The Golden State Warriors lost to the Milwaukee Bucks at Fiserv Forum 128-111 Tuesday night. However, it was an altercation between Draymond Green and a fan who was later ejected from the game that stole the show.

In the third quarter, Green and a fan had some choice words. Following a complaint by the Warriors' star forward the fan was ejected, as the Bucks said they are currently investigating the incident and consulting with the NBA, according to CBS News.

The 2017 Defensive Player of The Year "engaged in a back-and-forth" with the fan at Fiserv Forum, while Milwaukee's star Giannis Antetokounmpo was attempting free-throws, according to a CBSSports report. The report also mentioned shortly after the verbal skirmish, Green discussed the incident with the referees, who immediately agreed that the fan needed to leave the arena. Fiserv Forum security was then contacted, and the fan was then escorted out of the arena.

Green claims "[They said] some threatening stuff to my life." The four-time All-Star added, "I was this close to really going back and diving all the way in, but I just went back and told the official. And when I told the official what he said, he was like 'Oh, he's gotta get out of here.' And he got out of here."

After the game the four-time NBA champion told reporters “Some people look at NBA players like they’re superhuman." Green added “I think it’s just one of those things when you can hold it in and get to the ref and get them out, it’s great.”

The Golden State Warriors dropped to 14-14, a lack luster start to the 2022-2023 season for the defending NBA Finals champions. The Warriors are in fourth place in the Pacific division and will take on the Indiana Pacers (14-14) tonight at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.
