Anybody who has followed the NBA this season has come across a video of Draymond Green’s leg flying in the direction of an opposing player at some point, and the debate continues on whether or not these actions are intentional.
So, of course, as the final minute of Game 7 ticked away Sunday night, we were given another one of these incidents to debate. In this video posted to Twitter by Sports Illustrated’s Kenny Ducey, Green falls backwards to the ground, swings his leg upwards and makes contact with Kyrie Irving (for the second time this series). It seems an unnecessary motion at first glance.
Was it intentional? You decide.

As mentioned before, this is not the first time we’ve seen this from Green.
