Just in time for the final Warriors-Clippers regular season game, Draymond Green has unveiled a line of “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts in his official online shop. Green used the phrase numerous times in an interview with KNBR two weeks ago when the player responded to sarcastic comments made by Doc Rivers by referring to the Clippers coach’s given name. “I approved it,” Green said Friday, the morning after the release of the line of “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts on Athlete Originals that includes three different designs. “A lot of fans kept asking me for it, so the person who runs my store thought that it would be a good idea. “They sent me the design. I approved.” Green’s “Cool Story, Glenn” gear cost $45 for hoodies and $25 for T shirts. Green said that the recent back-and-forth exchange with the division rival coach Rivers was something that was fun for him. Contra Costa Times

“It’s not for a lack of respect,” Green said. “I respect him. It’s fun. Throughout the course of the season, you find things that’s funny. You have to. It’s just fun. It’s no disrespect.” The tit for tat was touched off by the Clippers’ Dahntay Jones bumping into Green on the court during his nationally televised postgame interview March 8 after the Warriors forward had led his team with 23 points in a 106-98 win at Oracle Arena.

What it’s like to be negotiating Draymond Green’s extension with your former boss, Arn Tellem (Green is represented by B.J. Armstrong, who works for Tellem)? Bob Myers: I mean, it's good, (negotiating with) anybody you respect like Arn and B.J. Yeah, I look forward to it. I like those guys. I know them. I think the hardest thing to do is negotiate with somebody that you don't have any prior relationship with. It's much easier to negotiate with somebody you have a history with, that you have a respect for and appreciation for, that you know you're going to get the truth. ESPN.com

Magic Johnson knows greatness when he sees it. The Michigan native led Michigan State to a National Championship before embarking on one of the best careers in NBA history earning MVP honors and championships with the Los Angeles Lakers en route to a spot in the Hall of Fame. And he sees greatness in Saginaw native and current Golden State Warrior Draymond Green. "He's one of the best overall players we have in the game of basketball," Johnson said. "If you take probably LeBron, Klay Thompson, probably right now (Russell) Westbrook. I would say he's one of the Top 5 all-around players in the league." Booth Newspapers
