Draymond Green has never been one to mince words.
The Golden State Warriors forward gave his thoughts on LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, who are in ninth place in the Western Conference standings. In doing so, he also spoke on the fan base and their recent behavior towards their team. During the Lakers’ home loss against the New Orleans Pelicans last month, the fans at Crypto.com Arena showered the team with boos. Los Angeles lost to New Orleans by 28 points and LeBron and Westbrook combined for 14 turnovers.
On a recent episode of The Draymond Green Show, the Golden State Warriors star forward laid into the fan base of the Lakers as their current team continues to slide down in the standings.
Green thought the jeers were “distasteful” since he’s seen LeBron make the pass he was trying to complete several times.
“Some boos rang out when Bron threw the turnover where he tried to hook the pass around to Talen Horton-Tucker in the corner, “Green said. “I’ve seen LeBron make that pass several times and it is an amazing pass. Didn’t complete it yesterday and the boos rang out? I thought that was pathetic. I thought it was extremely pathetic, and like I said, I thought it was very distasteful from a fanbase of an organization that has the most championships in the NBA.
“Like, let’s not be like spoiled brats. It’s okay to be spoiled. Like ya, you can 100% be spoiled. We all get spoiled by things at times at one point in our life or another, but let’s not be brats. That was about as bratty as something I’ve seen, considering that this team just won a championship not even a full two years ago and now you’re booing? I thought that was utterly ridiculous, and like I said, I thought it was very distasteful.”
Even though LeBron is averaging 28.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 6.3 assists at 37 years old and in his 19th campaign, the team just cannot pull it together and it doesn’t make it better that Anthony Davis cannot stay healthy.
