Draymond: “I changed the game of basketball with the help of Steph Curry. Steph Curry changed the game of basketball with the help of me. It was a match made in heaven. And then all of the sudden f*cking Klay Thompson comes into his own and becomes one of the top two shooters in the world, and us three f*cking changing the game of basketball forever.”
Chris Broussard: “A journalist would have said, ‘wait a second, Dray, you’re an All-Star, we’ll give you that, but YOU changed the game of basketball with the help Steph Curry??... Draymond was critical to the Warriors dynasty because he could play a small-ball five and virtually guard every position… But Draymond is what you call a spectacular role player… I love Draymond but he’s feeling himself a little bit.”
Rob Parker: “This is what happens when players interview players. You can’t just let them say anything without checking them. EVERYBODY listening to this podcast goes ‘WHAAAAT?’… He didn’t ‘change the game’, under any circumstances, I’m sorry. Nothing he did hadn’t been done before.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Rob Parker and Chris Broussard discuss recent comments Draymond Green made that anointed himself a trailblazer in NBA history, saying he ‘changed the game of basketball’ for his role as a flex forward on a Golden State Warriors team that won three NBA Finals in four years led by Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson.
Thompson and Curry are rightfully considered arguably the two greatest shooters in NBA history, and Durant may go down as one of the 10 greatest players ever in his own right, but Rob and Chris have a hard time seeing how Draymond fits in with the other three in the realm of ‘changing the game’, when his role on that team wasn’t something the NBA hadn’t seen before.
