Sometimes you have to laugh off losing $50,000 ... right? Well, at least if you're Draymond Green.
That's exactly what the Warriors' star forward did Sunday on Twitter.
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣— Draymond Green (@Money23Green) August 9, 2020
Green was fined $50,000 for violating the NBA's anti-tampering rules regarding comments he made about Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker on TNT's "Inside the NBA."
"It's great to see Book playing well and Phoenix playing well, but get my man out of Phoenix," Green told hosts Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley on "Inside the NBA." "It's not good for him. It's not good for his career. Sorry, Chuck. But they gotta get Book out of Phoenix.
"I need my man somewhere he can play great basketball all the time and win because he's that type of player."
When Johnson asked if he was tampering, Green gave a one-word response.
"Maybe," Green said.

Clearly the NBA took Green's comments seriously. The same can't be said for how Green took his fine.
