Draymond Green has decided he will not by distracted by the assault charges pending against him, and he doesn’t see a reason to adjust his personality on the fly.

Talking with ESPN, Green gave his thoughts on why he feels it’s important not to be distracted:

“Being me has gotten me this far. My attorneys are handling everything. Leave it in their hands and I got an opportunity to compete for a gold medal. You don’t let any type of distraction get in the way of that.


Team USA is certainly not as strong as it has been in previous years, and it’s going to take every player including Green to stay focused, to bring home the gold medal this summer.

Green faces charges of misdemeanor assault and battery charges, from a July incident with former Michigan State football player, and fellow alumni, Jermaine Edmondson. Green’s court case was pushed back to accommodate him joining the tournament with Team USA in Rio this summer.
