Draymond Green wanted no smoke with Kendrick Perkins, so he decided to be the bigger man and squash the beef between them.
Green blasted Perkins on an episode of his podcast released last weekend, calling him the racial slur, ‘coon.’ Perkins took serious issue with Green’s choice of words and threatened to put hands on him for being disrespectful.
During a recent episode of The Draymond Green Show, Green apologized for the racially insensitive language he used towards Perkins.
“The other day, when I was speaking, I used a word that carries a racial connotation. When I used the word, I could’ve very well replaced the word with ‘clown.’ I could’ve very well replaced the word with ‘idiot,’ ‘moron,’ I could’ve replaced the word with anything and continued in stride…” Green said.
“As you know from me, I don’t hide behind anything. I stand on what I mean and what I say… As someone who stands against racism and someone who has stood against it for years, who is not afraid to get out in front of it, I can admit right here that I was wrong. Regardless of how I may use the word with my friends or how that word may be perceived anywhere else in the world, it was wrong here. And that I will acknowledge.”
Good for Green squashing this beef before it truly got out of hand.
