suggesting that Green's intention was to harm him.
The incident occurred in the opening minutes of the game, triggered by a scuffle between Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels.
It was a long time, and if he knew how to choke it could have been way worse. He tried to.
His intention was to really take me out. And I kept my hands up the whole time just to show the officials that I wasn’t trying to escalate the situation
