Last night’s Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans game produced a roller coaster journey for the fans, but Draymond Green surpassed all the extraordinary by demonstrating bizarre actions during the game at Chase Center.
After trailing by a 17-point deficit in the first half, the Warriors were able to turn the game upside down and snatch the game from the Pelicans with an 11-point margin of victory. Star point guard Stephen Curry was the heavy contributor to this incredible win, but his teammate also grabbed a handful of unwanted attention.
Draymond was involved in scuffles with opponent players on two occasions that gained him notoriety for showing physical strength. He also kicked his opponent in the head, which made the officials stop the game in order to control the players.
Unlike other sportspersons, the Warriors’ power forward was unapologetic and expressed his arrogant philosophy in the postgame interview. “I just told them they weren’t cut like that; that’s not what they do,” he said. “We’re all good guys; I’m not acting like I’m a bad guy. I like to talk and play. That really gets me going, and that’s not everybody’s game.”
"I like to talk and play. … That's not everybody's game."

Kicking people in head isn't everyone's game either.

Another fan wrote, “If he wasn’t drafted by the Warriors, he would have been out of the league six years ago. The boy is trash. All he’s good at is running his mouth.”

Even though he provided for the hosts when it was much needed, the fans weren’t appreciating his trash talk at all. However, there are a large number of fans who like him for trash-talking, and in the end, the result matters above all.
