Draymond Green calls Kendrick Perkins ‘big ogre’

- Advertisement -

After the Warriors eliminated the Grizzlies and advanced to their sixth Western Conference finals in eight years, Draymond Green went off on a rant directed at Kendrick Perkins. “Something came to my phone earlier,” Green said to reporters. “Some guy saying I’m scared to shoot the basketball. Scared and me in the same sentence is brutal. But you got a big ogre on TV talking about what Draymond says ain’t the gospel. It is the gospel. What I say is the gospel. When you say that multiple times on several different segments, you must think what I say is the gospel. So, you got to come out and shut some guys up sometimes. When you got people talking out the side of their neck. ‘Anybody can make the pass Draymond make.’ That’s just stupid.

The season is over, but the future is bright. Even the enemy, Draymond, says so: “They got it. It will be good to see their progression over the next few years and see where they can take it. Because that’s an incredible young team. They can be special.” dailymemphian.com/section/sports…2:05AM

Sam Amick @sam_amick
Are we still doing jokes about the Mike Brown hire in Sacramento? His defensive adjustment – ​​Looney and Draymond starting and closing – has been the difference here. – 12:33AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Y’all wanted to shit on Mike Brown, but he won this game by going to the big lineup with Looney and Draymond. – 12:31AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Draymond sitting on 12p, 13r, 8a – 12:26AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
That’s the Draymond the Warriors need. Missed layup, everyone kinda hangs their head, sprints the ball up the floor and finds Steph for a 3. Made that fastbreak out of nothing. – 12:23AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green through 3 quarters: 37 points, 14/26 FGs (53.8%)
Rest of Warriors: 41 points, 15/50 FGs (30%) – 12:10AM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Draymond Green now has at least four turnovers in five of his past six games. – 12:04AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Though we all know Steph is going to drop a big 3-ball at some point in the fourth quarter, it’s been up to Klay and Draymond to keep the Warriors afloat. They likely decide the team’s Game 6 fate. – 12:01AM

Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Draymond Green turns the ball over more than he podcasts. And that’s saying something. – 11:56PM

Danny Leroux @Danny Leroux
Steph, Draymond and Klay each have their own awful turnover in the last minute+ – 11:56PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Draymond will decline the easiest, most-wide open shots on earth and it always somehow works. – 11:50PM

Christian Winfield @Krisplashed
Wiggins with the lead bounce pass to get Draymond running to the rim for easy oop to Looney. I liked that 11:50PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Draymond’s individual defense has been pretty poor by his standards in this series. – 11:48PM

Draymond Green would make a helluva ref; I’ve never seen him get a call correct… – 11:45PM

-39-25 rebounding advantage offsetting the giveaways
-Looney: 12 rebounds, Draymond 8rebs/8pts – 11:28PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
They don’t replace Poole and take out Draymond instead for upcoming 2 for 1 on defense? – 11:23PM

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Grizz aren’t paying Draymond any mind even when he’s in the paint. No thought to him shooting whatsoever, allowing them to load up on Steph, Poole, etc. – 11:10PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Steph, Draymond and Klay all looking at potential 40+ minutes – 11:02PM

After 1: Warriors 30, Grizzlies 26
-Energy ultra high, led by Draymond
-7/13 from 3
-Klay ablaze: 11 pts 4/5 FG, 3/3 3p
-Looney starts, grabs 11 rebounds in 9 minutes
Rebounds advantage 21-11 – 10:48PM

Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
If the Warriors happen to clinch, will they be petty and unoriginal enough to play “Whoop that trick?” After watching Draymond, I think there’s a real chance. – 10:33PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
This bigger starting lineup with Draymond and Looney did its job. In for defensive purposes. Held the Grizzlies to eight points in six minutes. Up 16-8. Jordan Poole enters. – 10:33PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Draymond closing in on his series-high already. – 10:31PM

Good start from Draymond, which is everything for the Warriors – 10:25PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Draymond Green looking like George Kittle at the receiving end of the break… – 10:25PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
First okay of the game is drawn up for Jaren Jackson Jr., as expected. He went through two or three screens and Draymond Green was right behind him. I bet the Warriors don’t want Dray leaving JJJ much – 10:23PM

CJ Holmes @cjholmes22
Steven Adams gets an offensive rebound on the Grizzlies’ first possession of the game, then gets fouled by Draymond Green. – 10:22PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Only 23 seconds into the game, and Draymond Green called for his first foul – 10:22PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
I think Kevon Looney starting is a big deal.
Positive for Grizz: Looney and Draymond playing together creates more spacing problems…
