Following a contentious game between the Golden State Warriors and the Charlotte Hornets, Draymond Green delivered a scathing critique of Grant Williams, suggesting that his propensity for trash talk has been detrimental to his game.

The game, which ended in a 97-84 win for the Warriors, saw tensions rise in the closing moments as players from both teams engaged in a physical confrontation, resulting in ejections for Lester Quinones and Grant Williams, as well as a technical foul for Miles Bridges.

The tensions started with Quinones scoring a layup with 12 seconds on the clock when the game was already decided.

Green specifically called out Williams for his actions during the game, highlighting his tendency to engage in unnecessary tough-guy behavior that ultimately backfired.

“I don’t really understand why people get so mad at somebody scoring at the end of the game,” Green said postgame. “It’s like, this dumb unofficial unwritten rule that everybody get mad. If y’all were winning by 13 points, would you get mad if he lay the ball up? I doubt it. And so it’s kind of a like a sore loser type thing. Miles [Bridges] is my guy. That’s my little brother. So I’m not going to sit here and go in on Miles. Miles can do no wrong to me.

“But Grant Williams got to stop it, man. He can’t keep being like this tough guy is going absolutely wrong for him. Like he’s a really nice guy and for some reason he keep like trying to jump on the unlikable side. And I must tell you it’s not always fun over here, it’s not always good time. So I don’t know, man, he need to figure it out because, boy, I mean talking too much kind of got you out of Dallas, like, overdoing it. He over there talking too much now.

“So you might want to slow down and stop for all the tough guy stuff. You want to be the president of [the Players Association] and stuff, man, you can’t be out here doing all that stuff. You don’t see CJ McCollum running around being a tough guy. Chris [Paul] was tough as hell as the Players Association president, but like CP six feed like, you got to have some nastiness to you to be that great and be six feet tall.

“I don’t know what Grant Williams out here doing, man. That dude is. He doing it to everybody this year and he came over to our bench, thought he was about to have a friend, ain’t no friends for you over here my man. You got to go down there and talk to the other guys. You can’t come over here and talk to us about what just happened with our players. No, we support him.

“Also there’s a two second differential in the shot clock. Would you like us to take another turnover? We got enough turnovers on this game as it is with 22 turnovers. You want to get 23? You also cannot press down 13 with a minute to go. And then somebody shoot a layup with 22 seconds to go and you get mad.

“With 2:45 we took our stars out, go sit down, it’s over. Game is over. Go sit down. they didn’t want to go sit down, so if y’all still playing, then play, don’t stop now because there’s 22 seconds left and you finally feel like it’s out of reach. Clearly we thought it was out of reach at 2:45, which is why Steve took out everybody.

“So now you think it’s out of reach it’s okay like, oh it ends now like, no it doesn’t work like that. And so I’m really sick of guys with this. Like, oh year you scored at the end like, bro you should have did that a long time ago. And yeah, man, pray for Grant Williams. Oh man.”
