Say what you want about Draymond Green.
He may be uncouth to some. He may be dirty to others.
But you can never accuse Green of being a phony.
In case you missed it, Green called out the NBA’s treatment of its players.
“I would like to talk about something that’s really bothering me, and it’s the treatment of players in this league. To watch Andre Drummond, before the game, sit on the sidelines, then go to the back, and to come out in street clothes because a team is going to trade him, it’s bulls—.”
Here is more of what Green had to say last night:
I’m with Draymond here.
You can’t tell me there is not any hypocrisy from the media and fans when they castigate players for wanting a change of scenery and praise organizations for moving a player who is not at the end of his deal.
We see this in the NFL, where owners dole out non-guaranteed contracts, and therefore can get away with cutting players whenever they damn well please. But don’t be Deshaun Watson for wanting out of a shitty situation in Houston (right, Brett Favre?).
The owners have succeeded in pulling a fast one on the media and the fans. Props to Draymond for calling out the hypocrisy.
