Draymond Green claims ejected NBA fan made death threats during game

Draymond Green found himself in a heated confrontation with a fan who was courtside during the Warriors and Bucks game.

Midway through the third quarter, the Golden State star could be seen getting fiery and back-chatting a supporter who was off camera.

Green could be seen exchanging choice words with the fan.

He could be heard yelling: “You ain’t s**t… Explain yourself if you wanna be heard.”

It made for an extremely heated moment.

After a conversation with crew chief James Capers and official Ray Acosta, the 32-year-old interrupted play to request the fan be ejected from the Fiserv Forum.

The Bucks crowd certainly voiced their displeasure with the scenes playing out as the man was escorted out of the building.

Following the game, Green claimed that the fan had made spoken death threats that led to him getting officials involved.

He said: “[He said] some threatening stuff to my life. I was this close to really going back, diving all the way in, but I kinda just went back, told the official.

“When I told the official what he said, he's like 'He gotta get outta here.'"

Fans online later pointed to Steph Curry’s shocked reaction after Draymond Green told him what the Milwaukee fan had said.

The incident comes just a couple of weeks removed from Green being fined $25,000 (A$36,000) for another run in with a fan.

During the fourth quarter of an NBA fixture with the Dallas Mavericks, Green appears to stop and direct some obscenities toward a fan.

He can be heard saying: “Enjoy the f***ing game, shut up.”

The NBA later released a statement saying the four-time All-Star had been fined for ‘directing obscene language toward a fan’.

The fan in question later donated $12,500 to the Dubs Community Foundation and $12,503 to the Mavs Foundation after pegging to match the fine.

He donated a sum to the charity of Green’s choice, which was the Warriors organisation foundation geared toward supporting education and youth in the Bay Area.

However, he donated $3 more to the Mavs foundation as a nod to their three-point victory over the Warriors.

As for his most incident, Green was happy to have let the officials on the court deal with the situation.
