Draymond Green trolls Chris Webber after he says he wouldn’t start in other teams
Draymond Green might have been too busy locking up LaMarcus Aldridge and gobbling up rebounds during a crucial Game 5 against the San Antonio Spurs, but never too distracted to not hear the hoopla during the national broadcast.
TNT analyst Chris Webber noted the importance of Green’s motor, but ended up bad-mouthing his prowess at the offensive end.
“This is the impact Draymond Green has,” Webber said during a second quarter timeout. “Yes, if he was on other teams and expected to score, he may not be in the starting lineup on certain teams. But on this team, he’s one of their most valuable players.”

Green, who is boasting an 11.4-point average in the postseason, noted he didn’t need to score the ball like others to make into a starting lineup.
“I’m fine without scoring the ball, I think I created a new way for guys in this league for where you don’t have to score 20 points in this league to be an All-Star or be a star in this league,” said Green during his post-game press conference.
But Green wouldn’t stop without leaving a parting shot right in the jewels — not those jewels — but the ones that hurt the most to players like Webber, who never won a championship ring before concluding their careers.
“It is what it is. That’s fine, and my jewelry fit well,” said Green, drawing a nod from teammate Kevin Durant. “I’m doing pretty good.”
“Much love to C-Webb, though, from Michigan — state of Michigan, you know, we good.”

Durant promptly left the press conference after Green’s comments in a drop-the-mic way, having secured a second-round ticket after beating the San Antonio Spurs 99-91 in Game 5, to clinch a 4-1 series win.
