Draymond Green is pissed off this week over what social media has done to his teammate as he deals with personal issues.
There have been a lot of false rumors circulating about Andrew Wiggins and his absence from the Golden State Warriors. In a recent edition of his podcast, Warriors forward Draymond Green defended Wiggins by blasting trolls for starting fake cheating rumors.
“Sometimes people disgust me,” Green said. “You don’t know what someone is dealing with, and then you make them deal with that… Stop it, it’s disgusting.”
“I’m not here whether to say it’s true or false,” the Warriors big man said. “I don’t know — not my business. But point being, it’s not yours either.
“Y’all are so thirsty to know what’s going on in someone’s life that that becomes the thing. You better have some cold hard evidence if you’re going to make that a thing. And quite frankly, I’ve just seen people talking. I’ve seen no evidence of anything… that’s insane. That’s nuts… with no confirmation or nothing.
“Sometimes people disgust me. We live in a disgusting world… Like I said, other it’s true or false, I don’t know if the world will ever know. Quite frankly, I don’t think it matters for the world to know if it is or isn’t… People’s kids have to live with that… It’s cringeworthy… It actually makes me lose more and more hope for humanity.”
On Thursday, Wiggins’ longtime girlfriend, Mychal Johnson, had to take to Twitter and fire off at trolls for sharing fake cheating rumors.
“The internet is really a sick place,” Johnson wrote alongside a vomiting emoji.
She also reposted a tweet that read: “Don’t believe everything you read on social media!!!”
Johnson also wrote: “The farthest thing from the truth. It’s sad y’all even doing this.”
Speaking with the media after a recent game, Curry said, “Friend to friend, teammate to teammate, just sending him support. It’s a tough situation in terms of him being away for so long, but necessary. Life is bigger than basketball. Whatever him and his family are going through, that’s all that matters. Whenever he’s ready to come back, I’m sure he will. That’s how he’s built in terms of being available. I know he’s missing the vibe and being with us and we miss him too.”
Wiggins has gotten public support from several of his Warriors teammates, but fans have been less forgiving over his absence and why nothing has been said as to why he has been off the court for so long.
Curry also said, “It’s interesting, there’s such a big spotlight on what we do on a daily basis and the fact that we have so many people that rely on us on a daily basis. To be able to give that energy back to your family is huge. We support him in all of that and whenever he’s ready to come back, he’ll be back.”
Wiggins hasn’t played since Feb. 13, when he recorded 29 points in a 135-126 win against the Wizards.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
