Draymond Green Blasts Warriors Teammates During Profanity-Laced Halftime Tirade

ATLANTA, GA - FEBRUARY 22: Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors reacts after being charged with a foul in the final minutes of their 102-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena on February 22, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Draymond Green exploded on his teammates during a “profanity-laced” halftime tirade according to ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters. The Warriors were trailing the Thunder by 11 at halftime, and Green had a rough 1st half, missing all of his three shots.

According to Salters, Green was screaming so loudly, people could hear him in the hallway.

“I am not a robot, I know I can play, you have me messed up right now, if you don’t want me to shoot, I won’t shoot the rest of the game.”

And then, it got worse, according to Salters: “he was daring people, threatening people, ‘Come sit me down.'” Green, who leads the NBA in triple doubles, signed an $85 million extension last offseason.

It’s unclear what precipitated this. It’s unclear if these outbursts from Green – a great trash talker – are regularly. But during an NBA season where the 52-5 Warriors are the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best storylines in the league, this is the type of story that will have legs for awhile.
