Magic Johnson Defends Fellow Former Michigan State Star Draymond Green On Twitter

You can count Magic Johnson among the people who didn't have a problem with Draymond Green's below-the-belt kick of Steven Adams. 

The Golden State Warriors' forward, in the process of trying to draw a foul, kicked the Oklahoma City Thunder big man in the nether region during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. 

The NBA announced Monday night that Green, who received a flagrant foul for the play, would not be suspended. 

Johnson, who, like Green, starred at Michigan State, took to Twitter earlier today to defend his fellow Spartan.

Johnson isn't alone in his defense of Green. 

Former Michigan State star Denzel Valentine also took to Twitter to defend the NBA All-Star. "This is basketball, not tiddly winks," he tweeted

Golden State and OKC are set to play Game 4 at 9 p.m. E.T. on TNT.
