Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green said he was pleased when he found out that Cleveland's Tristan Thompson wouldn't be suspended for Game 2 of the NBA Finals following their scuffle late in Game 1.replica nike nfl jerseys

"I'd rather a guy not get suspended," he said after practice Saturday. "Them suspending somebody else don't make me feel good. That's in the past. It is what it is. I don't want nobody to get suspended. You know, that does nothing for us or for me."15

Thompson was fined $25,000 for shoving the ball into Green's face after receiving a flagrant foul 2, an automatic ejection.

Thompson was hit with the flagrant for elbowing Shaun Livingston, but it has since been downgraded to a flagrant 1.

"I'm happy I'm able to play," Thompson said. "The NBA got to do what they got to do in terms of fining. At the end of the day, I want to be out there with my teammates, and I'll be able to do that in Game 2 ... They made the right call by letting me play."

The instigation for Thompson's interaction with Green was when the Warriors forward began taunting Thompson after he was tossed from the game with 2.6 seconds remaining.

"It doesn't affect me. It doesn't really bother me at all," Thompson said of Green's antics. "He's making himself look crazy. But that's what he does, that's what he brings to this team, that's what makes him valuable to the Warriors in terms of bringing that toughness, that grit. So I don't blame him. Every team needs a guy like that."where can i buy cheap nfl jerseys

"But I can meet him in the streets any day. You can say somebody'll meet you at the bus. I'm not -- keep taking care of my family, man. I ain't gonna meet you at the bus. But summers, you can meet anybody anywhere. So all the 'meet me outside' and 'meet me at the bus,' I ain't planning to give up no money for that. But you wanna see me somewhere else, that's fine -- anytime."
