Video: Warriors’ Draymond Green savagely trashed by Charles Barkley
The Golden State Warriors are struggled against the Los Angeles Lakers due to the lack of talent they have on the team — and Draymond Green did not do them any favors. In fact, the quality of his play has affected how others perceive him. Charles Barkley was not shy about letting Green know about his thoughts of him.
During one of the transitions by the NBA on TNT crew, Ernie Johnson talked about how poor Green has performed during their game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Barkley answered matter-of-factly that such a performance has come to be expected out of him.
Green was a key component for the Warriors’ successes over the past four years, but his weaknesses have come into full display this season. With no Stephen Curry nor Klay Thompson to bail him, the forward tried and failed to carry the Golden State offense. He’s averaging 8.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.2 assists a night. While these are OK numbers, they aren’t nearly enough to make the Warriors contend in the West.
Of course, things will change once the Splash Brothers get back in the team. But the Dubs will have to make do with Draymond until then.
