10. James Harden Eye Gouge
As mentioned in the previous incident, Green has a long and nasty history of gouging opponents in the eyes. He poked James Harden in the eyes not once but twice in the second round of the 2019 NBA playoffs. This left the Rockets star with contusions and swelling after Green inflicted genuine pain.
Harden also suffered a lacerated eyelid from one of Green’s fingernails. This could have been much worse if Green’s nail made contact with the eyeball. Harden could have experienced a detached retina or something even more serious (via NBC Sports). This was yet another incident when Green put his opponents’ long-term health at risk with his violent play, and it’s clearly a pattern when he plays some of the biggest stars in the NBA.
