Ever since last year’s playoffs, the Washington Wizards have been one of the most confrontational teams in the NBA.
During a heated playoff series, Wizards Guard Jon Wall got into an altercation with Boston Celtics Forward Jae Crowder.
This gave the Wizards their bad reputation of being one of the most “head-case” teams in the NBA.
In Saturday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors, the Wizards lived up to their reputation.

After getting tangled up under the basket, Warriors Forward Draymond Green proceeds to fight Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal. This ends in both of them getting ejected.
This affects both teams because they are both a crucial part of each teams success.
I guess if you are going to go out, might as well go out swinging.
After the game Green states that he had no choice other than to fight when he made comments to ESPN’s Chris Haynes:
Draymond Green is known to be in the middle of altercations. Just ask Steve Adams. I am surprised Green did not pull out his special move against Beal. I guess there are more tools in his toolbox than just that move. A kick in the balls is very effective though.
A mix of Draymond Green’s attitude and the Washington Wizards reputation, it is not surprising that it ended this way. I think Golden State just hopes this Green ejection doesn’t affect them like the suspension of Green in the 2015 NBA Finals.
We all know how that ended..
