Rockets’ Gerald Green blames media for his suspension
Fresh off his two-game suspension for aggressively entering the LA Clippers locker room last week, Gerald Green has an axe to grind with the media.
Speaking before a game against the Miami Heat on Monday, the Houston Rockets swingman said that he did “not want to talk about” his recent ban but did have this to say about role of the press in the incident.
“The media blew that up,” said Green, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. “That’s all I have to say. If it weren’t for the media being there, I would never have got suspended.”
Green, who just signed with Houston at the end of December, was suspended two games along with teammate Trevor Ariza for the Jan. 15 incident. No other members of the Rockets or the Clippers were punished by the league.
If Green blames the media for getting him suspended, we wonder if that includes the part that social media played in the entire episode as well.
