We didn’t hear a single lie.
Listen, we’ll be the first to tell you that Draymond Green can be a huge pain in the a$$. He’s overly-demonstrative to the point of clownery, he complains about EVERY call the refs make, and he has a sordid history of out-of-pocket antics on the court. That said, we’ve never known him to be a liar or afraid to his mind.
Last night, those attributes were on full display when he read the NBA and the individual franchises the riot act for the way they treat players as opposed to how players are expected to act when they are publicly embarrassed by trade announcements and rumors. In this instance, Dray was set off by the Cleveland Cavaliers sending Andre Drummond back to the locker room to change into street clothes effectively communicating that he was soon-to-be no longer part of the team.
KRON’s Jason Dumas reporting:
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst, the Cavs will be moving forward with Jarrett Allen as their center and don’t want Drummond to overexert himself limited minutes unnecessarily. The quiet part in that polysyllabic word salad is that if Andre were to get hurt, the Cavs trade potential could significantly decrease. However, anyone who watches the NBA regularly knows what would have been said about Drummond had he demanded a trade and given up on his team.
It’s a dirty game.
