Oof! That’ll hurt! LeBron James may have been getting low-blows verbally from Golden State Warriors rival Stephen Curry, but the Cleveland Cavaliers star didn’t see this one coming! During game 4 of the NBA Finals on June 11, LeBron got in an altercation with Draymond Green, who gave him a punch in the groin! Click to watch!
Well that’s not very sportsmanlike! LeBron James isn’t having things his own way at the NBA Finals, with his Cleveland Cavaliers now 3-1 down in the series. And he certainly can’t have been expecting the treatment he got from Draymond Green, 26, in game 4 against the Golden State Warriors on June 10. I mean, it’s never been legal to strike an opponent in the groin area in any sport, right? Ouch!
Now, we’ve marveled at LeBron’s crown jewels many a time, and have been delighted that he’s shown off the goods more than once now, so is it any wonder perhaps that Draymond maybe got a little envious? We don’t know, but he certainly was doing everything in his power to knock LeBron off his stride.
The two were involved in various dust-ups during the game, and weren’t happy with each other, often roughing each other up, as they tried to get a psychological hold on the game. It can’t have been LeBron who was the happiest because things weren’t going the Cavs way!
In the fourth quarter, it all came to a head. LeBron and Draymond had to be separated and the heat rising off these two hit fever pitch. You could feel the tension in the stands, and amongst the players, who jumped in immediately to make sure the two didn’t get in to further blows.
The rivalry now that exists between these two will certainly make for an interesting game 5, should the two even be there. There has been talk of the NBA suspending them, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
With the competition at it’s most fierce and competitive, we expected something to heat up between the two teams. But we didn’t expect this! Hopefully, they’ll make up and be friends before the next game, but don’t bank on it!
