While most NBA players feel honored when other professional athletes from different sports rock their jerseys, the same cannot be said about Draymond Green when he saw a picture of Conor McGregor wearing a Warriors uniform.
The 27-year-old Michigan State product took to his Instagram account to post a picture of the UFC star with a number 23 Golden State Warriors jersey on, and sent a message to him saying he wants him to remove it as they are not supporting him, and are rooting for Floyd Mayweather Jr. instead.
The Notorious responded to him in the comments sections with an NSFW reply. He also said that the jersey was not Green’s but C.J. Watson‘s, and called him out for showing a lot of disrespect to him.
“That’s C.J Watson mate. I don’t know who the f–k you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school.”
“Now ask yourself why I’m rocking C.J. when I don’t know or give a f–k about basketball. I dribble heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid.”
McGregor is scheduled to fight the five-division world champion on August 26, in what is considered as one of the most anticipated boxing matches in history. It will be the first professional boxing match of the Irish MMA fighter, while Mayweather is gunning for his 50th win and remain unbeaten.
Safe to say, Green will not be cheering for him by then, as he is clearly not a fan of him.
