Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green blasted ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins for his NBA Draft coverage.
Green and Perkins have a longstanding feud related to the former Celtics center’s NBA Finals coverage. In this day and age of sports coverage, anything over a week is longstanding. Sorry, that’s how we work.
Perkins was on ESPN’s NBA Draft coverage as well on Thursday night, and commented on Chet Holmgren’s health regimen.
Obviously, this was met with some chagrin from Green, who questioned Perkins’ intent.
And to think, Draymond was trying to stay off Twitter for a few days! Sometimes the man just can’t help himself.
Warriors: Draymond Green takes shot at Kendrick Perkins, again
Now that Green has his own podcast, he doesn’t hold back. The public has access to him at all times, as Green is setting up his post-playing career.
Draymond has always had plenty to say on the court, but considering the Dubs have won four championships, he has very little more to accomplish. He’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and arguably the Dennis Rodman of his generation (in a good way).
Golden State may still have championships to win, and Green will stay in shape for those runs. He’s a capable player at age 32. He still has 3-4 good seasons left in him before the decline hits, and he’s making millions in the process.
The podcast will only help matters, and his social media feed is downright hilarious — especially when he’s taking on Perkins.
