Although this is a 49ers’  blog, we are going to begin with the Warriors’ Draymond  Green. Hopefully, the reason will become clear as we go.

You may have heard that Green — in a total surprise to us all — said something controversial. Talking about Suns’ guard Devin  Booker, Green praised the player on a TNT broadcast, but then added, “They got to get Book out of Phoenix. It’s not good for him. It’s not good for his career.”

Which caused TNT host Ernie Johnson to wonder if Green wasn’t violating league rules about encouraging or suggesting trades. Isn’t that tampering?

“Maybe,” Green said.

Well the verdict is in. Yes, that is tampering. Green has been fined $50,000.

So just another day in the life of @Money23Green? Maybe, but it overlooks the point Green was making, which is also the point we want to make with the 49ers. Green has been saying this about Phoenix for months.

When things go bad, Green says, “No one ever blames the situation. It’s always the kid. No one ever blames the shitty franchises.”

That’s a great call. Do
