Draymond Green opened up about the trash talking he is having with Russell Westbrook on the court.

Green admitted that Westbrook is a guy that will never back down and will always talk back.

“A guy like Russ is always on 100 percent. It’s never 70 percent or 60 percent. He’s always on 100. I start yelling at him, like, ‘We don’t need to beat them. Russ is going to beat them. Like, ‘uh-oh, there he goes. He’s about to shoot them out of the game.

The he comes back at me like, ‘You can’t shoot. You can’t play,’ It’s just… that’s one of the guys I enjoy going back and forth with the most.

I have a lot of respect for him, but Russ is a guy who is going to keep talking back,” Green said as part of a recent one-on-one interview session, via Clutchpoints.

Green and Westbrook are considered two of the top competitors in the NBA.
