Warriors’ Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala ripped for making fun of Jazz’s Rudy Gobert
On Friday, Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert became emotional when discussing his All-Star snub with reporters, wiping tears from his face as he walked away from the scrum. Gobert began to waver when he talked about how his mother called him up crying when she heard the news, which led to him becoming overcome with emotion as he stepped away. Golden State Warriors players Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala then both had corny reactions to Gobert’s sadness, with both guys taking to Twitter to poke fun at the 26-year-old.
The players were then ripped for their attempt at humor:
Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Isaiah Thomas making fun of Rudy Gobert for crying as he described how upset his mother was about this on the phone is disgusting.

This is what is really bothersome about the whole thing. Gobert was not crying because he was snubbed from the All-Star Game; he was clearly just upset over the fact that his mother was so bothered by it.
Lillard, unlike Draymond/Iguodala/Thomas, coming to Gobert's defense here. https://t.co/SBitKP6758

But the best Twitter response to Draymond is definitely those who brought up the fact that he called up Kevin Durant from the parking lot immediately after the Warriors lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.
Draymond Green LITERALLY called Kevin Durant CRYING in the parking lot 😭😭😭

Very torn between wanting to laugh at Draymond Green's good tweet and wanting to laugh at the messenger being the guy who called KD crying from the parking lot because LeBron was too good for the best regular season team ever

Yeah. I think it’s safe to say that you lost this one, Draymond.
And this is just another reason for people to root against the Warriors.
