And Draymond Green has finally met that limit. He will be suspended for game 5 for his latest hit to the nuts of LeBron James.
The NBA upgraded his foul for the hit to the groin to a flagrant. The upgrade to a flagrant gives him four flagrants for the postseason and an automatic suspension, via CBS Sports:
Draymond Green has been suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals. He was retroactively assessed a flagrant foul because he made "unnecessary contact with a retaliatory swipe of his hand to the groin of Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James," which gave him four flagrant foul points in the playoffs and automatically triggered a one-game suspension. Charles Barkley must not be happy about this at all.
I didn't think the foul called on Draymond was for the shot to the dick. So this might be the NBA throwing the Cavs a bone. I'm sure they don't want a 5 game series. A 6 or even 7 would be better from the league's view.
