Golden State Warriors Rumors
The next day, as the Warriors officially introduced the rookie, forward Jordan Bell, at a press conference, GM Bob Myers told a funny story about how Green reacted to their move to add Bell to the championship squad. Myers said Green sent him a text message full of expletives while he was driving home after the draft. Myers continued:
“(Draymond Green) said, ‘What the expletive is your problem?’ Then he said, ‘I have to hear about this expletive on the internet? You didn’t expletive tell me about it.’ “I called him and I said, ‘OK. Alright. Calm down.’ He said, ‘I need his number. I need to talk to him,’ and so I gave it to Draymond. He’s kind of like our team mom, in a way.”
Jordan Bell was out with friends celebrating being drafted and didn’t answer Draymond Green’s call because the number was unfamiliar. Bell said he decided he would text back instead. “I was like, ‘Who is this?'” Bell recalled Friday, when he was formally introduced and given his new No. 2 Golden State jersey at team headquarters.
“He didn’t reply, so I called the number and said, ‘Who is this?’ Then he was like, ‘Yo, I FaceTimed you. Hang up right now and FaceTime me right back. Don’t call me,'” Bell said. “I FaceTimed him, and he didn’t answer. I was like, all right. I waited like five seconds, and I called him back FaceTime, and he answered … and we started talking about it. He was like, ‘Enjoy this night, celebrate. it only happens once, but after this time we have to get back to work. We’re trying to get rings over here.”
