Two Michigan Basketball Greats Take Shots At Each Other
Chris Webber made an unusual statement about Draymond Green during the Warriors first round win, and Green was quick to set the record straight.
The comments came during game five of the Warriors / Spurs series. Draymond was in the middle of a spectacular game scoring 17 points, getting 10 boards, and 7 assists. Webber commented on how important he was to the Warriors, but that he might not even start on some other NBA teams.
Draymond is a two time all-star and has two championship rings. He is one of the best defensive players in the league, and can play pretty much any position on the court.
Green was asked about it in the post game press conference, and handled the statement with surprising grace.
Green agreed that he doesn't play with the scorers mentality, but scoring isn't what makes him great. In the end Green even commented that he thinks it would be hard to find a head coach or GM that wouldn't put him in their starting lineup.
I don't want to assume too much, but I don't think that Webber was trying to downplay how good Draymond is. When you're doing play by play, sometimes things just come out of your mouth, and not always the way you intended them. I do think it would be a good idea for Webber to set the record straight, because we all know that Green loves to get into a good beef.
