When it comes to Draymond Green, you never know what will come out of his mouth.
Every time something happens around the league the forward out of Michigan always has to put his two cents in. We saw it when Green called Kelly Olynyk a dirty player, but the most recent was the beef between he and Richard Jefferson.
Green stated that Cleveland’s opponents haven’t been competing at the highest level. I mean we all know the Eastern Conference has been a cake walk for the Cavs in the past, but Jefferson thought otherwise:
“Somebody that decided to start a podcast after we did wanted to comment on the quality of teams that we’re playing. Which I think is just not very nice because obviously we know what Portland and Utah have accomplished this year, or just in general. I can imagine with [Jusuf] Nurkic being out obviously Portland was at full strength. With George Hill being out, obviously Utah was at full strength. Mike Conley being out a couple years ago: full strength. Cavs not having Kevin [Love] or Kyrie [Irving] at full strength. So at the end of the day to criticize what other people are doing I think it’s just best that you take care of whatever’s in front of you. But you should never criticize what other people are doing. You should never criticize what other teams are doing. At the end of the day if you are working with an efficient group of guys that are handling their business, then you should take it. But you should also look at, ‘Have we been playing the highest level of teams every single year everybody at full strength?’ before you go and criticize other people.”
Green seems to get a rise out of everyone whether it’s kicking someone between the legs or criticizing everyone who isn’t a Golden State Warrior.
For any of you who were curious as to why Jefferson went on the offense, here’s what Green said:
“I thought teams would compete a little harder. I just watched San Antonio-Houston. I like to watch good basketball. When you watch Cleveland play, you’re only watching one side of the good basketball. That’s kind of weak. I like watching a good game, not even necessarily that it’s going to be a close game. I like to watch teams playing good basketball. When you watch them, you watch one team playing good basketball and everybody else do something. I don’t know what that something is.”
Almost makes me want to see another Cavs/Warriors final match-up…….Almost.
