Draymond Green won’t come out without a fight on his boiling feud with Dillon Brooks to further ignite the Golden State Warriors- Memphis Grizzlies rivalry.
Responding to Brooks’ recent interview with ESPN Tim Keown that he is not a fan of the Warriors, Green went off, dishing spicy sentiments against the Grizzlies forward.
“[Brooks] said, ‘I don’t like Draymond at all.’ You don’t know me. That’s number one,” Green said.
“He said, ‘I just don’t like Golden State.’ I, quite frankly, wouldn’t like a team that beats me all the time either. That’s number two. ‘I don’t want anything to do with them.’ Quite frankly, you were a little kid in high school watching us win championships. You should be happy that you even witnessed that … You’re a fan. That’s crazy.”
For context, Brooks entered the NBA in 2017 as a second-rounder out of Oregon. That was also the year when the Warriors won their second title on their rising dynasty with Kevin Durant at their side.
As such, Green didn’t hold himself back from continuing to fire his shots against Brooks.
“If you ever wondered why the Memphis Grizzlies is not ready to compete for a championship, look no further than this idiot right here,” Green said. “They actually are depending on this guy to help them win a championship, and he says his game is cool. Quite frankly, that just shows how little you know about basketball. That’s where it gets really interesting.
“Your level of understanding the game of basketball is at a fan level. And you’re running around talking about a dynasty? The dynasty starts after you, not with you. That’s just a fact. I know dynasty-like players. They aren’t clowns. That doesn’t work when building a dynasty.
“Take it from me – I actually know! Clowns don’t work building a dynasty.”
With these words coming from Green, the upcoming bout of both sides again on Thursday can’t be much more anticipated.
