Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green recently returned to the court after serving a five-game suspension for an incident involving Rudy Gobert, where he placed the Utah Jazz player in an extended headlock during a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Renowned analyst and two-time NBA champion, Kenny Smith, expressed his strong opinion on Green’s behavior, stating that it is beyond the time for apologies.

“There is no more apologizing… At 22, 23, 24 years old, you can keep apologizing. But at this stage of his career, and a champion, we should be out of the apology stages of his career… He keeps crossing [the line],” Smith remarked on Inside the NBA on TNT, per ClutchPoints.

Green, known for his intensity on the court, has faced criticism for repeated controversial incidents, such as punching his ex-teammate Jordan Poole in the face and stomping on Domantas Sabonis.
