Draymond Green has earned a reputation for being one of the more candid NBA players. He plays with his heart on his sleeve and tells it how it is off the court.
On Sunday, Green went into full Draymond mode, as a reporter pressed him for questions about the Houston floods. According to the reporter, over the last two years, when the Warriors and Rockets play in the postseason in Houston, the Rockets win each game after a flood in Houston, while the Warriors win non-flood games. The reporter asks Green if there is any legitimate correlation between natural disasters and basketball results.
Green lays in on the dude:
"You're trying to get a controversial statement out of me," Green answers. "But you're not because I feel sorry for the people of Houston. People are losing their homes, losing their cars, losing their lives, losing loved ones, and you're trying to get a controversial statement out of me ... you're not getting that out of me."
Green mentions this reporter asked a similar question at practice. He also believes the reporter is trying to get Green tied up referencing the three-pointers the Warriors "rain" on their opponents. Instead, Green turns the press conference into a moment of recognition for the people struggling in Houston.
Don't mess with Draymond.
