Why Bob Myers barred Draymond Green from resuming Warriors-Lakers Game 6?

Draymond Green is a professional basketball player who plays for the Golden State Warriors and with a four-time NBA Championship, and four-time NBA All-Star, he is literally the star player of the team.

During the recent game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors, the player was removed by their GM due to an injury and he couldn’t take part in the rest of the game.

So, it is time to learn more about why Green was barred by the GM from further playing.

Why did Bob Myers bar Draymond Green from resuming Warriors-Lakers Game 6?

The Los Angeles Lakers had a dramatic 122-101 win in their recent match against the Golden State Warriors. Players of both teams did exceptionally well and tried their best to keep the glory of their individual teams intact.

Bob Myers is the general manager of the Warriors and this man is called the architect of the team followed by his insatiable hunger to lead it to the top. And stepping into the team’s life, the man had done many wonders in terms of its development both on and off the court.

Now, talking about Draymond Green, during the fourth quarter he suffered a calf cramp and had to receive treatment and go through inspection. And as he felt quite okay soon afterward the incident, he was all set to jump into the court again. But GM didn’t let him do so and he left the court when only six minutes were remaining in the play.

In the post-game conference, when the power forward was asked about the reason for not returning to the play he said, ‘I would’ve gone back in the game, Bob stopped me. He said, ‘We’re down 22 points with six minutes to go. You go back out there and you tear your calf and do rehab the rest of the summer trying to chase a 22-point lead. It’s not smart, and we’re not doing it.’

As for Bob, he was anxious that his star player might face more injuries on the court which might keep him away from making an appearance in the most important games of the season, so had to keep him barred from re-entering the court.

Well, it is true that the Lakers pretty much broke the Warrior’s hearts in a dramatic victory with a large difference in points. However, it wouldn’t be a sin if we consider that the game would have been more exciting to watch if Green was still there playing till the last second.
