Can the NBA play harsh punishments?

  There is no doubt that it was a technical foul.
  Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green makes three of a tangle with Celtics’ Jaylen Brown near the end of the first half in Game 2 of the National Basketball League (NBA) Finals A small action is an obvious technical foul.
  After Brown’s 3-pointer, the defending Green fell back on Brown. He didn’t turn over immediately, but moved his legs laterally to press on Brown’s upper body and neck; when he tried to stand up, he stretched out his hand and pushed Brown’s shoulder; during the process of standing up, he also pulled Brown’s shorts twice.
  The referee suspended the game, checked the footage, and declared Green had no technical foul. The live commentary and post-match commentary almost unanimously said that Green’s technical foul was certain, but the referee was proper without a penalty.
  It turned out that, less than 5 minutes into the game, Green had already had a technical foul, and the second technical foul would be sentenced to the game and could not continue to participate in the competition. And this is the final, Green is one of the Warriors’ main force. Without a strong Green, the game may lose a lot of viewing value. What’s more, the Warriors have already lost their first home game. If they lose the second game, the entire final may end 4-0. That’s going to disappoint fans and damage the NBA’s allure.
  In contrast, a small technical foul, why take it too seriously? It was precisely with this in mind that Green deliberately rampaged, disturbed the opponent’s military morale, and made great contributions to the Warriors’ recovery. And this kind of intentional violation of the rules is not the first time in the NBA.
  In the last 20 seconds of Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, when the Chicago Bulls trailed the Utah Jazz by one point, Jordan dribbled the ball all the way back to the top of his own three-second zone after stealing the basketball from the opponent’s main player Karl Malone under the opponent’s basket. Dodging defense Brian Russell and hitting a nice light jumper capped a near-perfect end to his second three-peat.
  Said to be almost perfect because Jordan had obvious pushing movements in the process of dodging Russell. However, the referee did not blow the whistle, nor did the on-site commentary mention it. In the countless video replays and comments since then, everyone has kept it a secret. A perfect myth survives in this less-than-perfect ambiguity.
  Just when the NBA referee turned a blind eye to Green’s apparent foul, an employee of Disneyland Paris rushed to an idle performance platform and took a tourist who was proposing to his girlfriend off the platform without question, strictly maintaining the park rules.
  However, after the video was posted on the news social network Reddit, it drew a chorus of condemnation from Disney employees who upheld the rules. Disney hastily issued an apology statement, saying it would compensate customers who were troubled. When mainstream media followed the story, Disney’s questions included whether the employee was punished, including firing.
  Disney, which claims to be “the happiest (happiest) place on earth”, would destroy a happy moment that a customer may have prepared for a long time for a small rule that was innocuous at the time, and may cast a shadow on the happiness of a lifetime?
  Most people long to live in a well-ordered society with clear laws and regulations, and clear rewards and punishments, but the regulations are inevitably too rigid or too broad, while people are alive. The interaction between living people will be ever-changing and colorful, which constitutes a magnificent picture of human life.
  Those who advocate severe punishments may worry: If we don’t guard against the slightest, will we not lead to the lawless Greens running around the stadium, and the tourists who are proposing marriages running around the stage?
  In fact, as long as the rule of law becomes the general form of society, the occasional Internet opening will not only prevent disasters, but also be full of human touch. Didn’t Green be a lot better in the next few games?
