Draymond Green, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, has expressed his thoughts about his latest removal from the game. On Wednesday night's game against Orlando Magic, he was ejected after just a few minutes of the game. During his podcast episode of “The Draymond Green Show” on Thursday, he talked about getting removed less than four minutes into the game. He claimed that he deserved to get removed but being thrown off the court “just can’t happen”.

“I said what I said; I deserved to get kicked out at that point,” he said.

On Wednesday night, the referee gave Draymond Green a technical four after a controversial decision over a foul call. As the official walked away, Green continued shouting at him. He then issued him a second warning and he got removed from the game. In the podcast, he talked about what he said to the referee.

Draymond Green has already missed 12 games because of suspension

Mitchell Ervin, the lead official on Wednesday night, told reporters that after a “prolonged diatribe,” Green was issued the second technical foul for directing “egregious profane vanguard towards a game official,” according to ESPN.

Mitchell Ervin disproved the fact that Draymond Green's background in the NBA influenced his decision to give him two technical fouls. This ejection of Draymond Green on Wednesday night was his fourth of the current NBA season. Last December he was ejected from the match due to knocking down Phoenix Suns player Jusuf Nurkic. 

Draymond Green has already missed 12 games because of suspension. He came back in January. Steve Kerr coach of Golden State Warriors told to reporters after the Wednesday game that green removal was too bad. He also added that he would make a comeback before enjoying their win against Orlando Magic.
