Jason Dumas of Bleacher Report and Kron4 News reported that a Memphis Meteorologist, Jason Sulipeck of Fox News, ranted a racially charged slur in the direction of Draymond Green.

Sulipeck tweeted after Kyle Anderson of the Grizzlies was ejected in Game 3 as he didn’t agree with the ejection. He called Green a “knuckle dragger”, a racial slur that means enraged ape.

Emotions are high right now among teams and fans over the play in question but this right here? @joeysulipeck – unacceptable. Memo to @FOX13Memphis – talk to your mans and check him. This is over the line and I won’t stand for it. This is bullsh-t. https://t.co/RJsLDenByh

Green sportingly laughed it off on his Instagram stories after Dumas tagged him with the report. He said:

“Are you surprised?…Don’t apologize. Stand on it.”

Green has dealt with racially motivated fans before in his illustrious career, and he understands that fans get emotional during the playoffs. Moreover, Fox News has a reputation of promoting white supremacy and discrimination, so one of their reporters committing a racial act wasn’t a surprise.

Draymond Green chimes in on the “knuckle dragging” comment. https://t.co/l7eNQDmM5V

Chris Paul tweeted in anger after Game 3 after a fan pushed his wife in front of his children and touched his mother.

The fan’s behavior was certainly uncalled for, and Paul was seen instantly shouting and abusing the fan. The Mavericks fan was escorted out of the arena, and the organization apologized for the incident.

Chris Paul’s mother had hands put on her by Mavericks fans and his wife was pushed in front of Paul’s children during Game 4 in Dallas on Sunday, per @mcten https://t.co/69Ku8bzYpq

However, CP3 was upset over the fact that players get fined by the league for even saying things to fans, while fans face no repercussions for their pathetic actions. He tweeted:

“Wanna fine players for saying stuff to the fans, but the fans can put they hands on our families….f**k that!!”

Charles Barkley and the co-hosts on “Inside the NBA on TNT” laughed off the foul and flagrant calls in the Warriors-Grizzlies series.

Chuck displayed his frustration with the stoppage of time whenever there’s a foul. That’s because the referees are constantly checking whether any hard foul meets the criteria for a flagrant penalty. He insists that playoff basketball shouldn’t be that soft, and players and coaches need to stop complaining about every foul. He said:

“I’ve been kissed harder than that!”
