Dilma Rousseff almost pulls off a Draymond Green entrance
On trial for possible impeachment, the former Brazilian President tries to do what an NBA All-Star almost did during Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals
According to an article by Reuters on June 14, Rousseff will hope to be catching any part of the Olympics in her home country. Her exact thoughts to foreign reporters was simply this:
“If I am not invited, I will climb a tree to watch the Games.”
Take those translated words with a proverbial grain of salt. If she somehow survives impeachment, she would be around to help close the XXXI Olympiad on Sunday, August 21.
She would be nearly pulling off what Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green almost did last week, after earning a technical foul in a tie-up with LeBron James during the late stages of Game 4 in the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
Green, as one may recall–earned too many technical fouls and was hit with a one-game suspension. He watched Game 5 inside a suite at the adjacent O.Co Coliseum, the baseball home of the Oakland Athletics and was offered a quiet place to sit inside A’s Manager Bob Melvin’s office.
Turned out, Green would be joining his teammates back on the bus for the long plane ride east to Cleveland in time for Game 6 this past Thursday.
But by the time Father’s Day rolled around in Oakland, a team more determined to end an over five decade title drought finally ended in Cleveland–with a dramatic 93-89 upset win over the team that won the most regular season games in a single season in history, the Golden State Warriors who were trying to repeat as NBA champions. Led by LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers became the first team in 33 attempts to come back and win the NBA Finals after trailing three games to one. Quite a story, to say the least.
