Diamond Leung: Draymond Green on if he thinks about not being so aggressive with player wearing mask: "No. I'm still going to go after the ball. He ain't play timid scoring 22 pts & changing the game. So what am I going to play timid for if he's got a mask on?" Twitter @diamond83
Jim Rome couldn't help but tell Green three times on the air that the 20-year-old Michigan State sophomore had charisma uncommon for someone his age on that stage. Green was flabbergasted. "Draymond was so floored to where he was like, 'Did you hear him? He can't be talking about me. I'm just this little guy basically, and you're talking about me?' " recalled Mary Babers-Green, Green's mother. San Jose Mercury-News
When Rome asked Green about a report that Oregon was looking to hire Izzo, Green didn't flinch and replied, "Who doesn't want the greatest, you know? Every NBA team wants LeBron James." "Anecdotal, a lot of swagger, a lot of confidence, but not in any way insulting," Rome said after Green was off the air. "You never see a kid that young that good anecdotally or honest."

Warriors forward David Lee served as a spectator during the first-round series against the Pelicans, but he is ready to play after recovering from a lower back strain. In a potential Western Conference semifinal series against Memphis, which leads its first-round series against Portland 3-0, Lee could very well see action. Draymond Green picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter of each of the Warriors' past two wins against Memphis and was replaced by Lee, who ended up playing double-digit minutes in both games. "It's a team that plays big and that we're going to need every big on the roster ready to go, myself included," Lee said of Memphis. San Jose Mercury-News
Drummond may have violated tampering rules when he tweeted Monday he wanted to play with Warriors and former Michigan State forward Draymond Green. "I want @Money23Green on my team." The tweet has been deleted. Detroit News
