Took 67 seconds for a scuffle. Draymond Green and James Harden dust up under the rim. Refs reviewing.

Draymond Green gets a technical not even two minutes into the game.

This is laugh out loud funny. Green is easily one of the most hatable and entertaining guys to play basketball in the last decade. Am I a fan of Draymond Green? No, but I respect the fact he got a technical foul practically a minute into the game. (SLIDESHOW: Baller Babes: These Gorgeous Women Love Basketball)
I mean, watching tape, I thought that was me out there — not so much the fact Green looks like a physically dominant athlete or what you’d expect from an NBA star, more like the fact he just went right at Harden without a moment of hesitation. This is when the NBA is most entertaining. We need players out here looking like me circa-2009 high school basketball. Give me less great defense and offense. Give me more hothead plays. That’s what the fans want.
