The NBA finally took a harsh stand against Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green.

After his latest ejection on Tuesday night for smacking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic, the NBA took extreme action against the four-time NBA champion by suspending Green indefinitely in a rare extent of punishment against a player.

“This outcome takes into account Green’s repeated history of unsportsmanlike acts,” the league stated in a press release.

Tuesday’s incident marked the 19th career ejection for the 33-year-old, who took time to apologize for the swing after the game.
