Draymond Green is a player that has certainly attracted some negative attention in the past. Overall, he isn’t exactly the most popular player in the NBA. A lot of guys don’t care for how he plays, and they certainly don’t care for his trash talk. However, he is a player with four NBA titles to his name, so it is very hard to speak ill of him. That said, Dillon Brooks did just that during a recent interview with ESPN. As you will see, his comments were less than complimentary.
“I don’t like Draymond at all,” Brooks told ESPN. “I just don’t like Golden State. Don’t like anything to do with them. Draymond talks a lot. Gets away with a lot, too. His game is cool—with Golden State—but if you put him anywhere else, you’re not going to know who Draymond is. He plays with heart, plays hard, knows the ins and outs of their defense. I guess that’s why they like him over there.”

Subsequently, Green hopped on his podcast and laced into the Memphis Grizzlies star. Overall, he was unrelenting in his roast session of the Canadian. As you can see up above, he basically said the Grizzlies can’t win a title with him on the roster. Moreover, he put Brooks’ basketball knowledge into question. “If you ever wondered why the Memphis Grizzlies is not ready to compete for a championship, look no further than this idiot right here,” Green said. “They’re actually depending on this guy to help them win a championship. And he says his game is cool. Quite frankly, that just shows how little you know about basketball. … Your level of understanding the game of basketball is at a fan level.”
This was an absolutely brutal takedown of Brooks that has a lot of NBA fans excited. Brooks has become extremely unlikeable, even compared to Green. That said, the next Grizzlies and Warriors game should be very interesting. Hopefully, these two go at each other in an intense, yet very competitive way. Let us know what you think of this new rivalry, in the comments down below.
