Draymond Green’s mom fires back at Stephen A. Smith

Draymond Green

Like his All-Star son, Draymond Green, Mary Babers has a never-back-down personality, and she showed that side of her when she fired back at Stephen A. Smith on Twitter as a response to a comment made by the ESPN personality on-air that she did not like.

Back in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, Babers took to Twitter to chastise the defending champions’ performance. Many took Babers’ comments as a targeted dig at Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who finished the game with a game-high 38 points. When someone tried to call her out for missing out the fact that Durant had an efficient shooting from the field, Babers shot back and tried to lecture him a little of what she knows about basketball.

Stephen A. Smith, meanwhile, during Friday’s edition of First Take, floated the theory that Babers probably was only echoing something Draymond Green had told her, that what she was only serving as Green’s puppet.

To that, Babers has this heated reaction:

Green has not scored a lot of points in the series with Houston so far. He only put up five points in Game 1 and six points in Game 2, going 3-for-10 in those contests. Green, however, is not the only Warrior struggling from the field. Two-time league MVP Stephen Curry is also catching some heat for averaging just 17.0 points and shooting only 15.4 percent from deep in the conference finals.

Babers is going certainly going to watch closely Game 3 of the series this Sunday.
