Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green is not happy with the NBA punishment of Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver.

Sarver was suspended last week for one season and fined $10 million following the league’s investigation into allegations that he ran a toxic work environment.

The NBA found that Sarver “repeated the N-word while recounting the statements of others” at least five times, and “engaged in instances of unfair conduct toward female employees, made numerous gender-related comments on the workplace, made inappropriate comments about the physical appearance of female employees and other female employees and, on several occasions, engaged in inappropriate physical behavior towards male employees.”

Sarver will be allowed to return to the team as owner after his one-year suspension, although there has been significant pushback to that idea in recent days.

Thursday, Jahm, Suns Minority Owner Najafi called on Sarver to step down from his position, and PayPal said it would not renew its sponsorship with the Suns if Sarver becomes involved with the organization after his one-year suspension ends.

Green called for the league to vote on whether Sarver should be forced to sell the team.

“For everything the NBA opposes and stands for, this report that came out last week is the opposite of everything the NBA stands for,” Green said Tuesday.

“So to think that someone like Robert Sarver who acts in this way can continue to represent us is bul—-. You can’t continue to represent many more people than you with those views. By talking to people the way he did. With the treatment of African Americans and women the way he did. That’s not OK.

Green also tore up the idea that Sarver’s use of the N-word when “recounting other people’s statements” was potentially less egregious.

“Stop it. This is ridiculous,” Green said on “The Draymond Green Show” on Tuesday.

“Because the level of comfort you need to have to use the N-word again doesn’t validate or allow Robert Sarver to use the N-word.”

Green isn’t the first player to criticize the league’s punishment of Sarver, with LeBron James of the Lakers and Suns point guard Chris Paul both said the punishment was too light.
