What would you do to get Draymond to pick up a technical?

Jake: Me, personally? I’d consider shaving my beard.

Raby: Constant contact. It’s not just a website. I’d have Hill or Diallo always on his back, always a hand at his hip, pushing a little hard on the boxout. There might be a few foul calls that way, but not ever letting up is a quick way to get him to lose his temper. Maybe insult his mom too? I don’t know, just try whatever.

Luis: Can I cheat and say that I copy whatever Lance Stephenson has been doing to Lebron James? Flopping, blowing in his ear, definitely not mentioning snapchat to him, holding a basketball that I take from him in a deadball situation as though it were the severed head of my mortal enemy, you know, the usual. The way I see it, if Lance can get Lebron to crack, I imagine it works on pretty much everyone else pretty well.

Jason: I think that Draymond normally gets so frustrated playing against the Pelicans because he knows that Davis just demolishes him in every time they match up. So just continue going to what works! Attack him relentlessly with the ball in AD’s hands. Then midway through the first quarter when AD’s already in double figures, get Rondo involved too. Constant trash talk. If you get inside his head, then he’ll probably get inside his own head. Frustrated, he’ll start resorting to cheap tricks and blabbing to refs. That’ll probably be easier than sweeping the Blazers.
