Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green calls out the NBA for its double standards and its poor treatment of players at a postgame conference on Monday night.
" I would like to talk about something that's bothering me. It's the treatment of the players in the league. To watch Andre Drummond, before the game, sit on the sidelines, then go to the back, and to come out in street clothes because a team is going to trade him it's bull---. And to see how they dogged James Harden when he asked for a trade few months back when he was with Houston, everyone destroyed that man. And yet a team can come out and say, Oh we want to trade a guy and then that guy has to go sit, and if he doesn't stay professional, then he's not good in someone's locker room, and he's the issue.
Green went on to say he gets fined constantly for speaking his mind on issues in the league, and feels like its not fair, when teams decide to impromptu to trade a player, and player has to be professional about it.
Green was fined $50,000 for comments he made to Turner Sports last season for his opinion about how the Phoenix Suns was treating their star guard Devin Booker. Green suggests Booker should leave the organization.
Green ended the topic on Monday night at the postgame conference when he said, " As players, we're told to, Ah, no, you can't say that, you can't say this. But teams can? At some point, the players must be respected in these situations. I'm sick of seeing it. Y'all have a great night."
