Warriors fans react after Draymond Green spotted training with Miles Bridges amid domestic violences charges
Miles Bridges is facing serious charges both for domestic violence and for child abuse. For better or worse, it looks like Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is staying in his corner.
The Charlotte Hornets swingman has been hit with three related felony charges after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend, Michelle Johnson, with their two children present to witness the said altercation.
After the recent news that Bridges had pled “not guilty” to the allegations, he was seen in an Instagram story with Draymond at what appears to be a camp being held by Green’s former Michigan State Spartans teammate Travis Walton. The two have remained close since both entering the NBA with the Warriors star serving as mentor to the younger Bridges:

It didn’t take long before the unspoken rendezvous spread across social media, with various Warriors fans chiming in on Draymond Green being there for Bridges. Majority of the reactions were tilted negative, with disparaging remarks against Green for still associating himself with the alleged abuser:
people defending Draymond for working out with miles bridges disgust me fr… i don’t care if him and Wiggins aren’t that close, that is still his teammate’s in law and Draymond should know better. How you going to hang out / workout with an abuser like Miles??

Draymond Green is pathetic for working out with Miles Bridges. You should be cancelled immediately. As well as your podcast. @Money23Green @MilesBridges @BR_NBA @NBA @NBCSWarriors @warriorsworld @malika_andrews

Some voices were also quick to point out that the girlfriend of Green’s Warriors teammate Andrew Wiggins is actually the sister of the alleged victim in the ordeal and mother to Bridges’s children.
I fucking hate draymond
Also found out that Andrew Wiggins fiancé is the sister of Miles Bridges abuse victim
If someone can make any sense out of what Dray is doing with Bridges I’ll give you a million dollars. Shits fucked

But not everybody was peeved to see Draymond maintain his relationship with Miles. Some chose to see the good in their meet-up, with the Warriors star being there to potentially steer his friend to the proper mindset amidst all this. Others also backed Green for just being a loyal friend despite the accusations.
I seen people mad Draymond was working out with Miles Bridges and it’s funny because Draymond is the exact type of dude Miles Bridges needs to be talking to.
He might be giving him some good game he obviously needs.
Takes a village.

Why are people upset about this? @Money23Green probably being a vet and trying to mentor Miles Bridges. Draymond definitely the right person Miles Bridges needs to be talking to. https://t.co/OnGXqqLDfS

They went to the same school, they have a brother type relationship. I wouldn’t expect my brother to turn his back on me at a time like this. I respect @Money23Green for this…@MilesBridges deserve his day in court like everybody else
