Hello sports fans! My name is Rocco Altieri and I am in 4th grade at Wandell Elementary School in Saddle River, New Jersey.  My favorite sports to watch and play are basketball, football, and soccer and I’m excited to be a guest writer for The Bleacher Boys.

Today I will be talking about Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. I can’t believe that he got thrown out of another game after getting 2 technical fouls!  It happened in the Golden State vs Washington game early in the 2017 NBA Season. I think it was Bradley Beal’s fault because he slapped Draymond in the face. Even though I am a Warriors fan, I still think Draymond Green should have gotten a technical. After Beal slapped him in the face, Draymond went after him and took him to the ground. It was a disgrace to the game of basketball.  During the scuffle, Beal practically ripped the jersey off of Draymond Green’s back. That wasn’t cool, especially because I thought Draymond was wearing one of coolest Warrior jerseys I have ever seen!

I don’t think Bradley Beal should’ve done that because it is not the right thing to do. It was not a good idea for either of them to get violent during a sport that is not supposed to be rough. But as any NBA fan knows, this wasn’t Draymond’s first time in a fight and probably won’t be the last.

Fights happen a lot in the NBA and this particular one reminded me of another fight I saw. It was the time when Hassan Whiteside of the Miami Heat dunked on Alex Len of the Phoenix Suns and then they tackled each other. They both got kicked out for the rest of the game, just like Draymond and Beal did. This is my opinion about Draymond Green’s latest ejection during the Golden State vs Washington game. I hope they keep it clean the rest of the season.

Rocco loves the Golden State Warriors, The NY Giants and The NY Yankees.  You can find him playing for the Ho-Ho-Kus Saddle River basketball team, The Chargers Flag Football team and The Ho-Ho-Kus Saddle River Rec Soccer team, The Tomahawks.  Rocco spends his summer crushing sports at Camp Winadu in Massachusetts.
