Over the weekend, the two-time champ told The Athletic that the whole situation was “ruining the game” and that the league should start anew by replacing all its referees.
Green made the controversial comment after the Warriors bagged an easy 121-105 win over the LA Clippers, a game where he also got his 11th technical foul of the season when he tried to contest a referee’s call.
Green also got ejected over a week ago after he picked up a pair of technical fouls during the Warriors’ 141-128 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.
Ejections and technical fouls aside, this isn’t the first time that the NBA decided to fine Green this season. In October, the All-Star and defensive player of the year got slapped with a $25,000 fine following his scuffle with Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal.
So far, Green leads the league with 11 technical fouls this season, followed by DeMarcus Cousins, and teammate Kevin Durant with seven apiece. In terms of ejection, Green and Cousins are tied at second with two each, while Durant has the most at three.
