
In this case, Steven Adams’ nuts had no bearing on the play. Green had already lost the ball and was in the act of trying to recover. I get it that he probably didn’t plan it out in advance to seize upon the opportunity, whenever possible, to kick Adams in the nuts. However, he was so out of control, flailing his legs in such a manner to present an obvious threat to the safety of other players, that the penalty should be the same. If they could prove he intended to do it, then a remarkably stiff ( no pun intended ) penalty should be assessed IN ADDITION to the normal penalty.
