HoopsHype Draymond Green rumors


April 21, 2015 Updates

Green is a Defensive Player of the Year candidate and perhaps the best trash-talker in the league. Judging by reading the tweets of @babers-mary, it isn't hard to tell where he got his skills from. "I only have to be mindful and respectful of my son and not be belligerent," Babers-Green told Yahoo Sports in a phone interview early Tuesday morning in Saginaw, Mich. "But I am staying in the guideline of the rules. His rules. "I myself have no rules. I myself will [say something]. But I have to respect him." Yahoo! Sports

Lloyd said on Twitter that Green didn't get his vote for the NBA first- or second- All-Defense team because "a handful of players I polled recently scoffed at the idea of Green even being on the list." Babers-Green responded to Lloyd on Twitter by saying, "Tell him to jump in the Lake w/ weights!" Babers-Green deleted the Tweet, but it still lives on in cyberspace. When asked if Lloyd deserved that response from his mom, Green said: "Yeah. He was hating." Yahoo! Sports

Verbal sparring runs in Green’s family, and his bravado is welcome on a team full of quiet, confident types like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andre Iguodala. “He talks shit to everybody,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s talking to us, himself, the coach, the other bench,” Thompson said. “If you’re having a conversation about potato chips, then he’s going to make sure his opinion [is] heard,” Iguodala added.

“They have a cocky arrogance, like they’ve won something, and they haven’t done nothing,” Green said. “They pretty much been to the same spot in the playoffs we’ve been to. But they have this cockiness like you’re supposed to bow down to them. They ain’t proved nothing. They ain’t earned nothing. What respect have you earned?” But couldn’t any Clippers player say the same thing about Green? “I wouldn’t say that, because I don’t expect anybody to bow down to me,” Green said. “Nor do I expect you to respect me. I’m going to earn your respect. When it’s all said and done, you’ll respect me and our team.” Grantland
