(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Draymond Green doesn’t have many fans in Ohio. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are facing off in their fourth straight NBA Finals. During Game 1 last night, we got the full Draymond experience.Early in the game, the versatile forward got after Cavs superstar LeBron James both verbally and physically. In the second quarter, Green caught up in the eye with a questionable contest of Green at the basket. It left James with a red spot in his left eye.Battle wound.#NBAFinals pic.twitter.com/3UIAgpHMf1— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) June 1, 2018After JR Smith’s unbelievable gaffe that helped get the game to overtime, the Warriors took control of the game. With a pretty safe 10-point lead, Draymond mocked Cavs’ bench forward Kendrick Perkins, referring to him as a cheerleader with by mimicking a dance with imaginary pom poms.With just a few seconds left in the game, Green turned his attention to Tristan Thompson, who was fuming over a shot taken late in the shot clock by Shaun Livingston. Green clapped in the Cavs’ big man’s face, and Thompson responded by hitting him in the face with the ball. He was ejected with a few second left on the clock and the game in hand for the Warriors.When told that Smith insists that he did not forget about the score of the tie game at the end of regulation, Green had another viral moment. He couldn’t help but crack up at that notion.So yeah, Draymond isn’t a favorite of those over in Ohio. As you can imagine, there is a pretty significant crossover between Cavaliers and Ohio State fans.Among them is OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith. He’s never shy about sharing his feelings on Twitter.Zach Smith ripped Draymond Green shortly after the game, calling him a “clown.”Draymond is a clown. Never has he not been. Good player. Not great. Has the luxury of playing with elite players so he’s relevant. ???— Zach S❌ith #Zone6 (@CoachZachSmith) June 1, 2018It probably doesn’t help matters that Green is a very notable former Michigan State star. The Spartans have long been one of the best college basketball programs in the Big Ten, and a rival of the Buckeyes.This definitely has more to do with his NBA career though. Green has a reputation as a dirty player, and it has caused controversy during these four NBA Finals series.last_img read more

Two universities evacuated after reports of suspicious packages

Two universities have been evacuated after reports of suspicious packages being found within their grounds. On Wednesday morning, at 11.40am, the University of Glasgow announced it had evacuated some of its buildings after a suspicious package was found in its mailroom.Hours later, at 2.20pm, Essex Police said the University of Essex had been evacuated after a separate report of a suspicious package. In a statement released on Twitter, the Scottish school said: “Under advice from Police Scotland, a number of buildings on the main University campus have been evacuated as a precautionary measure after a suspicious package was found in the University’s mailroom. Police are dealing with the matter and we will provide regular updates.”At present, the following buildings have been closed: Boyd Orr Building, Mailroom, the OTC (Officer Training Corps) building next to it, Wolfson Medical Building, Bower Building, Isabella Elder Building, James McCune Smith Learning Hub site and the Joseph Black Building.”As a precautionary measure, police have advised the evacuated buildings should remain closed for the remainder of the day. As such, classes in these buildings have been cancelled for the rest of the day.”On Wednesday afternoon, an Essex Police spokeswoman said: “As a precaution we have put a 100m cordon in place and we have evacuated a section of the university and nearby buildings. We await the arrival of the Ministry of Defences’ EOD team.”It is not clear at this stage whether or not the two incidents are linked. In a separate incident, the flagship Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters in Gogarburn in Edinburgh was evacuated as police dealt with a suspicious package.It was reported this package was also discovered in the mailroom, but it later transpired this was a false alarm.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
