Draymond Green sounds off on his continued battling with NBA officials.
Draymond Green has won multiple NBA championships and has been an integral member of a Golden State Warriors team that will undoubtedly go down in the history books as one of the greatest ever. However, he's not in everyone's good books these days; in fact, he's saying that his beefs with NBA referees are getting a little too personal for his liking.
In an interview with The Athletic's Anthony Slater, a story reported by NBC Sports Bay Area, Green thinks that his head-to-heads with officials across the league has got to change. "It's bad. It's horrible," he said. "It's really bad. I don't know why it is. But I think it's ridiculous. It's ruining the game. It should be one of, if not the main priority, to be solved. It definitely should."
Later on in the interview, he admitted that a lot of referees might be out to get him because of a less-than-stellar reputation from years past. "A lot of it is personal. When you give someone so much authority and they make it me against you, you can't overcome that," he explained. While there has been no official retort from the league or any of its better-known officials, this is surely going to stoke the fires that already exist between Draymond and the NBA, an organization that has suspended the forward multiple times in his career up to this point.
