Draymond Green hits Kendrick Perkins several times after the initial disgusts

Adrenaline was flowing through Draymond Green after the Warriors’ victory in Game 6 against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night, making him stay up late, which led to a lot of use of social media.

A few hours after Green unleashed after the game on the comments made by ESPN NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins, the Warriors star continued to shoot the former NBA player on Twitter.

While bad blood probably already existed between Green and Perkins, the quarrel took a turn for the worse on Friday morning, when the latter appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” to discuss concerns about the Warriors. they were heading for Game 6.

“Can anyone actually tell Draymond Green that it’s okay to look at the basket and actually hit it?” Perkins said he would host Stephen A. Smith and Molly Qerim. “It simply came to our notice then. I mean, I’m sitting up here watching all the turnovers. He doesn’t even look at the basket.

“She is scared to shoot right now. So some of the assists he gets from Steph Curry, Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson, I could go out there and get the same passes. They open wide. It’s just a pass. So don’t let Draymond Green sit here and fool you as if everything that comes out of his mouth is the gospel. ”

Green did not score much in the first five games of the series, but went 6 out of 14 in the Game 6 victory, finishing with 14 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists. It was a game par excellence for the four-time NBA All-Star after several poor performances at the beginning of the series.

After winning the Warriors’ Western Conference semifinals 110-96 over the Grizzlies at the Chase Center, Green sat on the podium and took Perkins for those remarks.

“Something came on my phone earlier,” Green told reporters. “A guy who says I’m afraid to play basketball. Frightened and I in the same sentence is brutal. But you have a big ogre on TV talking about what Draymond says is not the gospel. It’s the gospel. What am I saying? it is the gospel. When you say this over and over again in different segments, you have to think that what I am saying is the gospel. So, you have to go out and shut up some guys sometimes. When you have people talking around your neck. “Anyone can take the step of Draymond.” It’s just stupid.

“But these are people who are committed to talking on TV about our game. “Anyone could do that.” Make that switch. We’d love to see her. I played against the guy by the way. I’m talking about Kendrick Perkins for those of you who don’t know. I never stop smoking. As the Memphis Grizzlies towels say, I don’t smoke. You couldn’t, so good luck. You had to go out and shut up people sometimes. It was a lot of fun. “
