Did Draymond Green intentionally kick Steven Adams in the groin?

He says no, and here’s some supporting evidence.

Twitter user @TEN000HOURS:

Apparently, Green is just reckless all the time. That doesn’t excuse his kick to Adams, but it adds context.

I would have no problem with the NBA suspending Green. He kicked Adams in the groin. That’s indisputable. Intent matters, but so does the fact that Green has repeatedly invited this outcome. Just because he never kicked someone in the groin previously doesn’t justify it. He was playing with fire, and his luck finally ran out.

Whether or not the league suspends him, he really needs to stop doing this.
